    This famous ms., known as Codex Bezæ or D, assigned to the sixth century, and containing the Gospels and Acts in Greek and Latin, was presented by Théodore de Bèze to the University of Cambridge in 1581. He had obtained it after the sack of the monastery of St. Irenæus at Lyons in 1562, and used it himself to some extent in his own editions. Stephanus had already given many of its peculiar readings in his folio edition of 1550. Some hasve identified D with the 'antiquissimus codex Græcus' produced in 1546 at the Council of Trent.
    At a later date the ms. was collated by Patrick Young, and again by Archbishop Ussher (for Walton's Polyglot), and by Mill, Wettstein, Bentley, and John Dickinson. Finally the university entrusted the reproduction of the entire text to Thomas Kipling, afterwards dean of Peterborough.
    The transcript is fairly correct, but the preface and notes possess little value. The text in quasi-facsimile, Greek and Latin, on opposite pages, followed by Notæ in locos a librario allisque emendatos. Paged continuously.
