Re: [textualcriticism] Re: Try this...
Whether or not you solve the Google problem, you may download the Scrivener
Sinaticus collation from my site with this direct link. It is not the
Google-marked version. 8.62 MB.
Also, Scrivener's collation of Codex Augiensis, along with 50 other mss.,
also a pdf. 30.3 MB.
While you are at it, I recommend downloading some Unicode fonts useful for
New Testament textual criticism. I did a fair amount of searching and
testing of many free Unicode fonts, and these are the best for free in my
Doulos SIL for critical apparatus and entire IPA, 1.1 MB:
GentiumAlt font for Greek, IPA (has the entire IPA except 5 tone bars), and
is a decent font just for every-day English/Latin; 9 MB; Debian package
Ezra SIL for Hebrew, this being the clearest free Hebrew font by
far. Though Cardo98 is also good for all three, Greek, Hebrew and critical
apparatus. 3.3 MB.

Ever wanted to read T.K. Abbott & Ferrar's (1877) introduction to
Family 13? Its on the net but scanned page by page in an inconvenient
So I reformated those scans into a fastloading, readable long strip,
made for your browser. Now you can read it in comfort online, copy
out what you want.

- Having spent a littel time examining this "Google" book resource, I am
left saddened. This could have been a great asset to TC listers, but
most of the material that is still useful costs, it is not free. Many
of the downloads are corrupted. Tattum's Egyptian grammar has about
every third page blank, Curtuis's etymology is corrupted, Hug's work
costs, and compared to the great resolution of the CSNTM, these
resolutions (also often just 1 bit data) are POOR. Vincent's "History
of TC.." was okay, but had about 28 duplicated pages at the front,
most blank. PDF files can be very very sharp, the free one's here are
not. DjVu files are typically equal to the better PDF resolutions, but
this site does not use DjVu.
There is however, some useful materials! I got several readable Arabic
grammars, an Ethiopic grammar, Wilson's Syriac grammar, et al. Did
anyone get the English-Armenian dictionary? If so please let me know!
My download was not good of this dictionary. Or does anyone know of a
digital copy of a good Armenian dictionary??
Apparently Google is not quality conscious herein! Maybe they will
improve with time, but for the free downloads, I suspect they will not
seek to improve. Still, it is a useable resource, but not nearly as
powerful as it could/should have been. :-(

- I should mention where I got my Scrivener pdfs.
I do not know who scanned them, but I got them from Mark Langley, pastor of
Reformed Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas. He nowhere restricts
re-distribution of them, so I figured since I had the bandwidth to upload
them, and webspace, I would offer them for download.
I paid $9.99 US each for the CDs, as well as several other great CDs. His
shipping service is inexpensive.
He offers many other titles surely of interest to members of this
list. His whole list is here:
- I emailed Mark Langley yesterday in order to clarify the provenance of
these Scriverner PDFs I have made downloadable from my website.
He stated to me by email today that he is the one who scanned them, from
his copy, and that I am free to do with them as I wish, as there is no

- The Washington Post announces a major exhibit of early Bible manuscripts:
- There will be a special session devoted to the Freer MSS at this
year's SBL in Washington, DC, USA. Larry Hurtado organised and edited
a book on the Freer MSS which should be published in time for the SBL
meeting. I think that Prof. Hurtado had something to do with reminding
the Smithsonian that they had one of the oldest gospel codices in the
world languishing in their vaults. I believe that he encouraged them
to do something on the centenary of the Freer MSS acquisition by
Freer. Of course, I might have my wires crossed...
On the Washington Post article, I wouldn't have called Tischendorf and
the monks of St Catherine's "a group of excavators."
