Collation

The manuscript consists of a single gathering, originally having eight leaves, but now only six as the two innermost leaves have been lost.

Condition

The outermost pair of folios are so blackened and worn that reading is difficult and in places impossible. The upper and outer margins are completely cut away. The two innermost folios of the manuscript have been lost, for which reason the manuscript comprises two fragmentary parts.

Script

The manuscript is written in a regular Icelandic Gothic bookhand. The orthography is good.

Binding

The manuscript was bound in 1935 by Carl Lund. It is a parchment binding with the manuscript item and the serial number imprinted in gold on the upper board. 190 mm x 150 mm x 10 mm.

History

Origin

The manuscript was written in Iceland about 1300. It might have originally been in one manuscript together with Knýtlinga saga, now in AM 20 b I fol.

Acquisition

In Árni Magnússon's catalogue of Icelandic parchment manuscripts, now AM 435a 4to, he is undoubtedly referring to this manuscript when he writes on fols 60v-62r: “Skiỏlldunga Sỏgu fragmentum ut puto. 4 blỏd 4to.”
