      Jim and James,
      My alma mater Amherst College has a copy of Baber in the archives, and when I was there two years ago in the throws of helping Sigrid Peterson on Fourth Maccabees - as well as Rob Hiebert, in charge of the Goettingen volume - I photographed all the Fourth Macc. pages and a few from 1-2 Samuel.  I have the Fourth Maccabee pages printed out on 4X6" photo papers.  The Samuel pages are on the hard drive.  I can't find off the top of my head the Maccabee page files.  If I can be of asssistance, tell me.  I may get back to Amherst some time soon and - providing I'm there on a week day when the archives are open - would be willing to photo Jonah 4:2-5.  That's quite a job, James, photographing the whole thing!  The Baber work is the eighth world wonder - a facsimile done by hand rather than camera!  And done well!

      Oh the wonders of pseudofacsimiles!

       

      I’d love to see a copy. Smiling face (black and white)

       

      Thanks, James.

      I photographed all of Baber's pseudo-facsimile of Codex A a couple of
      years ago and could probably provide an image of the passage in question,
      if that would suit. As you may be aware, the Baber edition is a
      19th-century transcription of the codex that aims to duplicate its size,
      script, pagination, and other characteristics (it's like Tischendorff's
      pseudo-facsimile of Sinaiticus, if you're familiar with that). So, what
      I'm offering is a photograph of a page from that transcription, rather
      than a photograph (or photograph of a photograph) of the actual manuscript
      itself.

      James
