Project Notes
This entry was made by Amin Mahdavi. Possibly incomplete - due to deletions elsewhere in the DB. This MS is perhaps dispersed further and not all in 'Lyons'. As the MS has now been reassembled digitally, and in print (esp. ed. Canby, Metropolitan Museum), this whole section could be duplicated elsewhere.
