In this time, although considerable and encouraging progress has been made in the work of preparation, it has become evident that the examination of libraries to bring to light unknown or forgotten MSS., and the necessarily slow, careful and systematic collation of all the most important codices, will occupy more time and be more costly than was at first expected.

In the endeavour to obtain as accurately as possible the text of St. Jeromes Latin translation of the Bible (which is the end of the present Commission) it is obviously necessary to ascertain what the old Latin Texts were, upon which St. Jerome had to work. For this purpose one of the objects of the Commission, patiently pursued during the last two years has been to procure copies of all such texts already published, and to prepare others for the use of workers in this vast field of research. To this end, and also to throw light upon some of the problems, which confront those who are engaged in this branch of Scriptural studies, it has been determined to begin at once the publication of a series of Collectanea Biblica Latina: and a list of some of the studies and texts already in preparation will be found at the end of this Report.In the past two years much use has been made of the large photographic apparatus, which at the time of the last Report was being made for the Commission.

It was resolved to procure the best possible apparatus- and the results have been even better than was anticipated.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
