I ordered this edition from Hard Press by accident, after looking at the facsimile edition with the yellow cover from Kessinger, which is what comes up when you "search inside". The Hard Press edition transliterates (but does not translate) all the Ancient Greek text included in the original, which is deeply annoying, and in no way helpful to those who couldn't read it in the first place -- since I could, this is a step backward. This edition omits all Newton's marginalia. There is no front or back matter, so the editor is anonymous. The beautiful illustrations of the Temple of Solomon that are so crucial to the original are missing without explanation in the Hard Press edition. Its just not good for scholars, and I am really wondering who its intended audience might be. Certainly, it's not me.

For those interested in the Biblical history of the 2nd temple era, your library should include Sir Isaac Newton’s: The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended. His investigations into the Persian era offer insights into some of the problems with early Rabbinic tradition concerning the Persian era.

Here is an excerpt from Chapter VI: Of the Empire of the Persians which identifies the root cause of the some of the missing Persian chronology:

“Thus all the Jews conclude the Persian Empire with Artaxerxes Longimanus, and Darius Nothus, allowing no more Kings of Persia, than they found in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah; and referring to the Reigns of this Artaxerxes, and this Darius, whatever they met with in profane history concerning the following Kings of the same names: so as to take Artaxerxes Longimanus, Artaxerxes Mnemon and Artaxerxes Ochus, for one and the same Artaxerxes; and Darius Nothus, and Darius Codomannus, for one and the same Darius; and Jaddua, and Simeon Justus, for one and the same High-Priest. Those Jews who took Herod for the Messiah, and were thence called Herodians, seem to have grounded their opinion upon the seventy weeks of years, which they found between the Reign of Cyrus and that of Herod: but afterwards, in applying the Prophesy to Theudas, and Judas of Galilee, and at length to Barchochab, they seem to have shortned the Reign of the Kingdom of Persia. These accounts being very imperfect, it was necessary to have recourse to the records of the Greeks and Latines, and to the Canon recited by Ptolemy, for stating the times of this Empire.

This book adds a wider perspective to ones view of history. Takes a little getting used to reading old English words and some perseverance to understand what is being said in some passages. However shows great insight into Issac Newton understanding of both history & Scripture.

This book is pretty hard to get through but man does it show you just how much Isaac Newton really knows about history.
