Thanks to Wieland Willker for pointing out that a key photofacsimile edition of the New Testament portions of Codex Vaticanus, edited by Carlo M. Martini and initially published in 1968, is available for download here. (The edition includes the fifteenth-century additions which restored the formerly lost conclusion of the Letter to the Hebrews and the Book of Revelation, cataloged separately by Nestle-Aland under the designation Minuscule 1957.) Be warned: the complete file is approximately 200 MB, and the resolution of the images is not especially high. Still, given the widespread recognition of this manuscript as the most significant individual witness to the text of the Greek New Testament, it’s well worth cramming into a corner of your internal or external hard drive. Check it out!
