EMMA 1870 page scan dups?

I'm filling in data on tunes for "And must this body die?", and am trying to picture why or how the Page Scans have these two seemingly identical duplicate scans of EMMA from The Palm.


There are two tunes called EMMA in "The Palm" for "And must this body die" one by C. M. Scoville and one by C. M. Wyman; so they are numbered 150a and 150b.

I know why there are two EMMAs on the big page. The question I have is why the page appears twice, identically among the hymnals scanned. Both have the same hymnal ID number and page number and appear to be otherwise identical. See the arrows and numbers I added to this scan.

Because there are two different tunes for the text, there are two instances of the text in the hymnal - 150a and 150b. If there is an available page scan for an instance, it is displayed - two instances in a hymnal means two page scans from the hymnal.

Like duh ;-)
I wasted a lot of time worrying over that one. Next...
