                                        Since fol. 1r is very dirty, it is likely that it was at the beginning of this quire and thus a singleton leaf (see condition).</note></item>

                                                The bifolium 21+22 has been repaired, but may be an original 
                                            bifolium according to the watermark. The final leaves of this quire are not preserved.</note></item>

                                        The text, however, is not upside down. That means it is likely that fol. <locus>1</locus> 
                                                was a singleton from the beginning (see collation: quire I).</note></p>

                                    is a narrow slip (35 mm wide) bound in front of the leaf. This slip used to be pasted onto the margin of 
                                    fol. <locus from="20r" to="20r">20r</locus>,
                                        which is in bad condition. Since fol. <locus from="21r" to="21r">21r</locus> also shows traces of old glue that match the traces on
                                            fol. <locus from="19v" to="19v">19v</locus>, this indicates that these two leaves maz have been glued together at some point. Fol.
