Misc. Notes:

Original images: 300dpi, grayscale jpg2000 files approx. 3025 by 3900 pixels. Editing: converted to black and white tif files, de-skewed, re-sampled to 600dpi, and set uniform margins.
Odd issue with plate numbers. Title page appears to be from 1859/60 issue and shows plate numbers at bottom of 5334, 35, 9978, 79. Date-wise 9978/9 would correspond to 1859/60 but I can't figure out how 5334/35 and 5354 (on the score itself) would fit into any B&H date table.
