	As a non-specialist in paleography or codicology I would benefit
very much from some discussions of criteria by which one determines an
autograph from a copy. I know that Golb makes much of this distinction in
his recent book, but he doesn't really discuss criteria insofar as these
may apply to literary rather than to administrative documents.
