Observations about the quality of the images:

The reproduction is both negative and positive.

pp. 384-385 and 390-391 are repeated several times.  Often a shot of the two pages together is followed by larger images of the individual pages.

pp. 238-9 repeated twice.

pp. 294, the page is not entirely legible due to bad processing.

pp. 300-5 are poorly legible at the top due to bad processing or perhaps damage to the ms.
