Codex Fuldensis online

I'm not sure how long it's been around, but I've just noticed that Codex Fuldensis, the sixth century Gospel Harmony, thought to bear a close relation to Tatian's Diatessaron, is now online here.

In addition, the bulk of Ranke's 1868 edition of Fuldensis is available here at Google Books. It's browsable on-line or can be downloaded (14.3MB .pdf).

Unfortunately it's lacking pages 465ff, which comprise the diplomatic and critical commentaries, the table of contents and corrigenda, and the folding plate opposite the final page of text, p. 572. The body of the text is clear and dark though (especially in the .pdf version) and I didn't notice any of the gaps or blurs which are common in Google Books scans.

The site referenced by PJ Williams is no longer active.
I have moved to BTinternet.
The first link is to the BT site, and the second is to the mirror site I have set up.
Best regards,
Dave.

Further to the previous posting, it should be noted that the title of the original post is a bit misleading.

The edition mentioned in the previous comment is actually based on an internet text of Cod. Sangallensis 56 (see http://www.btinternet.com/~daveat168/Page5.htm and http://users.belgacom.net/chardic/html/tatien_intro.html)
so isn't Codex Fuldensis itself even though there is, of course, plenty of overlap.

Images of Cod. Sangallensis 56 are now available on the CESG:

With reference to John McChesney-Young's posting:

I tried the link he presented, and found it impossible to access the text.
Does anyone know what is wrong, and why I cannot read the text, never mind download the pdf?

I have started to replace the Codex Fuldensis images with the Cod Sang 56 images, all linked to this latter site.

In reference to his opening point, it was Sievers who conflated Sangallensis 56 with Fuldensis, implying identicality.
Until I can access Ranke's work, or the manusript, which being in abbreviated Latin, requires some interpretation, prior to transliteration, I cannot truely judge on this matter, or correct any errors which Sievers might have introduced.

I have successfully downloaded Ranke's book from Google books, and am now in the process of re-typesetting it in as close to the original format as my computer will allow.
A for Codex sangall 56, and Codex Fuldensis, No, one is not the copy of the other, but both are copies of an earlier document, or documents.
Indication, supported by Sievers is that San Gall is a more faithful copy of the original than is Fuldensis, which is clearly not Victor's original manuscript, but an 8th century Insular, (Irish), copy.
Access to the work in progress is available at either of my two sites.
