Chronologically, this is the tenth Greek New Testament issued in America, but it is the first to use the standard 1550 Stephanus text, and it became widely used in America. "Wilson's New testament had an enormous circulation, and is still [in 1883] in use by very many, Probably no edition was more commonly used by the mass of clergymen and students from 1823 to 1840" - Hall, CRITICAL BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE GREEK NEW TESTAMENT IN AMERICA.
