Exact for-sure title? Is it still in print? Publisher, etc.?

Exact Title: Manuscripts of the Greek Bible: An Indroduction to Palaeography, Bruce M.
Metzger, Oxford 47.95 (current CBD catalog).

This is a thin book (160 pages) with a *sample page* from each of the most important
manuscripts. The photographs are OK, better than those in the smaller books. The
accompanying text is classic Metzger, clear, concise and illuminating. I don't own the
book. I get anything I want for free through my local library.
