* Note: The average page size and amount of text on a page varies by collection so the data is not comparable across columns, except that the data for the Combined Bka’ ’gyur and Bstan ’gyur is stated in equivalent number of Peking pages, thus it can be compared with the data for the Peking Bka’ ’gyur and Bstan ’gyur.

* 1 page = 1 side of a 2-sided folio
