Layout

  • The text is written in one column with 20-23 lines per page and 7-12 words per line.
  • The written area measures ca. 160 mm x 120 mm.
  • Verses are marked with a small "v" in the margins.

Script

The scribe has not been identified yet.

Decoration

The initials on the first page span up to 3 lines and are richly decorated by means of, among others, flourishes, curls and bold lines.

Other initials are smaller (1-2 lines) and sometimes emphasised by means of bold lines or additional strokes and loops.

Additions

On the verso-side of the third front flyleaf can be read in brown ink: “Hannc Chartiam Vigrensem Voco. et per. Vig. noto”.

Fol. 69 is a small slip (50 mm x 97 mm) which is pasted onto fol. 70. It contains an addition to the text written by the scribe.

Binding

The binding is from Árni Magnússon's time (ca. 1700-1730). It is a half binding with reused parchment on the boards and blank parchment on the spine. The text on the parchment leaves was written in Latin. It is arranged in two columns, and there are many initials and decorations in light and dark red. On the spine, leather strings are worked through the parchment, and there are traces of two stickers for the shelfmark and the running number. The pastedowns (as well as the flyleaves) are made from white handmade paper.

Accompanying Material

An AM-slip (165 mm x 105 mm) is attached on the recto-side of the third front flyleaf of the manuscript. One of Árni Magnússon's scribes wrote on it the following message, which was corrected and altered by Árni Magnússon: “Knytlinga Sỏgu ä Vice Lỏgmadurenn, komna ur Vigur, Og skrifada epter þvi exemplari er Sira Helgi Olafsson kom med ur Sviariki annad hvert af Sira Helga sialfum eda ỏdrum, epter hans exemplare id nunc non meminit. er i 4to, byriar ä Sveini Kongi, (eins og Wormii charta., ,cujus apographum habeo). Relatio ipsius. Þadan mun Sira Vigfuss Gudbrands sonar exemplar vera.” On the verso-side of the slip Árni Magnússon wrote: “Lỏgmadrenn Pall Jónsson ä ennnu annad exemplar, in folio, komed sỏmuleidis fra Vigur.”

History
