Public Notes
The ms. is paginated (i.e. page numbers rather than folio numbers) through to p. 365 of Book III. Thereafter the page numbers have been estimated by Ch.M. until pagination is carried out. References to pages in the ms. relate to the existing pagination (bk. I, II, III), etc.
Project Notes
First investigation by ChM, 18 Nov. 2008, thanks to list prepared by Kishwar Rizvi. NB colophon is read by Library as 1264, needs checking.

Search to be completed and notes to be written up still.
