1. Biblical.—That the vast Eainer collection contains a quantity of
valuable Coptic material still unpublished, has long been of common
knowledge, and students must congratulate themselves that Krall's efforts
to make this gradually available are being so successfully continued by
Wessely. Following on his editions of the Psalter and Fayyumic
fragments, he has now given us a miscellaneous volume,1 comprising a

Coptic passages, 12 are wholly new, 6 more partly so. It may be observed
that no. 33, which has strayed among the patristica, is simply Isaiah v,
11-27. Wessely has added a list of the variants from published bible
One of the finest Sa'idic MSS. in the British Museum must have been,
when complete, the papyrus codex (ca. 7th century), from the poor
remnants of which Sir Herbert Thompson has succeeded in transcribing
large portions of the Salomonic books and Ecclesiasticus.2 The new text
is of varying merit, but often at least equal to that of Lagarde's print.
The introduction contains an interesting description of the material
construction (' Faserung') of the volume.
Deiber prints3 passages from Sa'idic Jeremiah and Lamentations, most

Winstedt prints 17 Old Test, fragments (Sa'idic) from the British
Museum, some of which are new.4 One, from Hosea, is remarkable, as
