Seller: biblio87 (193) 99%, Location: Stafford, Virginia, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 303288255948 P66 Manuscript Language : Greek Date : AD 200 (Victor Martin) - AD 100-150 (Herbert Hunger) - "early or middle fourth century" (Brent Nongbri) Price: $99.99 The P66 manuscript was found in 1952 at Jabal Abu Mana near Dishna (Egypt) The manuscript contains John 1:1-6:11, 6:35b-14:26, 29-30; 15:2-26; 16:2-4, 6-7; 16:10-20:20, 22-23; 20:25-21:9, 12, 17. It is one of the oldest well-preserved New Testament manuscripts known to exist. The date is somewhat debatable. Its original editor assigned the codex to the early third century, or around AD 200, on the basis of the style of handwriting in the codex. Herbert Hunger later claimed that the handwriting should be dated to an earlier period in the middle or early part of the second century. More recently, Brent Nongbri has produced a broader study of the codex and argued that when one takes into consideration the format, construction techniques, and provenance of the codex along with the handwriting, it is more reasonable to conclude that the codex was produced "in the early or middle part of the fourth century." Reproduction Details: The hardcover books are made with two pieces of real wood on the inside. The leather is a 2 oz cowhide, from a small supplier in New York state. The Glue we use to attach the leather to the wood is made at our facility, and is a period correct wheat glue. The pages are pre-creased to add flexibility. Along the spine, we use a modern perfect binding, with modern glue, to make the binding last longer. Then we each signature is sewn into the book block. We also add three layers of mull cloth to the outside of the perfect binding, drying in between each layer, a traditional way to make the binding stiff, strong, and resilient.
