Scope and content

Manuscript on large-format loose sheets which is essentially a rewriting of pages 1-56 of the second part of MS-114 and thus the second reworking of part of the Big Typescript. It needs to be read with this volume as there are a number of references between the two manuscripts. f 38 also contains a reference to the missing ‘kleines format’
