David Harris/Ben-Zvi Institute in the Shrine of the Book

The Aleppo Codex was considered the oldest (950 C.E.), most accurate and complete Masoretic manuscript until a third of it was burned and destroyed in a 1947 anti-Jewish uprising in Syria. A surviving three-column page shows burn damage on the bottom right. The critical edition of the Hebrew University Bible Project is based on the Aleppo Codex.
