An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828)  (1828) 
by Matthew Henry

Old Testament and Gospels/Acts sections first published between 1706 and 1710; Remainder of New Testament (Epistles and Revelation) edited and completed from Henry's notes, in 1721 in folio form, by a committee of nonconformist ministers. Popularly known as "Matthew Henry's Commentary".

This particular printing appears to be an undated reprint by Ed. Barrington & Geo. D. Haswell of the First American Edition printed by Towar & Hogan in 1828. The section(s) containing the actual commentary appear to be taken from the same type setup as the Towar and Hogan edition which can be found on the Hathi Trust site (Volume 1). This has a clearer reproduction and can therefore be used for comparison where punctuation is too faint to be identified in the current reproduction of the Barrington and Haswell reprint. Interestingly a correction was found in Barrington & Haswell's Psalm 7 where smaller type was used on one line to allow the insertion of a word missed out in the Towar and Hogan 1828/9 printing; though strangely, in Psalm 9:6 in Barrington & Haswell a comma has been moved from the correct position in Towar and Hogan to a nonsensical position before the previous word "cities".

The obvious assumption from the title page of the 1828 Towar and Hogan edition is that it is derived directly from the 1811 Burder & Hughes (London, Samuel Bagster), described by Henry's biographer Williams as "the best edition", and, examining a couple of pages of Volume 4, in general that seems to be followed very closely, but some differences have been noted which seem to have come from elsewhere, e.g "the other three" found at Preface to the Prophetical Books, page vi.
