Regarding Greek Palaeography, you can find both the 1893 and 1912 editions of Maunde Thompson’s classic work, “An Introduction to Greek & Latin Palaeography” at the following link.

You may well have trouble locating these. I got mine at the 1997
Oxford Papyrology Summer School. Someone brought a box of them from

My only suggestion is to contact the publisher:
You might have better luck finding the first edition of Turner's Greek
Manuscripts of the Ancient World.
I found this bibliography, which looks excellent:
