Re: Re: VMs: Beinecke & MrSID...
is saves however as *.jpg. How can I dowmload it in MSID format?
Also, this picture brings up one question: if it is the front cover, is it he hard cover? Is there the back cover? Baresch talks in his letter about a "codex", the word presumably used mainly for a book. Still, we know that the VM is in loose folios and they do not show - correct me if I am wrong - any tyraces of being bound together. Had the VM hard covers at any time?
