I've been away for a few days, and I don't know if anyone has answered this.  Here is all that I have been able to find regarding any transcription of Vaticanus.

For the story of the early collations, and the first, notoriously inaccurate, full transcription by Mai, see Kenyon (1912: 77–79). A photographic reprint of the whole manuscript was made in 1889–90. A reprint of the NT alone was made in 1968, for presentation to the more distinguished of those attending the Second Vatican Council.

All in the group

I am sitting here looking a advertisement for a Interlinear Old Testament LXX. The text is said to be from the 1587 edition of the Vatican manuscript Codex B.

My question to the group, is this a reliable work and can it be trusted in what I would say, most cases?

Thank you for any and all input.
