Since its first publication in 1935, Alfred Rahlfs' Septuagint edition has provided an important basis for Septuagint research worldwide. To ensure that this will continue to be the case in the future, the internationally acclaimed Septuagint researcher, Robert Hanhart, has re-edited the German Bible Society's reference edition of the Rahlfs-Septuagint.The Greek Bible text and the critical apparatus were corrected and supplemented in far more than a thousand individual places. As of now, the resulting "Editio altera" will be the new definitive Septuagint reference edition. From now on, for any academic work performed on the Greek Old Testament, the following equation will apply: Septuagint = "Rahlfs-Hanhart"!

This product adds the critical apparatus in a parallel reference tool to the tagged LXX1 text, together the LXX2 Apparatus covering alternate versions of the text.

A couple of notes to potential buyers:
1. The parallel LXX texts only include Joshua (around 2-3 chapters), Judges, Daniel, Bel, Susanna, and Tobit. Thus, you're not going to get too much to work with in the second text. However, the parts you do get are extremely useful, because you can throw the two texts into comparison and get some really interesting results and differences. So if you are working in Judges or Daniel, you're in luck!
2. The LXX apparatus is very disappointing. Very few variants are listed in comparison to Gottingen. I bought it with intending to use it frequently but just ignore it now. The LXX2 apparatus is laughable.

Overall, I would only recommend this if you were doing work in the aforementioned books LXX2 does have (and then, I would highly for the verse comparison!). But otherwise, just buy the LXX by itself without the apparatus and the extra text, and Gottigen for the apparatus as you need it. If money is an issue, Brooke, McLean, ...

If money is an issue, Brooke, McLean, Thackeray did a critical apparatus of a chunk of the LXX which you can find online for free (and legally!) which is much better than Rahlf's.
