Physical Description

Support

Parchment

No. of leaves
4. 172-182 mm x 107-117 mm
Foliation

Foliated 1-4 in the upper right-hand corner of the recto pages.

Collation

There are 4 leaves, ff. 1 and 2, and ff. 3 and 4 are conjugate. The two bifolia originate from two different quires. 1r-2v was placed outside several other sheets, whereas 3r-4v formed the second sheet from the middle in another gathering.

Condition

The text begins and ends defective, and since the four leaves originate from different places in a quire it consists of four different text fragments.

Layout

The text is written in long lines with 25, 26 or 27 lines per page.

Script

The manuscript is written in a younger gothic bookhand. The script is not very carefully written. The letter 'g' is remarkable as the entire letter is written on the line with no descender.

Decoration

A rather primitive florished N-initial.

Musical Notation

The are notes accompanying the psalm line in the lower margin of 4v.

Additions

There are the following marginalia:

  • 1r: lower margin “laugar dagín”
  • 1v: lower margin “J aprilís manvdí snemma a svnnvdag var js j rekí med uedri míclv a nordan er”
  • 2r: lower margin “vínsensí messu ä fostv”
  • 2v: upper margin “hvad gvd skapte fyrst” This could also be categorized as a running title.
  • 4r: lower margin “vt af ættleg adams og enos sets son”
  • 4v: lower margin “psalmi lavdate domine omnes gentes lavdate” This is the beginning of the 1sixteenth psalm of the Vulgata.
  • 4v: lower margin “vt af ættleg adams og sonur guds”

Binding

The leaves are sewn on meeting guards and stitched into a cardboard cover.
