A long strip runs through the tops of the early images, often affecting legibility. The photos are mostly very clear, but the lower outside corners are sometimes exceptions (ex. gr. 26v/27r). Gutters often obscured.

361r badly blurred but then photographed again. On a couple pages a very small amount of redox (tiny colored dots).
