Footnotes

1 i.e. "4 mains" = four-handed.

2 i.e., the second moiety of the honorarium for vol. I.

3 141 x 2 = 282 Kr. 282 ÷ 6 (Kr.) = 47; 47 x 2 = 94 plates. The price, as stated in OC 52/391, is thus 6 Kronen per double-plate: 94 ÷ 2 = 47; 47 x 6 = 282 ÷ 2 = 141 (half-honorarium).

4 Note that the typewriter does have "ä" on its typebar, despite that fact that the typist more often types "ae".
