Physical Description

Support

Paper.

No. of leaves
ii + 19 (last 5 blank) + i. 305 mm x 190 mm.
Foliation

The entire manuscript has been paginated in black ink on the recto side (1-37), and the first 14 leaves, i.e. those not left blank, have also been foliated (1-14) by Kålund in red ink (now somewhat faded as a result of conservation); the manuscript was refoliated in pencil (1-19) by Mariane Overgaard in 1980 in connexion with restoration.

Collation

  • I: fols 1-10 (1, 2+9, 3+8, 4+7, 5+6, 10)
  • II: fols 11-19 (11, 12+17, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19)

Layout

Written in long lines throughout, with 22 to 25 lines per page. There are running titles in the same hand as the text.

Script

Written, apart from fol. 12, by Jón Erlendsson from Villingaholt in a clear seventeenth-century Gothic book hand.

Fol. 12 has been added later to replace a missing leaf; the hand is younger but appears consciously to imitate the hand of the main scribe.

Binding

Bound in Árni Magnússon's time in parchment on cardboard, 310 mm x 196 mm x 6 mm

Accompanying Material

There is a slip (152 mm x 140 mm) in Árni Magnússon's hand; the text reads: “Fragment um Bravallar bardaga. Feinged til lans af Jone Þorlaks syne 1709. Sidan til kaups 1710. Er med hendi Sr Jons i Villinga hollte, og var innbunded i bok med odrum søgum.”
