Ginsburg Pentateuch TIF scans
The Major BFBS Edition of the Hebrew Bible, also known as C.D. Ginsburg's Massoretico-Critical Edition of the Hebrew Bible, is very hard to come across. I've made TIF scans of the Pentateuch available online. These scans were made almost a decade ago from my printed set (which was destroyed during the process). This particular set was printed in 1926 in Germany by the British & Foreign Bible Society. Here is a link:
The .zip file is a bit over 30 megabytes but will grow to a bit over 180 megabytes in size. In the zip archive I have placed 6 folders, as the scanning process for this book was broken into 6 parts years ago. The file names in each of these sets are broken into "even" and "odd" because they were being printed on a non-duplexing laser printer. After you download the zip archive, you can rename them whatever your heart desires.
I have the complete set of 4 volumes here for this work. I'd *LOVE* to see this as a built-in Hebrew Bible study source in BibleWorks at some juncture. No other Bible software would have it. Perhaps translating Ginsburg's copious notes into English would be the icing on the cake.
At any rate, please enjoy this work. It is far out of copyright and years ago I contacted the British and Foreign Bible Society to make sure of it but have had it milling about for eons.
There is also a "lesser" version of this work available that was printed in the first decade of the 1900s. This one is the one that Geden and Kilgour wrote their Intro for and also the one that Ginsburg himself wrote his own large introduction for. I have those here as well.
Ginsburg Writings TIF scans
Here's a link to the contents of the second volume in Ginsburg's work with the Hebrew Bible:
This file is about 71 megabytes in size and will expand to 523 megabytes. The scans are all uncompressed TIF files. The file naming system that was used during the scanning of this volume is a lot more obfuscated at first look-see than the Pentateuch scans are, but I'm sure that you can figure it out. (HINT: There are page numbers.) Files are all 1724x2670 resolution at 300x300 ppi.
No copyright issues. Here it is, the volume Writings from C.D. Ginsburg's Massoretico-Critical Edition of the Hebrew Bible.
I would really like to get the ginsburg scans, but every link in this thread is dead. Perhaps they have not been downloaded for too long. Can you please re-upload them at your convenience?
Thanks for your kind help.

Thanks, Mike, for your labor of love. Please take your time.

This one is rather clean in it's file structure, such as the Pentateuch file set was. There are 9 folders in the zip archive and each folder has even and odd pages to facilitate printing on a printer than only cooks one side at a time. The scans are all uncompressed TIFs. The zip download is about 42 megs in size and will decompress to close to 250 megabytes. Again, absolutely no copyright issues with this work.
Ginsburg Later Prophets TIF scans
Here's the link to the Later Prophets volume of C.D. Ginsburg's Massoretico-Critical Edition of the Hebrew Bible:
You're on your own with the files in this set.
Like the others, these are uncompressed TIF files. The download zip archive is 41 megs or so in size and it'll explode to consume 243 megs of disk space.
This concludes the Massoretico-Critical Edition of the Hebrew Bible. I have other related works that I'll try to make available as well.
Enjoy, and I'm real happy to be able to share this rare work with you all here.
Geden & Kilgour's Introduction
Here is a link to download the PDF file of Geden & Kilgour's Introduction to the Ginsburg Edition of the Hebrew Old Testament. It was printed in 1928 by the British & Foreign Bible Society. The file size is 5 megabytes.
Fantastic! Thanks for this great resource. The scans of the text are very good quality.
