One of the grandest and most valuable biblical productions of our time, whether considered as a triumph of research, or of scholarship, or of typographical magnificence.

Romæ, 1869-81 A typographical facsimile of the original Manuscript beautifully printed on stout vellum paper. The few gaps in the Codex have been supplied from the ordinary version and filled in with small Greek type.




Greek, folio, an absolute facsimile produced by order of the Trustees of the British Museum, as the first and most important instalment of the perfect reproduction of the Alexandrine Codex, 144 leaves of stout cardboard printed in photo-lithography, back and front, (sells £7.), in portfolio, £6.


Old Testament, 3 vols. in portfolios, £2. 1881-83 The purchaser of these noble volumes will be, to all scholarly intents, the possessor of the famous Codex A,the first if not the most ancient of the 51 Uncial MSS. upon which all modern biblical criticism is based. Baber's and Woide's edition in so-called facsimile-types, formerly published by the British Museum, was a great boon to the learned world; but how different must be the feelings of a scholar in regarding that edition and this? With this facsimile, he may pursue his researches independently of other men's work, necessarily defective and unsatisfactory as that always is; and at the same time enjoy the sensation of being constantly able in his own private study to look upon and examine one of the most precious treasures of Early Christian Literature. The Alexandrine Codex was transcribed about four hundred years after the death of Christ. 15819 CODEX ALEXANDRINUS. Vetus Testamentum Græcum e Codice MS.

the same, royal folio, LARGE PAPER, russia extra, 36s 1799 15824 EVANGELIA QUATUOR GRÆCE cum Canonibus Eusebii, 410 leaves (in 2 vols. sm. 4to. including ten blank).

Fine Byzantine Illuminated Manuscript upon Vellum, with 4 large Paintings of the Evangelists, the capitals and headings in gold, beautifully bound in brown morocco extra, blind-tooled, enclosed in a red velvet case, with compartments and spring, perfect throughout, £150. (Constantinople) about A.D. 1000

It is a circumstance of very great rarity to find all the four pictures of the Evangelists in one MS., and an unusual interest attaches in consequence to the present codex, which is quite perfect, and also important as having been copied from one of the most ancient texts. A couple of leaves were, however, cancelled

by a nearly contemporary corrector, who substituted three leaves in a different hand-writing, for the purpose of supplying the omission of John viii. 1-11, which was originally absent in this MS. as well as in the earlier codex from which it was derived. As far as any peeuliarities of the writing are concerned, it has to be said that there are not very many instances of itacism; the dative iota is sometimes ascript, and sometimes omitted, but never subscript; and the breathings are scarcely modified from the old rectangular shape.

The word used in John i. 28, was originally Bethabara, but the scribe (not the corrector) erased it himself and changed it to Bethania, which is sufficient to prove that he corrected his copy from one of the very ancient MSS. written before the Church accepted the alteration suggested by Origen who first substituted Bethabara for Bethania.


Splendid Manuscript on Vellum, beautifully written in a very clear hand, the Canon of Eusebius within elegant borders, richly illuminated in gold and colours, the heading of each Gospel in letters of gold, within elaborately illuminated ornaments, numerous capitals in gold; adorned with Three large Miniatures of St. Matthew, St. Mark, and St. John, executed in colours on a gold ground; bound in brown Levant morocco, elegantly ornamented on back and sides after the antique, vellum fly-leaves, and gilt edges, enclosed in a solander case covered with rich crimson velvet, and lined inside with white silk velvet, by BEDFORD, A PERFECT GEM, £200. Sec. XI

PERFECT with the exception of the leaf which should contain Luke xix. 10-26, and which has been cut away, as well as the leaf on which was the miniature representing the painting of that Evangelist.

A Manuscript no less precious for its text, than as a specimen of Byzantine Art in the eleventh century. The paintings which represent St. Mark and St. John (that of Matthew being damaged by the loss of colour) are infinitely superior to the ordinary character of the work in old MSS. The design and the execution are alike admirable. Indeed the graceful style of ornamention used in the borders to the Canon (arches of gold richly decorated, supported by light pillars of coloured marbles) as well as the Gospel-headings, is quite sufficient to give this MS. a special artistic rank among decorated Codices of the Greek Gospels.

The handwriting is an excellent cursive with headings in a semi-uncial character; there is no division between words, and the breathings are noted in the quadrate (or half H) shape. The dative iota is not subcribed, but generally affixed at the end of

the word (and occasionally omitted). Another point for remark is the use of the epenthetic v before consonants; but this is not always seen in the text. Abbreviations are only adopted in the words usually so written in the earliest MSS., and in a few places where terminations are contracted for want of space.

The text offers an immense number of valuable Various Readings, but generally agrees with the received version. A remarkable feature of the MS. is the prologue to each Gospel, differing from the known prefaces of the Fathers as given by Erasmus, Mill, and other editors.
