Excerpt

The cost of publishing this volume as well as of the Facsimile volume accompanying it has been paid from the income of the Freer Research and Publication Fund.

The Papyrus of the Minor Prophets in the Freer Collection has been edited by Mr. Sanders, but for the opportunity to use unpublished material on the different Versions in Coptic he is under special obligation to Professor Schmidt. The editor is also indebted to Professor Rahlfs and the Septuaginta-Unternehmen in Göttingen for the permission to use the extensive apparatus gathered there, to Professor Lake and Harvard University for the loan of photographs of Septuagint manuscripts, to Mr. A. M. Todd of Kalamazoo for the loan of his copy of the Complutensian Polyglot, and to the Vatican Library, the Staatsbibliotek in Berlin, the Biblioteque Nationale, the Library of the Escurial, and the Royal Library in Turin.

The publication of the Berlin Papyrus of Genesis has been made by both editors, yet with such division of work that Mr. Schmidt takes the final responsibility for the history of the manuscript and for the reprint of the text in so far as it is preserved in the Papyrus, while Mr. Sanders assumes responsibility for the remainder of the Introduction, for the filling out of the lacunae in the text, and for the Notes. This is however only a division of responsibility and the work of neither editor should be considered confined to the field of his allotment.
