Metzger's work, although starting to get a bit old itself, is longer and more modern but largely agrees with Lake's viewpoint.

Much of New Testament Textual Criticism is about minuscule manuscripts. So maybe it makes sense to talk about them in a minuscule book.

That's really just about all there is to say about this book: It's tiny. The print is small, but mostly it's thin and uses a small page size. There simply isn't room to say a lot in such a confined space. What it does say is perfectly good and useful -- although now very dated, since the book is old. But textual criticism is a very large field, and there just isn't room to give much of an introduction in a book this size. If you simply want to know what the field is about, this is more readable than some. If you want to actually study textual criticism, you'll need something much, much longer. ( )

Quite basic introduction to the New Testament text. It is a critical edition of the work that informs basic textual criticism.
