VMs: Another INDEX, and: Language on 1006106

Dear all,

to know which picture is which folio, an initial
index to the Bienecke scanes is presented here:


This should evolve into something nicer eventually
but should be helpful right now.
Note that 4 pages were not scanned (including
our beloved Pleiades page :-( ) and 2 pages 
could not be photographed completely due
to the state of the MS (Cancer and Leo).

I always found it somewhat dismaying that we can't
even properly decipher the plain text in the MS

Cheers, Rene
