Re: Folio 14 - The 'map' pages.
Hi Jim & ALL :-)
The 3x3 ~Folding~ and the 9-disk (areas) is what "ES" was trying
to impart as the "proper" way to fold and record the folding via
The "columns". Yes, I know it may sound ~crazy~ but check out
www.diac.com/~ekwall2/voynich.shtml ->> folding 101
Ignore the ~Ascii~ input into each of the 9 areas.
But there is definite Start.Fold 1-9 End Fold.
Best to you & yours

... with binding gutter beteen v3 and r1.
Starting from the completely unfolded 9-disk thing in front of you,
here is how you fold it up: first, along the horizontal crease.
Then along the crease separating r3 from r4. At this stage you
face what looks like an ordinary book opening, with 85r2 (or
85/85r2 as we call it) on the left of the binding gutter and 86v5
(that is, 85/86v5) on the right facing up. But there are really 2
thicknesses of vellum on the left and 4 on the right. Turn over
the 4-fold thick page on the right, and you see 86v3, the last
visible page of the quire when in its folded up position. No
I found it very helpful to take a sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 paper
and fold it up this way, writing the page numbers on it and
so on, making a little mockup of gathering 14. (Start with
the sheet held the long way.) (I call mine "Voynichula".)
