An Anniversary Collection volume
"The core of Typology of the Early Codex is the consolidated list of codices consulted, which is more or less a complete list of all the surviving codices and fragments published up to November 1973 (with the exclusion of certain important categories, e.g., the majority of Latin codices already listed by E. A. Lowe in Codices Latini Antiquiores). This provides a bridge between codices which were found below ground, the domain of papyrologists, and those which have survived above."—The Classical Review
Sir Eric G, Turner (1911-1983) was an English papyrologist and classicist.
