The sample page is the final page of the manuscript, which ends without a colophon.

Project Notes
Lines entered by BM.

All images entered. Further data and lines to be added by BM.

No details as yet (BS list). Images acquired by Afsaneh in Feb. 2009 and entered directly: NB no folio numbers at present.

Break-lines to be checked by BM or MN.

Presumably these are page numbers not folio numbers; either way, if the number exceeds 1000, all the pages entered should be 4-digit numbers. I have started to do this. NB also that unfortunately the copyright wording needs to be changed; I have also started to do this!

I assume also that the absence of pictures for most of the ms. means that the illustrations were never completed.
