Codex Sinaiticus on sale
Just a quick note for the bibliophiles out there: Hendrickson’s beautiful facsimile of the Codex Sinaiticus is now on sale for $200 from CBD. (If you call up CBD, they’ll offer you a coupon for free shipping too.) This is a real discount – the best price I have seen previously on this volume is around $600 (the list price is $800).
This is a superior volume which offers the closest experience that most of us can have with the original text. Of course, images of the Codex Sinaiticus are available online at an outstanding web site. Still, nothing can compare with the actual experience of holding the printed page.
Of course, this work will be of interest to those who are interested in the early Christian Bible, as well as in Septuagint studies. But this huge volume (21.2 x 18.7 x 6.5 inches) is not only a reproduction of a central manuscript of Late Antiquity; Codex Sinaiticus is a key artifact in the history of Western book-making.
