The Codex Alexandrinus (Royal Ms. 1 D V-VIII) in reduced Photograpic Facsimile; New Testament and Clementine Epistles

London: British Museum/Longmans and Co., 1909. Small Quarto. Item #028858

11 [286] pages. Along with Codex Sinaiticus and Vaticanus, it is one of the earliest and most complete manuscripts of the New Testament. Before the discovery of Sinaticus, it was the best source for New Testament texual critisisum. Scholars from the editor, Sir Frederick Kenyon, who felt there were five different scribal hands to the views of Aland and Metzger who thought only two or three hands could be detected have also determined the very pure verison of the Apocalypse is of special note (some scribes edited parts of earlier parts of the New Testament). Housed in the original chemise and slipcase thus protecting all the fasciles. Copies have become scarce since most are found in universities or museum libraries. Box has split along upper edge.
