Summary

"Ego dixi in dimidio.../...in amaritudine animae meae. " (latin)

On the verso side of the leaf you will notice that there is tape on the upper right edge of the page.  This is from Otto Ege and is referred to as Ege tape.  You will also note that on this side there is a crinkly area in the vellum and it looks as though it was wet and then dried at one point.  Other than that the pages are in good shape.

you can see that this was once one of Ege’s mounted leaves as there is some Ege tape on the verso of this leaf.  On the left side of the verso you can see that the paper looks like it was wet at some point and dried a bit crinkly.  I do not see any hols in the inside edges for binding purposes and the edges are in fair shape no rips or tears.
