A pagination of the leaves has been done from 260r and onwards, without consideration for fact, that the previous numbering is that of the foliation.
The first hand who wrote fols 1r-229rcan be identified as the one of Rassmus Hertuicksön.
The second hand wrote 229v-36v.
The third hand wrote fols 237r-40r, 291v-332v, 333v-350v, 351r-379v.

The ninth hand occurs on fols 385r-387v.
The tenth hand who wrote fols 388r-391v can be identified as Chresten Tranne's.
A few marginalia occur; among the younger ones one written by Torfæus on fol. 217r can be noted. It reads: Da er hun Nu denn afften som jeg Thormod Torfuesson leser hende 132 Aar thoe Maaned och sexs dage gammel, efftersom vi nu skriffuer 1675 den 30 November som er Sancti Andrea dag.
This Norwegian legal manuscript is written in either Denmark or Norway in the sixteenth century. The main manuscript is written in 1543, but it also contains various younger additions from the sixteenth century.
On 1v the following provenance notes, tracing the book to South-Western Norway are found: Thenne bog kommer Michel Eskelsøn tiill oc wor hannem giffuen af hans gode venn and Thenne bog er mig skienckitt aff mynn broder och gode wenn Mickel Eskellsen. Chresten Tranne, mynn egen handt. According to these statements Mikkel Eskildsen, who originally got the manuscript from a friend, presented his brother or brother-in-law Christen Trane with the book. Both men were residents of South-Western Norway. About a century later the manuscript came into the possession of Torfæus, as No 19 qv in his collection.
Árni Magnússon acquiered the manuscript of Torfæus' widow in 1720.
