Just what the title says: the text of Codex Sinaiticus (a Greek Bible produced in the mid-300's) compared with the New Testament base-text of the KJV. The sheer quantity of the differences is impressive, but no less so is the content of some of them.
In Scrivener's introduction, he describes various features of Codex Sinaiticus (such as the unique similarity between some of its marginalia in Acts to the marginalia in Acts in Codex Vaticanus), repeated segments of text, unusual and rare readings, and more, which abundantly refutes the notion (still sadly spread by some, mainly KJV-Onlyists) that the manuscript was made in the early 1800's.
