Unknown number of pieces, sure.  But I'm not talking about recreating
the *original* first copy or master volume.  I'm just talking about
assembling all the pieces we have in the same box, so to speak. 
Taking all of the text and illustrations we *do* have from the
currently extant manuscripts, and arranging it all with same/similar
bits together.

-- Dahrien, also not a scholarly historian or historical scholar  =)
(hysterical maybe, but not historical ;> )
