Catchwords in the lower margins of the verso leaves.
Judging from these catchwords leaves are missing after fols. 19, 23.
The manuscript is composed of parts written at different times: fols. 1–4 probably during
saec. XVIII
, fols. 41–44 during
saec. XVI
, and the rest during
saec. XVII
. The manuscript is in relatively good condition. Several leaves have been repaired, especially around the edges, using a lining tissue. It is uncertain whether the current quire construction respects the original or has been created during the rebinding. Most leaves have been strengthened with paper in the gutter.
The watermarks are different between the sections written by different hands.
One column, no ruling; number of lines varies.
Three scribes writing cursives of date between
saec. XVI and XVIII
. Hand I (fols. ) wrote in
saec. XVIII
; hand II (fols. , ) wrote a very carefully executed and petite script, probably from the
beginning of saec. XVII
; Hand II (fols. ) wrote in a somewhat less formal, but still practised script, probably from the
end of saec. XVI
. (
Hausen 1881
argued that the manuscript was written by one hand at the beginning of saec. XVI; a more accurate summary is found in
Pirinen 1947, 68
).
No decoration. The layout and other features serve practical purposes.
Modern cardboard covers.
The manuscript contains copies of court records from the
Kaakkois-Häme
area. It is a compilation done at different times. According to
Pirinen (1947, 79)
the choice of documents shows that the manuscript was originally copied in
Porkkala
and later held in
Kankais manor
. Mostly the sections seem to be complementary, but there is some overlap: for example, fol. –v (written later) contain records also found on , the work of another hand; and contains a record also found on . The organization of the book, as well as certain notes referring to its sources, suggests that the manuscript was not a copy of a single medieval source but rather a compilation from various sources (see
Pirinen 1947, 69
).
At the beginning of the18th century
it was passed from
Kankais manor
to
Kurjala
, where it was held by
Kustaa Erik Tavast
(d.
1731
).
Fol. : ‘af heredhshöfding Erick Axcellsons dom book. denne Ofwan stående doms inne håld är ljka lydande ifrån ord uth skriffwn. Mavechmas d. 6 October 1747. Carl Christ. Eneman’ (
Hausen 1881, 28
). The reference is to
Erik Axelsson Tott
(see
Pirinen 1947, 70
).
Carl Eneman
was a captain who owned goods in Maavehma. He may have borrowed the manuscript while it was located in
Kurjala
(
Pirinen 1947, 80
).
The manuscript seems to have been passed on between officials and added to for centuries. It came to the
National Archives
in
1862
in the collection sold by
J. F. Stichaeus
; since he was the governor of
Häme
he had perhaps received it
ex officio
(
Pirinen 1947, 79
).
