The Jews made use of the Septuagint long before the Christian Era, and in the time of Christ it was recognised as a legitimate text, and was employed in Palestine even by the rabbis. The Apostles and Evangelists utilised it also and borrowed Old Testament citations from it, especially in regard to the prophecies. The Fathers and the other ecclesiastical writers of the early Church drew upon it, either directly, as in the case of the Greek Fathers, or indirectly, like the Latin Fathers and writers and others who employed Latin, Syriac, Ethiopian, Arabic and Gothic versions. It was held in high esteem by all, some even believed it inspired. Consequently, a knowledge of the Septuagint helps to a perfect understanding of these literatures.

The book is illuminated and features a relatively large typeface, making its reading a pleasure.

The text is the one prepared by Alfred Rahlfs, modified by the Church of Greece to take advantage of forms being in use in the Greek liturgical tradition, a tradition of the highest authority, coming through Byzantium and being alive even now. You may like to check this edition even if you already have the Septuagint in some other form.
