SL228 is described in the Sotheby catalogue as 'nearly 700 pp.', presumably meaning written sides rather than leaves. Two sections from this were transferred to Yahuda Var. 1 Ms. 1. The Yahuda listing states: 'Many leaves have been taken out and [sic] as they belong to Lot 227 [i.e. Yahuda Var. 1 Ms. 1] and 263 [now Babson Ms. 434]'. On 24 May 1949 Yahuda told the London dealer Heinrich Eisemann 'You will notice that lot 228 has 607 pages (instead of 700) because many leaves belonged to other lots', adding that he had also removed 'the leaves erroneously incorporated in this lot'. He was hoping to sell the item for $3,000, but evidently without success, and must subsequently have removed more sheets.
