Physical Description

No. of leaves
72. 217 mm x 153 mm.
Foliation

Layout

The manuscript is written in long lines with 23 lines to the page. Rubrics are in red and pen-flourished majuscules in red or blue. There are column headings.

Script

The manuscript is written in a Gothic Bookhand.

In the chapter on sorcery, the shade of the ink is lighter than the rest of the text and could therefore be a later addition.

Additions

Some marginal references are found. In the left margin of fol. 70v a profile of a man is found , and on fols 4v and 5v there are animals.

Binding

Bound in a parchment binding (an old sea chart) from the beginning of the eighteenth century (1700-1730) ; 222 mm x 160 mm x 33 mm. On the front fly-leaf Kristian Kålund has noted the date 14.08.1886.

History

Origin

The manuscript was written in Denmark. It has been dated c. 1400 by Kristian Kålund (Katalog vol. I p. 341). Later, Peter Skautrup dated the manuscript to c. 1350, except from the chapter on sorcery which he hesitatingly dates to the beginning of the fifteenth century (Skautrup 1933 p. xvi). However, all of the manuscript is now thought to date from as early as c. 1300 (Kroman 1943 p. 57).
