Far, far clearer and easier to make out than the negative version (WEST.JER.2.2), which it seems to have been made from, especially in its titles, erasures &c.; Much that is obscured beyond intelligibility in that film is obvious in this one.

218r provides only minimal difficulty. The long note on 220r is completely or nearly completely legible. Some pages slightly faint (ex. gr. 223r, 224v, 252r, 266r) but all legible.
