  • Text Codex Vaticanus 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.”
