The third volume of the Koptisches Sammelbuch (hereafter KSB) appeared only two years after the second (2004), while the first volume was published in 1993. The accelerated pace of publication doubles the pleasure of receiving this indispensable tool for the study of Coptic documents. 1690 individual texts now appear on the pages of this series, a quasi-gold mine of every type of Coptic documentary text. As the editor mentions in the preface, there is already material selected for another volume, and to this we look forward.
