Physical Description

Support

Parchment.

No. of leaves
2. 125 mm x 110 mm
Collation

The 2 leaves are conjoint.

Condition

The text has been damaged by the trimming down of the leaves.

Layout

Written in long lines. It would appear that even in their original state the pages did not all contain the same number of lines. f. 1r, where no complete line is missing, has 28 lines; f. 1v has 27 and the trace of the 28th. f. 2r has 26 lines but is possibly defective at the top, while no lines are missing from f. 2v, which have 25 lines plus the conclusion of a word that was begun in the bottom line.

Binding

Bound in a blue cardboard binding.

Accompanying Material

An inserted slip in Árni Magnússon's hand reads: “Var utanum prentada bok in 12mo ä Oddz Sigurdz sonar auction i Kaupenhafn. 1727.”

History

Origin

The fragment is written in Iceland. Kristian Kålund dated it to the second half of the fifteenth century (KKKat), whereas Jonna Louis-Jensen dated it more precisely to c. 1500 (Louis-Jensen 1981, p. lxiv).

Acquisition

According to the account on the AM-slip Árni Magnússon bought the fragment on the auction of Oddur Sigursson's in Copenhagen 1727. At that time it served as binding for a book in 12mo: “Var utanum prentada bok in 12mo ä Oddz Sigurdz sonar auction i Kaupenhafn. 1727.”
