...There once was a commentary series known as An American Commentary on the Old/New Testament; NT edited by Alvah Hovey, D.D., LL.D. with NT published prior to 1900 and OT published after 1900.

Currently there are 9 commentaries from the original series tagged as ACOT or ACNT in Logos:

The following ACNT volumes in Logos do not have the ACNT series metadata:

Commentary on the Gospel of Luke - George R. Bliss
Commentary on the Gospel of John - Alvah Hovey (currently listed in "The Complete Commentary on the New Testament" series)
A Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles - Horatio B. Hackett
Commentary on the Epistles to the Corinthians - Ezra P. Gould
Commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians - Alvah Hovey
Commentary on the Epistle to the Philippians - J.B. Gough Pidge
Commentary on the Epistle of James - Edwin T. Winkler

The below ACNT volumes are not in Logos currently:

Commentary on the Gospel of Mark - W.N. Clarke D.D.
Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans - Albert N. Arnold & Rev. D.B. Ford
Commentary on the Epistle to the Ephesians - Justin A. Smith D.D.
Commentary on the Pastoral Epistles & Philemon - H. Harvey D.D.

I guess eventually this might be suggested to update the metadata, but I was so fascinated by this today I had to share.

I realized early in the CCC enterprise that many of the commentaries we were getting as part of the book-at-a-time collections were actually part of commentary sets in their own right. I would have prefered to pick up those commentaries as sets, but Logos was already moving down the tracks so I went ahead and hopped on board. I'm sure there are some complete commentary sets that could be pieced together which include things already in those CCCs. I have three of James Moffatt's commentaries now in Logos and one in hardback...I would like to get the complete set of what he produced, even if it doesn't cover every book in the Bible.

Metadata issues are best reported at Metadata correction proposals. I went ahead and added a line there.

Hayley has now updated the metadata, with the following comment:

  • I have added the series title to as many of these as I could confirm. It’s not unheard of for a book to be republished in a new series, or outside of its original series. In cases like these we defer to the text of whatever edition we’re replicating, hence the one “The Complete Commentary on the New Testament” volume, and a couple of volumes whose series titles I am leaving blank.

Since I don't have any of these volumes I can't check out the changes, so if you disagree with any of the judgements made, you'll have to add it back to the Metadata page yourself.

Note: 5.1 allows us to edit series metadata ourselves, so if you want

Paul Newsome:
Commentary on the Gospel of John - Alvah Hovey (currently listed in "The Complete Commentary on the New Testament" series)

included in your ACNT series instead, you can make it so. Same with the "series titles I am leaving blank".
