Greek Manuscripts at Princeton

Recently I came across a review which alerted me to the existence of of S. Kotzabassi & N.P. Sevcenko, Greek Manuscripts at Princeton, Sixth to Nineteenth Century: A Descriptive Catalogue (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2010).
There is a fair bit of information at the publisher's website (here), which suggests that around 25 of the 64 manuscripts presented are NT manuscripts. In fact the sample catalogue entry is for minuscule 1357, with a very full description and many colour photos.
And Tommy has managed to procure a review copy (for himself, not to share) and so we shall soon have a very thorough critical review of the entire volume (in great detail).


  1. "...a very thorough critical review of the entire volume (in great detail)."

    No pressure Tommy...

  2. I will be interested to know if there are any LXX mss in the group, especially Greek catenae Job mss. If so, it might be worth a drive to Princeton...

  3. You can find the table of contents and other tidbits here

  4. I just received a copy I bought off of amazon. The list price is 195 dollars, though there are a few new volumes available on amazon marketplace for 50 dollars plus 4 for shipping. I paid 54 and it was still in the shrinkwrap. This is a magnificient looking volume very large as well.
