For discussion of the five manuscript hands, see Mediaeval Greek Bookhands, nos. 58-62 and the accompanying plates (of fols. 82r, 107r, 244r, 452v and 505v).

For further bibliography, see No. 27 in Greek Manuscripts in the Bodleian Library (anno 1966; see Bibliography – also that volume's Plate no. IX for an image from fol. 190r) and at the bottom of the Πίνακες entry.

Bodley's website (see "Images" in Online Resources) has high-quality photographs of apparantly the whole of this precious codex, though at the time of this writing it's arranged in a very peculiar way that makes it difficult to find a given page.
