Notice concerning page numbering

Technical programming considerations have made it necessary to adapt the numbering system of the "Venetian style" double entry bookkeeping, which attributes the same number to left and right hand entries of the open pages, to the system used for all the other sources in this edition, with recto and verso numeration of each folio. As a result, the entries, regularly cited by the scribe with the number assigned to the right hand folio as referring to both facing pages, are identified in the digital edition with the number of the first verso page, causing a slippage of one unit between the original and modern citation. For example, a scribal reference to c. 10 corresponds to the acts cited in the edition on cc. 9v-10.
