Comment: "In 1955 The Jewish Publication Society decided to issue a new edition of its translation of the Holy Scriptures set in larger type and produced in more attractive format than its edition of 1917. Advantage was taken of this opportunity to correct a number of typographical errors and to identify the haftarot and other Scriptural readings. No changes were made in the text of the translation." - a note appended to the end of the Preface.
