A few slightly faded patches here and there (ex. gr. 39v, 40v), but legible (these may be the ms. itself).

54v Marginal note difficult to read.

Between 118v-220r there is a stark diminution in the quality of the photographs, which from 220v resumes as abruptly as it fell. Much of the obscure section can be made out well enough in the dark, or could, at the least, be checked against an edition, but some of it also is extremely obscure.

223r, 324v/325r, 326v/327r, 328v/329r, 330v/331r, 334v, 339v/340r, 252r-289r obscured in photographs to varying degrees; some still legible, others not.

Although this film is very good in many places, the positive version (WEST.JER.2.3) is far superior and more legible.
