Physical Description

Support

Parchment.

No. of leaves
58. 250 mm x 182 mm.
Foliation

The manuscript is foliated in red ink in the lower margins by Kristian Kålund. It is also irregularly paginated on some of the recto pages and on fol. 58v.

Collation

The manuscript consists of ten gatherings, each gathering is numbered on its first leaf with a Roman numeral.

  • I: of the first gathering, only two conjoint leaves are extant. As two leaves are missing, one at the beginning and one at the end, this collation originally only consisted of four leaves.
  • II: originally eight leaves; the third and the sixth leaves are missing.
  • III: eight leaves
  • IV: originally eight leaves; the fourth and the fifth leaves are missing.
  • V: whole gathering now lost.
  • VI-VIII: eight leaves.
  • IX: originally six leaves; the first leaf is missing.
  • X: originally six; the last (probably blank) leaf is cut out.

Condition

The manuscript has several defects and is damaged due to a number of tears and a trimming of the margin.

Layout

The manuscript is written in long lines throughout with 24 to 29 lines per page. Initials (crudely done) in red or green, chapter headings in red.

Script

The entire manuscript is is written in a Gothic bookhand. Storm (Norges gamle Love vol. IV p. 566) characterised the hand as coarse and angular-shaped (“styg og kantet”) and with an oldfashioned spelling and language.

Additions

Various marginalia and a few drawings, e.g. on fol. 10r, lower magin, two birds. The last half of the last page has pen-trials and doodlings. All lacunae are marked on their previous page on the lower margin.

Binding

The manuscript was once bound in a parchment binding (an old sea chart).

Accompanying Material

On an accompanying slip, Árni Magnússon has written: “Frostoþings bők Magnusar Kongs. | membr: 4to stóru. er illa skrifud og vant-|ar vida j. hana hefi eg feingid j dan-|mork. er codex Legum D.
