Besides releasing page-views of images from 57 continuous-text Greek New Testament manuscripts, the National Library of France (Bibliothèque nationale de France) has made available page-views of 21 Greek lectionaries at the Gallica website. The list here gives the Gregory-Aland identification-number, with the catalogue-number in parentheses. For some lectionaries, the affinity of the text (according to data provided at the Center for the Study and Preservation of the Majority Text) is provided within brackets.

In addition, a Greek Gospels-manuscript which was not mentioned in the earlier list of Greek manuscripts at Gallica should be included. Its catalog-number is MS 1.916 at the National and University Library of Strasbourg, but I have not tracked down its Gregory-Aland identification-number. Its full-color page-views include the opening pages of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Another lectionary is listed only as National and University Library of Strasbourg MS 1.914.
Many manuscripts, while not lectionaries, contain lection-lists and calendars of lections. For example, minuscule 9 – Greek 82 at Gallica/BnF (considered to be the manuscript cited by Stephanus as ιβʹ) – not only contains the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, but also features an index of lections.
Excellent work James. Are you aware of anyone having bothered to produce an interlinear version, or similar, to date? Clearly there is a big divide between this work and, say, Coptic Thomas, let alone the NT canon.
