Fols. 1–22 and 23–56 may originally stem from different manuscripts. The former section has suffered more damage and is more heterogeneous in its contents than the later section. Fols. 52–56 differ in contents from the rest of the volume, but are written by the same hand as fols. 23–51.
The first section (fols. 1–22) is notably dirtier than the rest of the volume.
One column with a varying number of lines.
I: Fols. 1–22: several hands writing cursives of
saec. XVI
.
II: Fols. 23–56: probably only one hand writing a cursive of
saec. XVI
with different inks. This hand appears to be the same, which is mainly responsible for the beginning of another of
Gustav Fincke
's copybook,
Uppsala, University Library, Nordin 164
.
No decoration.
Modern binding of cardboard with white covers. Two modern flyleaves inserted front and one back.
The manuscript contains a
copybook of official correspondence between Russia and Sweden
, reports from envoys sent to Russia and documents concerning the peace treaties. The volume contains two parts: the first includes documents mostly related to the
1520s and 1530s
; the second, documents from the
1550s
. Codicological and palaeographical differences suggest they belong to separate writing campaigns.
The copybook has been associated with
Gustav Fincke
(d. 1566) who in
1555–1557
was responsible for the defence of the eastern border against
Russia
. Fincke's involvement is suggested by the fact that the copybook stems from
Kankas
collection, which held other copybooks securely attached to Fincke by name. The second part of the book may well have been instigated by Fincke, by the date of the material. However, the first part contains documents predating Fincke's career, and must belong to an earlier process.
The copybook stems from the
Kankas
collection, which contained several copybooks with material related to
Gustav Fincke
and his offices. According to a note on the inner front cover, the current volume represents only a part of the original; the remainder is to be found in
Stockholm, National Archives, Kopiesamling, vol. 14
.
According to a note after fol. 22, the copybooks were taken from
Kankas
to the
Court of Appeals in Turku
in
1706
. From there, they were later moved to the
National Archives
in Stockholm.
