I just downloaded the John Lightfoot collection and seem to be missing volumes 11 and 12.  Although, since it only contains 11 vols, maybe vol 13 is mislabeled and should be labeled vol 11.

You're right. Comparing to the product page, it's hard to match vol '13' up.

Logos is running a proofreading special. Want to guess who the author of Haydock's commentary is? DR ... and all this time I thought it was HaydockStick out tongue And here you are learning a new way to count ... I still haven't figured out what the base is?

Looking at http://www.logos.com/product/8549/the-whole-works-of-the-rev-john-lightfoot and Vol 13 contents, wondering if Vol. 13 is a typo (should be Vol 11 to match web page description: Assembly of Divines plus personal letters).  Edit: noticed title page has Vol XIII (wonder is web page should have Vol 13 instead of Vol 11 plus a note explaining lack of Vol 11 and Vol 12) ?

Figured it out. John Lightfoot also wrote the more well known Talmud Hebraica (separately available in Logos).

If you go to the table of contents Page cvi, you'll notice chaps 11 and 12 are not highlighted and chap 11 was the first installment of Talmud Hebraica (he wrote the second installment later (chap 12).

By the way, if you're getting the volumes all mixed up, the table of contents (the real one) is good  to quickly find your way.

Another neat thing is the matrix of OT generations (eg who was living at the same time as who else). I'm in Targum Pseudo-Jonathan and Seth was the ancient teacher of Isaac (after Abraham tried to roast him). In the same account, Sarah keeled over when Satan told her what Abraham had done (not mentioning that God was involved, of course).

The whole series of volumes is just chock-full of interesting stuff. If you're in the Talmud, he has an index of word usage specific to the Talmuds.

The final volume should be labled Vol. 11 and not Vol. 13.

Hmm... you might be right.  But then this collection wasn't really the "WHOLE" works of John Lightfoot now, wasn't it?  Maybe it should be renamed, "The Almost Whole Collection"

I notice, even using Libronix, that Lightfoot's volume 2 'catches' as a valid commentary (e.g. when I was checking Genesis 30:27, Lightfoot showed up in the parade of commentaries. That's pretty nice.
