                                        the quire boundaries.</catchwords>
                                    <condition><p>The leaves are dirty with many stains.</p> 
                                        <p>Especially close to the spine, the paper is fragile and has been repaired.</p>
                                        <p>There is a lacuna in between fols. <locus>4v</locus> and <locus>7r</locus>, because 
                                            one bifolium is missing. Now, there is a blank bifolium in its place, in 
                                            order to indicate the lacuna.</p>
                                        <p>There are holes from overcast stitches in the inner margins of the leaves. On the last leaves,
                                        there are partially two sets of stitching holes.</p>
                                        <p>In the third hole from the 
                                        top and the second from the bottom edge, there are traces of red visible. 
                                       <!-- From the lower hole with red traces to the fore-edge, the leaves measure 180 mm.--></p>
                                    <p>The top margins have been trimmed, so that some text was partly
                                    cut off. This trimming, however, was done before the edges were coloured red (see decoration).</p>
                                   <p> Fol. <locus>30v</locus>, the last page, shows a larger repair on the fore-edge, a red
                                        stain, and lines from folding or dry ruling.</p>
                                        <p>The first page, <locus>1r</locus>, shows a line of red dots in the outer 
                                        margin close to the text.
                                        The stitching holes on this leaf are rather big, but single holes except for
                                        the second hole from top which is a double hole with the larger hole being more
                                        or less inline with the others
                                        and a smaller hole further away from the spine.</p>
                                        <p>There is a hole caused by damage in the lower inner corner of all leaves. 
                                        In the first leaf, this damage has the shape of two oblong holes, forming a 
                                        5 mm long slightly bended line. In the later leaves, the damage resembles more a circular hole.</p>
                                        <p>Fols. <locus>4-7</locus> are narrower than the other leaves, since they were not bound in straight.
                                        From an old glueing line it is moreover visible that they were glued into the 
                                        quire, i.e. onto fols. <locus>3v</locus> and <locus>8r</locus>, possibly because 
                                        they had become loose. This is also why 
                                        the innermost bifolium may have gone missing. <note>The same kind of mis-alignement 
                                        occurred in <ref>AM 148 fol.</ref> (fol. <locus>5+6</locus>).</note></p>
