Washington, D.C.
Dumbarton Oaks

Georgian MS, 11th cent.
Menaion (Dec., Jan., Feb.)

D.O. Acc. 52.1

4 positive film copies.

Film contains folios 2r-377v.

An order-form constituting the first frame of the film is dated 17th January, 1961 and the order is for (typed) "Georgian ms. D.O. 53.60.1 (377 folios, recto and verso)" and (handwritten) "Photo – 250 rec start 251 rec". In the column "Prints" is typed "no prints".

Difficult to say what " Photo – 250 rec start 251 rec " means. The first of three section of film ends with 42r and the second with 295r, but the all three are spliced together with no folios lost.

The film is very clear and legible throughout. Some very slight difficulties appear to be minor faults in the manuscript itself (as at fols. 46-48 and 186).
