The oldest complete Hebrew Bible in the world is the Leningrad Codex. Dating to 1009 C.E., the Codex stands as the single most important extant manuscript for establishing the text of the Hebrew Bible and is the basis for virtually all critical editions of the Hebrew Bible.
The Leningrad Codex is now available in a beautiful facsimile edition copublished with E. J. Brill (due to various production difficulties, the book has come out later than originally projected). This scholar's edition of the Leningrad Codex features a high-quality 11" x 13" hardcover format that includes 966 black-and-white photographs and sixteen full-color, illuminated carpet pages that capture in precise detail the Codex's lovely medieval artwork.
