                                        <p>On fol. <locus>1r</locus>, the top right-hand corner is lighter
                                            and shows remnants of some text (erased?). A small slip is glued onto that corner

                                            close to the spine. The third hole from the top (the

                                            little further away from the spine) show traces of red.</p>

                                        <p>The edges are very dirty and on some of them, red colouring is evident (see decoDesc). On
