parchment
16 fols.
8,5cm × 10,5cm (5,5cm × 7,5cm)
not foliated
The badly fragmentary remains of perhaps three quires (fols. [1–7], [8–9], [10–16]), of which the most complete is a defective quinion (fols. [10–16])
Fols. [15] and [16] still have their folds intact). Fols. [3] and [8] have been damaged by heat. The contents have been marked in ink and in pencil on the folia (using the modern numeration of Psalms).
Text in one column, ruled in lead (below the top line, double lines in the inner margins).
Protogothic bookhand written by one scribe.
Decoration
Two orders of lombards painted alternately red and blue; psalms distinguished with a flourished larger lombard, verses with smaller lombards without flourishing.
Unbound leaves and strips, some of which ([1–4] and [10–16]) have been lightly sewn together after reconstruction. There are removed parchment covers (which have had paper glued to them) preserved with the fragments, but these, while smallish (9,5 × 14), do not seem to fit what is presumed to be the original size and shape of the fragment folia (which in any case are reported as having been found in the binding of a tax-book).
It is not known how this portable psalter (or parts of it) found its way to
Åland
to be used in binding a tax book.
The fragments are enclosed in a blue cardboard folder, on which is written in a hand of
saec. XIX
‘Psalterium i böneboks-format, fragm. funnit i en räntebok från
Åland
1537–38’ (the same information is repeated on a piece of paper accompanying the fragments).
After the leaves were recovered they were sent to the
National Library of Finland
.
