At a comparitively moderate cost this true likeness of the Codex Alexandrinus will find its way to the different libraries of Europe and America and be welcomed as the best possible representative of the original.”— The Times, August 21, 1884.

The Codex Vaticanus and the Codex Sinaiticus were reproduced by Typography, a process liable to error. 61 List of Additions (MSS. and Printed Books), 1831-34, 4 vols. 8vo. 108 62 List of Additions, MSS. 1836-1840, 8vo. 108 63 Catalogue of Additions, MSS. 1841-1845, 8vo. £1. 64
