37r bad splotch.
0v-2r, 8v/9r, 16v-20r, 32v-36r, 55v-74r photographed with book slightly open, so gutter and inner margins obscured.
16v/17r, 25r, 32v, 39v, 56r slightly faded but mostly legible.
82v/83r has thin diagonal streak running through most of the two pages
93v/94r as with 55v-74r, but more so.
160v faint.
175r narrowish splotch affecting six lines.
