This is general editorial practice. In the MSS, accentual units are
usually written together, that means, all words that belong to one
stress are written as a single word. This also applies to
combinations of article + noun, or preposition + noun etc. To
facilitate using the texts for readers these accentual units are
regularly split up into separate words in editions.
