Physical Description

Support

Parchment.

No. of leaves
100 + 1a (fly-leaf). The fly-leaf and fol. 100v were originally blank. 174 mm x 121 mm.
Condition

Lacunae occur as a result of leaves lost or cut out.

Layout

Written in one column throughout with 14, occasionally 15 lines, to the page. Chapter headings are in red, whereas initials occur in varied colours.

Script

The main scribe wrote fols 1r-82v and 84r-91v.

A second hand wrote fols 92r-100r.

Fol. 83r-v (Botløst mal), which is possibly a later addition, is written by a third hand.

Musical Notation

Additions

On the recto side of fol. 1a a runic alphabet together with a transliteration into the Latin alphabet and a note on the codex are found. On the verso side there are notes by Sidsel Bryske (c. 1510-73), Ole Worm (1588-1654), Willum Worm (1633-1704) and 0le Borch (1626-90).

Binding

The manuscript is bound in a parchment binding with the title written on the spine. The binding is dating before 1700, possibly c. 1650. The binding measures 138 mm x 138 mm x 57 mm.

History

Origin

The manuscript was written in Skåne, Denmark, now Sweden c. 1300; perhaps at Herrevad monastery.

Provenance

The first fly-leaf (1a) contains several information about the history of the codex. In a note on the recto side, written in the year 1569, the widow of Eskild Gøye (d. 1560), Sidsel Bryske (c. 1510-73) at Langesø (Funen), informs that the codex belonged to her brother, Antonius Bryske (c. 1500-66), and that she now gives it to Peder Severinsen (c. 1540-1602), kannik in Viborg: “Thenne Boeg Haffuer hørt Min | sallige Broder Anthonius Bryske till. | Oc Nu haffuer ieg Sitzell Bryske | salig Eskel Gois Epterleuerske til langso | Giffuet hederlig Mand. Mester peder | seurinsson kanick Udi Viburge thend | Skriuet paa Langesoe then 29 dag Martij | Anno regis 1569”. On the bottom leaf, below two lines in runes, Professor Ole Worm (1588-1654) states the ownership of the manuscript: “Nunc optimo jure sibi vendicat olaus worm.”; his son, Willum Worm, indicates that he has inherited the book: “Hæreditario jure nunc possidet Wilhel|mus Worm | olai F.”. Below these two notes, a third note informs that the codex belonged to Bibliotheca Borrichiana, viz. the library of 0le Borch (1626-90): “Bibliotheca Borrichiana | posthac esto libelle.” On the bottom recto side of the fly-leaf another note tells that Willum Worm gave the codex to Ole Borch: “Donum illustris Viri, Wilhelmi Wormij.”
