The microfilm is of the entire ms.

The catalogue calls the  ms. a "κῶδεξ βασιλικός" and it is indeed wonderfully ornate.  

The beginning of each homily is in majuscule letters surrounded by a beautiful decorative border.  A real treasure.

f.1v is a "πίναξ ἀκριβής" of the contents of the ms. but the image is rather dim.
f. 145v-146v is difficult to read.
f. 152v is obscured
f. 154r-155r are very difficult to read.
f. 155v-156r are missing.
f. 174r very blurry.

Pinakes has a full and useful entry on the ms. including two items of bibliography.
