The manuscript is in good condition.
15 lines in one column ruled with ink.
One main hand writing a high quality cursive of
saec. XVI

.
The years are marked in red, the title ‘Anno domini’ and numbers of the notes are in blue. Apart from this there is no decoration.
Bound in limp parchment covers. The back cover has been so cut to produce a tag that was inserted for closure into a slit cut in the front cover.
The manuscript consists of a very small quire bound in parchment. The size suggests it was a personal notebook, albeit one written with considerable care and skill. The notes on fols. 1–12 have been separately numbered in blue and are referred to in the index by both folia number (in red) and this marking number (in blue). The first leaf containing unnumbered annalistic notes in Latin is not included in the index. These Latin notes were probably added later on, although they are written by the same hand as the rest of the text. The final note on fol. is added by another hand and left unnumbered.
A possible
tempus post quem
is provided by the last annal, for November
1566
. But this note is in a different hand than the rest of the manuscript. Since one note still mentions
Erik (XIV)
as king, the work was probably written before his deposition in the autumn of
1568
. The table on the inner back cover suggests that the manuscript was written in
1566
at the latest. Since the last note concerning
1566
is by another hand, the manuscript may indeed have been written already in
1565
. Several notes concern
Finland
and
Turku
. It seems likely that the manuscript was written in that area.
More interest is shown towards the nobility than to church affairs, perhaps suggesting that the owner was a layman. This is also suggested by the fact that this manuscript may have served as a source for
Klaus Hermansson Fleming
(d. 1616) in composing his
Memoriale chronicum
.
There is no information for how the manuscript came to the
National Library of Sweden
; On the back cover in ink ‘31’. The front cover has a pasted paper with the modern shelf-mark of the National Library written on it.
