All eleven letters were fair-copied by Murua from original documents that are no longer extant. Next are four documents (folios 8-11), all issued in Madrid in 1615 and 1616. They carry different watermarks from the rest of the manuscript (see fig. 13). Unlike nearly all of the other pages in the Getty manuscript, these pages are not framed. 8o The remaining front matter is distributed as follows: a framed page with no text (folio 12) closes quire 2, and quire 3 comprises a hand-colored coat of arms of the Inca kings (folio 13, with the GM watermark, and hence belonging to Murua's original paper stock), a prologue addressed to crown prince Philip (later Philip IV) (folio 14), and a prologue to the reader (folio 15).

In all four cases, the detached folio was instead inserted as a new folio, with the illustration appearing as its recto, so that a blank eventually had to be pasted over the canceled text on its verso. As a result, the images do not face the chapters they were meant to face, the confusing "modo de caminar" captions are not obscured, and the subsequent chapters face blanks, rather than illustrations. The final undesirable consequence was that in two instances, the Galvin texts were canceled with strokes that blotted onto the initial page of the next chapter in the Getty manuscript.
