Old D.O. Acquisitions Catalogue (hardcopy, typed, for 1950-1967, p. 7 of “Microfilms”) has the following:

March 20, 1953
London. British Museum
Add. 36749 (Part containing early 10th c. letters, totalling 100 exp.)
(This was ordered by Mr. Laourdas through University Microfilms, Ann Arbor, Michigan, and later turned over to D.O. through Professor Friend.)

Add. 36749, fols. 134v-234r: some slight fading, but mostly quite legible. Α few pages blurry; most retaken as indicated above. Distortion at the top of some pages seems to be water-damage on the ms. itself.
