VMs: Re: compressed writing
My impression is that the location of the text is arranged by design. It
doesn't really seem to be crammed in on f9v. Interweaving the text within
and around the plant drawing seems in part to be by "artistic design" (there
is a certain appeal to seeing it written in that fashion). But more
importantly the paragraphs drawn on the herbal pages appear to be written as
shown for a specific purpose (though this could just as easily be pure
conjecture on my part). Lets say that I wouldn't be surprised in the least
if the first paragraph on the folios had similar content for all the plants,
and that the same would also apply to the second paragraph. The $64,000
question, of course, is just what type of information might be imparted. I
keep wondering about this. I would like to seem some sort of a comparison of
the first herbal paragraphs versus the second paragraphs to seem if the is
statistical significance and similarities comparing paragraph H1 to H2.
Might prove useful.
