Fully agreed.

Ruysschaert writes that many, but not all MSS
from the collection have such notes attached.
In some cases, only fragments of them are visible.
All (?) such notes from the MSS bought by
Voynich are now in the boxes kept at Yale.
I remember seeing several, but I don't remember
seeing the one for the Voynich MS itself.
The Carteggio of Kircher's correspondence (14
volumes) now back in the Gregorian University,
only had one such note, attached to the
volume called APUG 557.
