Renowned nineteenth-century textual critic Frederick Scrivener presents sixty-three manuscripts of the Greek New Testament and other like documents in this volume. Of each of these, Scrivener provides a general account and estimate of their respective critical values, and then subjoins a comparison of the text of the chief of them with that of his own edition (Editio Major 1887) of Stephens' standard New Testament of 1550.
