Edward Robinson (1794-1863) philologist, geographer, and professor of Biblical literature. His publication of Biblical Researches in Palestine (1841) "established his reputation as one of the foremost geographers and Biblical scholars of his time. The lapse of three generations has placed him even higher in the history of scholarship, for it is now recognized that his work marks an epoch in the development of historical geography and related fields."--Dict. Amer. Biog. XVI:40.

"The Harmony of Le Clerc, which was the basis of Newcome's work, was published at Amsterdam in 1699, medium folio. That of Newcome was printed at Dublin in 1778, large folio... The principle of arrangement is similar to that of Griesbach in his Synopsis Evangeliorum, especially as republished by Roediger, Halle 1827. The general chronological order of Le Clerc and Newcome was preferred, as being on the whole judicious, and as already familiar to the great body of theologians. The notes of Newcome have also been retained; not because they are distinguished for much of original or independent thought; but rather as being a judicious compilation from the remarks of others.. On similar grounds, his preface and sectional divisions have also been retained."--Robinson's preface, pp iii-iv.
