Description:
Two lateral holes with tie cord. Black powder, now somewhat faint against the dark color of the palm leaves, rubbed into incised letters. Varnish has been applied over some lines or very small sections of text in very few places, giving these sections of text a brown appearance. jBottom of first folio (f.ka) is slightly chipped away destroying some text on both sides of the folio, though the text can still be made out from the parts of the lettrers remaining. Hole in leaf on right side of f.na interferes with a bit of text. The cut of f.na is such that the bottom line of the recto and the top line of ;the verso have been indented, since there was not enough space to write the letters at the beginning of the line. Final colophon appears present. The script is neither florid nor very neat, but rather gives the impression of being very ordinary.
