Paper
183 folios
20cm × 28,5cm
Two different foliations. The first, original(?), foliation (1–178), in ink in the upper margin, begins with the actual text, (a later hand foliated the slip that is fol. 179 and fol. 180). The second foliation, done with a stamp or typewriter in the lower margin, takes the title-leaf into account and continues throughout the manuscript (including the other item,
216b
, bound within the same covers). In this description, we have preferred to follow the first foliation.
Inserted slips after fols. 94, 100, 178 (numbered). The first flyleaf has been left unnumbered; there is a blank unnumbered folium after fols. 31 and 58.
A extremely tight modern binding, causing some loss of text in the gutter. The collation is, however, recoverable in the digitization based on microfilms that predate the rebinding (the microfilm is available at the National Archives). This shows that the manuscript had quires of varying sizes (from III to XI).
In places damaged by fire. The first flyleaf is particularly blackened by smoke damage.
Number of lines varies, no ruling.
At least four scribes, probably secretaries of the court, writing
sixteenth-century
cursives (I: fols. , with the exception of ; II: ; III: ; IV: ). Scribe IV is possibly
Lasse Mattsson (Matinpoika)
who presided over the lower court from
1550
.
Ingresses written in a more carefully executed script. Brackets drawn next to the lists of jurors, occasionally decorated. Apart from this, no decoration.
Modern binding in blue cardboard. The original parchment cover, with the title ‘Thetta Domboken J Nedhre häredhe j Kwmogardz län etc. för åren 1550–1552’, was removed in the
nineteenth century
. Now bound together with an account of the fines paid in Ylä-Satakunta in 1551 (
216b
).
The records were probably compiled relatively soon after the court sessions. They seem to represent a fair copy of the record, although certain additions and corrections are made (often by scribe I). The corrections by one hand, along with the foliation, which may be near contemporary with the texts, suggests that these session records were kept, and possibly bound, together from early on.
After having been compiled as a record of court sessions by the municipal judge’s office, the book was probably sent to
Stockholm
soon after the closing of the court season in
1552
. Fol. 1: ‘Dombok 1550, no. 27’, a mark of
saec. XVI
made in the
Chamber College
in
Stockholm
.
The book belonged to the shipment of documents taken to the
Senate archives
in
Turku
in accordance with the
Hamina
accords between
Sweden
and
Russia
in
1809
. The archives were moved to
Helsinki
in
1819
, but the book was not added to the catalogues of the
National Archives
before another shipment of documents arrived in
1864
.
