Physical Description

Support

Parchment .

No. of leaves
70. 276 mm x 205 mm .
Condition

The manuscript is defective in the end, and there are several other defects. On several leaves the lower margin is damaged. In the last part of the manuscript the writing has been touched up here and there.

Layout

Two columns. Red rubrics, somewhat heavily decorated initials in different colors. Blank spaces in the manuscript are filled out in a hand from the 1500s .

Same hand as in AM 302 fol., AM 305 fol. and AM 56 4to.

Additions

Several additions in the margin of variants from other manuscripts, some in the hand of Árni Magnússon F. 56 is added by Árni Magnússon.

Between ff. 13 and 14 Árni Magnússon has added a paper leaf (4to) with part of Mag. Hans Gås 's Danish translation of Ærkebiskop Jons kristenret .

Accompanying Material

There are 3 AM-slips.

History

Origin
Written in Norway . Kålund (

Katalog vol. I p. 389

) has dated the manuscript to The beginning of the 1300s, while Grøtvedt (

Lydverket i lovhåndskrifter fra Borgartingslag 1300-1350 p. 7

) and Steinnes (

Rygjarbit p. 35

) have both dated it to ca. 1300 .
Provenance
An older binding reveals that in the 1500s the manuscript belonged to the Icelandic lögmaður Ormur Sturluson and thereafter “Pouel Helie ſon” in 1577.
Acquisition
From the three AM-notes we know that Árni Magnússon bought the manuscript in Bergen in 1689 from Paul Paust . Árni Magnússon removed several paper leaves that belonged to the manuscript. These now form AM 330 fol.
