Dublinii : ex Ædibus Academicis, excudebat R.E. Mercier, 1801.
The notable Dublin palimpsest (Z) preserves 295 verses of St. Matthew's gospel, in twenty-two fragments. They were discovered in 1787 by John Barrett (1753-1821), senior fellow of Trinity College Dublin, and have been assigned to the sixth or even to the fifth century.
An Appendix contains a collation of Codex Montfortianus, a cursive MS. of the fiftheenth or sixteenth century, which has historical interest, since it was the excuse for Erasmus' admission of the comma Johanneum into his third edition.
Prefixed is the Prolegomena. The text represented by 64 quasi-facsimile tables, with an transcript (supplied with breathings and accents), and variæ lectiones on the opposite pages. Text followed by Collatio Codicis Montfortiani (with Wettstein's Greek Testament of 1751-52)
Physical description: 52 p., 32 leaves, 35 (1) p. : 64 ill., facsim. ; 4to in twos.
