19 folios: since the two initial folios are part of the binding, we identify them as guard-leaves to differentiate them from the remaining folios. The latter are paginated in Arabic numerals: numbering starts at 2 on the verso of the fifth folio, and ends at 28 on the verso of folio 18; folio 19 is left unnumbered.
6 gatherings: I2 (fg. 1r-2v); II2 (fols. 001r-002v); III4 (fol. 003r-p.00a8); IV4 (pp. 00a9-a16); V4 (pp. 0a17-a24); VI2 (pp. 0a25-a28).
