Kenyon's edition of the biblical(ish) Chester Beatty papyri

VARIANT READINGS: Kenyon’s Editions of the Chester Beatty Biblical Papyri Online (Brent Nongbri). The online edition makes available valuable photos of the biblical and Enochic manuscripts at the Chester Beatty Library. The edition was published in 1933, so the photos are of the manuscripts when they were nearly a century younger than today.

This is part of the Library's larger digitization project. The AWOL Blog has more on this with additional links: Chester Beatty Library Collection Catalogues for Download: Western Collections. And I noted another relevant post at Variant Readings earlier this week.
