This concern is theUniversity Press, whose sole business for centuries has been the printing of Bibles. The place was established some fifty years after the German Guttenberg invented mov able type, and the firtt book turned out bears tho date 1 ICS, but this was a mistake by ten years ; it should have been 1478. For nearly 100 years the Oxford Press printed; books of all kinds, and then, towards the 'end of the sixteenth century, it began the printing of Bibles. From that time to tho present the presses have been turning out Bibles and Testaments and nothing else. It may be of interest to know the sources of the Bible as it appears to day. In tho first place the making of the Bible did not begin in its modern aspect until the middle of tho fourth century after Christ. The Bible is based upon four great manuscripts. One of them, the Codex Alexandrinns, now in the British Museum ; the Codex Vaticanus, now in the Vatican, and the Codex Smaiticus and the Codex TPm-w mi f.Awh of iVienn in rf im. b&n antiquity: -: -The Codex Alexandrinusin the Brit ish Museum is at least 1500 years old, and it is the most priceless object in the vast collection of that famous in stitution.
