Just a note: The dates listed above are re-print dates. The volumes were
originally published in, respectively, 1914 and 1905.

Two other books (with a somewhat more text-critical view) that I would add
to this list are:

F.G. Kenyon _The Text of the Greek Bible_, 3rd ed w/ A. W. Adams; pub by
Duckworth, 1975.

E. Tov, _The Text-Critical use of the Septuagint in Biblical Research_;
Simor Ltd., 1981.
