# Using the Comparetti facisimile

## Background

In 1901, Domenico Comparetti produced a 1:1 facsimile of the manuscript. In 2007, the HMT project took high-resolution photography of the manuscript, including some UV light shots for selected pages or regions of pages. The HMT project has also digitized the Comparetti facsimile, so that you compare the photography of the Venetus A as it was in 2007 with the evidence of Comparetti’s photography of the manuscript in 1901.
