Public Notes
Two consecutive folios of the so-called 'Big Head' Shahnama, providing a double-page painting. Note that they are numbered the wrong way round - in the narrative, 669.2 comes before 669.1, and this is reflected in the folio nos. they have been assigned (pending identification of the true folio numbers).
Project Notes
Add also to Dispersed section. check no. of lines per page.
