Well he would say that, wouldn't he! I imagine the general
editors/publishers of the Oxford, New Cambridge and other editions might
just want to question the absoluteness of the claim advanced here.

As has been said before on this list, there are better and worse Ardens
(2 and 3) just as there are better and worse examples in the other
series.

But since I am parti pris in this, I shall say no more.
