Yes, that's it. Sorry, I refer to them as the same
since they are all together on one side of the vellum
-it is all shot as one "page" by Beinecke.

Yep, that's a next great step - will do. I'll also dig
around for tarot, alchemic and grotesque imagery and
symbolism and also Galenic medicine (as D'Imperio

Yes, it's confusing. I just picked through Rene's
description of the folios and the Beinecke images to
figure it out:


and by looking at the images, you can finally figure
out how it is pieced together. The three "pages" (the
male circle - f85r2, the female circle - f86v4 and a
large page of text - f86v6) are all on the same side
of the vellum next to each other on the back of the
top half of the rosette's page.
