Written in long lines. On f. 1r there are 61 lines, on f. 1v 59 lines, and on f. 2r 57 lines.
The first leaf is fairly well preserved , although f. 1v is in some places dark. The ink appears to have faded a little in the margins, and the writing is in some places unclear. The second leaf is badly damaged. The margin on the right-hand side as well as the top right-hand and left-hand corners have been cut to such an extent that parts of the text have been eliminated. Furthermore, there are two holes in the left-hand side of the leaf. There is probably a single leaf missing between the two leaves.
1r-2r are by the first hand. This hand also wrote charter no. 35 (Ed. Stefán Karlsson, 1963) written in Vatnsfjörður 1363. According to the content this scribe could be active in the scriptorium in Skálholt.
2v is written by a second hand.
At the bottom of f. 1r there is a note written in a sixteenth-century hand: heidarligre kuinu sigride arnna dottur .
The Sigríður mentioned in the marginal note of f. 1r is possibly the daughter of Árni Gíslason, sýslumaður (d. 1587) of Hlíðarendi and the wife of Árni Magnússon in Grýtubakki. It is possible that the codex was at some time in the possession of Árni Gíslason or a member of his immediate circle or the circle of Sigriðúr herself. The southern connection (Skálholt) might suit Árni Gíslason, but it is worth noting that he was in Vatnsfjörður from c. 1540 until the late 1550s.
Árni Magnússon writes at the bottom of f. 1r and 2v that he acquired the leaves from Húnavatnsþing in 1708:
