O10 (p. 307) of Volume III is shaved, but the text is legible. Two leaves of signature Q (Q5 and Q6) from Volume VII have been accidentally bound in between R1 and R2 of Volume VIII, so that signature Q in Volume VII should properly be ten leaves, though it appears to be eight. The text is complete.
