All three volumes of Historia regum Danicorum are foliated consecutively 1-1174 by Kristian Kålund just above the right corner of the text. This volume is foliated 787-1174.
Older foliation 762-1178 in the upper right-hand corners (this foliation is, however, not consistent with the number of blank leaves). It seems possible that more leaves were reserved for the history of Christian III.
Half-binding with leather spine and corners; the boards are covered in brown marbled paste paper. Gilt-tooled and framed title on the spine: J.J. PONTANI / HISTORIA DANICA / AB Anno 1520 AD 1588. Above the title, the initials of Copenhagen University Library: B.U.H. are found.
