- Text Codex Vaticanus Cambridge.org provides a description of the product. “…Originally issued in nine parts between 1906 and 1940, this reissue is bound in four volumes. Volume one contains the books of Genesis, Exodus, and Leviticus. Following Swete’s smaller Septuagint (1887-1894) the running text is that of Codex Vaticanus (B) suplemented by Codex Alexandrinus (A) or another unvial when B is defective. The edition provides an extensive critical apparatus, taking account of numerous uncial manuscripts, fragments, and palimpsests, over sixty cursive manuscripts, a sample lectionary, early daughter versions of the Septuagint, including the Armenian, Bohairic, Sahidic, Ethiopian, Old Latin, Palestinian Aramaic, and Syro-hexapla, and a wide range of Patristic quotations.”

- If you know the title of the book(s) you need, fill out the Interlibrary Loan form and we will get the book for you! (if you need more than one title, simply hit the back button after you have submitted the form and fill in the next title’s information.)
- Don’t forget to stop by the Circulation Desk to pick up a Consortium sticker for your student ID. The sticker allows you to check out materials from ASU, AUM, Troy-Montgomery, and Huntingdon College as well as the Alabama Public Library Service (APLS).
- The world of Interlibrary Loan thrives on an international network of libraries that collaborated to form a catalog called WorldCat. If you find yourself needing Interlibrary Loan books very often, you might want to become familiar with WorldCat.
