1519 ERASMUS FACSIMILE and Byzantine

Hello, I would like to purchase a facsimile of the Erasmus Greek and Latin N.T. What is the text form Erasmus used? Are there spaces between words? I am also interested in a Byzantine facsimile. But which? I don't want anything Wescott and Hort or Tischendorf or Sainaticus or Vaticanus. Any recommendations? The only obstacle here is cost.

Thank you!

I have been looking up the stories of Roman history before I read them, helping improve my understanding. However it also spoils what I am reading. Should I continue this practice?

Harry Potter In Ancient Greek

I am trying to read "Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone" in Ancient Greek and I came across a sentence that confused me. The Sentence is:

"Ἆρ´ οὐκ ἐφαντάσθην πάντα, ἔφη, ἐψευσμένος τι τῷ δοκοῦντι;"

I can guess at the meaning which I assume is "Don't all things seem fantastical, he said, to the one who assumes falsely".

The part I don't understand is the "ἐψευσμένος τι τῷ δοκοῦντι". I don't understand why "ἐψευσμένος" is ...

Latin word gravaris question

I know it is second person present passive--you are burdened, weighted down and so forth; the story I am translating has a footnote which suggests translating this as "you are unwilling" and interestingly enough the translation does sound better but this is not a deponent verb so I do not see why the passive form is used.

The Young Pope

This is a wonderfully filmed series. There is a bit of Church Latin (various rites and prayers), Italian, and Spanish. The best parts by far, however, are the cinematography and costuming. The shots of the Vatican are like a documentary, with the Pope (Jude Law) dressed in full medieval regalia. At the beginning I assumed that the story was going in the direction of Habemus Papam, but it didn't turn out like that at all.
