Physical Description

Support

Paper.

No. of leaves
7. 323 mm x 205 mm.
Foliation

Foliated 1-7 in dark ink in the top outer corners.

Layout

Written in one column with 30 to 32 lines per page.

Script

Fols 1r-7r were written by Jón Erlendsson.

Fol. 7v was written by the priest Þorleifur Kláusson.

Additions

On fol. 7r is written: “alfur gilsason [sic] | Anno 1673”, and on fol. 7v “Solmundur | Bergsueinßon | meh”. This Álfur might be identical with the “lögréttumaður” Álfur Gíslason at Reykir in Ölfuss, and Sólmundur might be Sólmundur Bergsveinsson, brother of Hafliði. The first two lines of the poem on fol. 7v were repeated by a different hand.

Binding

The manuscript was once bound in a grey cardboard binding from c. 1730-80 with “No 194. C. | Saga Gauta og Gautreks Konga.” written on the front board. It is now bound in a modern BD-standard binding measuring 310 mm x 218 mm x 12 mm.

History

Origin

The manuscript was written in Iceland in the seventeenth century. Hast (Pappershandskrifterna till Harðar saga p. 173) assumes the manuscript was written for bishop Brynjólfur Sveinsson.

Provenance

According to Hast (Pappershandskrifterna till Harðar saga p. 173), it might have been bishop Brynjólfur Sveinsson who gave the manuscript to Þorleifur Kláusson. The later might have then lent it to the father of Sólmundur Bergsveinsson at Hrafnkelsstaðir and to Álfur Gíslason at Reykir in Ölfuss.
