The Man Who Unwrote the Bible.
In the mid-1720s, Alexander Cruden
took on a self-imposed task of Herculean proportions: he decided to compile the most thorough concordance of the King James Version
of the Bible
(777,746 words). The first edition of Cruden's Concordance
was published in 1737. Every similar undertaking before or since has been the work of a vast team of people. Cruden worked alone in his lodgings, writing the whole thing out by hand. Cruden's day job was as a "Corrector of the Press" (proofreader). He would give hawk-eyed attention to prose all day long. Then he would come home at night to read the Bible—stopping at every single word to secure the right sheet from the tens of thousands of pieces of paper all around him and to record accurately the reference in its appropriate place. He had no patron, no publisher, no financial backers: his only commission was a divine one.
has never been out of print. A new book
tells the tale of Alexander the Corrector's bizarre, sad life (scroll down to about half page)
