Re: Re: VMs: Beinecke & MrSID...

Hello Nick,

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?
