Up on contacting the library, Katharina Kaska informed that the manuscript is packed for conservation purposes and should not be opened due to its poor condition. It is about a 10cm high book block. Photography or use are unfortunately entirely excluded. At the moment there are no plans to restore these or other birch bark manuscripts.
