Description:
Two lateral holes with tie cord. Edges colored red. Black powder rubbed into incised letters. Varnish applied to most folios, giving letters brown appearance. Stain from varnish on parts of f.kau results in making some of the letters difficult to read. Ff.ki and ki have in each case a section of the left side of the folio broken off, bu5t the separated sections have been carefully repaired by sewing on a sliver of palm leaf with white thread at the top and bottom of each folio at the break. The left side of f.ka has broken off and been lost. If a colophon is present, I cannot determine where it begins. Two title pages present, one for entire text, one for section here only. Script neat and not ornamental
