The Codex Sinaiticus facsimile edition is an excellent representation of the original manuscript. The facsimile is a high resolution photo of every page of the manuscript and is of equal or better quality of previous manuscripts I have acquired over the years. I would highly recommend this facsimile to anyone who has an interest in ancient biblical manuscripts
Arrived very promptly, followed via UPS tracking; very nice slip case that has its own box which is in another padded box for shipping; very nice reference book that lists which book, chapter, and verse is on each page
The images are far better than the British Library web site; very high quality paper without a shinny glare; the book itself is very heavy; there are pages that contain faded texts
I recommend going to the British web site in order to see the Codex. I thankfully use the British web site every day; nevertheless, these images are better.
In 1933, the Soviet Union sold the codex to the British Museum (after 1973 British Library) for ÃÂ£100 000 raised by public subscription (worth ÃÂ£5.3 million in 2011)
Coming from one that knows what it is like to have the $6,500 Codex Vaticanus in the hands, this is an exceptional value.
I am deeply moved with gratitude with the realization of what I now own. It would be a high insult for CBD-Hendrickson Publishers to receive a single return or complaint. This is a true statement.
I hope copies of this Codex reach the Monks at Sinai in speed.
