I believe the Center for New Testament Restoration's manuscripts pages list all Greek manuscripts before 400 AD, in a very convenient form.

You'll find a list of Greek language manuscripts by name, number, date, type and content at http://www.laparola.net/greco/manoscritti.php

What i am trying to accomplish is this,

I am aware of 8 possibly 9 manuscripts that contain 1 John 5:7 the comma Johaneum, four of which contain them in the margins and the others being quite late. I am just curious how many copies of 1 john chapter 5 that we have do these 9 represent 50% of all greek manuscripts available or are they a mere trifle of what we have in greek?

thanks

I think you're basically right. See this article.

I don't have the Edito Critica Major for 1 John on hand, but if I recall correctly there are several hundred Greek manuscripts of this epistle. Of course, textual criticism is about a lot more than counting up the manuscripts.

You may be interesting in joining the Text Criticism forum over on Yahoo groups. This is the type of questions that are discussed in this discipline.

For a full discussion of the issue and listing of evidence current at the time, Raymond Brown's commentary in the Anchor Bible Series is one of the better and more accessible in English.
