_ (the underscore) is the placeholder for exactly one character.
% (the percent sign) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character.
%% (two percent signs) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character, but not for blank space (so that a search ends at word boundaries).

At the beginning and at the end, these placeholders are superfluous.

‘Georgii Trapezuntii ad libros Magnae Ptholomaei compositionis introductio. Capitulum primum de divisione omnis circuli et praecipue zodaici (!). Quoniam libros Ptholomaei de motibus coelestium, quibus nescio an quicquam altius ac rationis et scientiae via certius inveniri aut fingi possit ex Graeca lingua in Latinam vertimus… (14v) Expositio Magnae compositionis Ptholomaei a Georgio Trapezunda facta incipit. Codicis huius quem exposituri gratia salvatoris sumus volumina librique tredecim sunt, in quibus Ptholomaeus intendit erraticarum stellarum et fixarum motus invenire — (262v) maius inter observationes temporis spatium exigitur quam vita hominis sit.’ (followed by diagrams and notes).
