Leaves - correspond to leaves - in c. 1, except that there is no additional title leaf, and the 8 plates numbered at lower left C.1-C.8 are wanting. Leaves - of c. 2 are hand numbered 1-40 in brown ink at the upper right-hand corner of the sheet. The numbers 15-22 that presumably appeared on plates numbered C.1-C.8 of course are not present.
