Eric Falck
’s
Een Tröstbook
is known to have been published, but no surviving printed copies have been identified;
Laurentius Olai Gestricius
’ catechism is otherwise unknown. He was a teacher in
Gävle
from
1557
or
1558
, then curate of
Västerås
from
1561
and of
Stockholm
in
1562
, where he died in
1565
(

Catchwords are frequently used at the foot of a page when a sentence is broken.
Condition is good, aside from a few loose leaves and some staining and fraying of edges, especially to the first two folia. Fols. [1], [8] and [73] are loose, and the last folio of the book, probably blank, is missing.
Text in one column, on (mostly) 26–33 lines, not ruled.
Gothic Cursive in one hand of the
second half of the sixteenth century
. A note fol.
[47]v
(see also the main text on fol.
[31]v
) indicates that the text was copied in
1580
. The anti-papist poem mentions the Jesuit
Antonio Possevino
, active in
Sweden
in
1577–1580
(
Kiiskinen ed. 2010, 25, 27
).
The first initial of the book has been touched with what looks like red pencil. This may be a later addition, as also the green colour to the outer edges of the book block. Titles and rubrics are distinguished, if at all, by layout only.
The book is bound but without covers. The present sewing may not be original, given that the annotations to the catechetical dialogue have frequently been partly lost to ploughing.
A collection of theological texts, such as could be of use to a parish priest, copied very probably c.
1580
by one Swedish scribe.
The book was found by
Terhi Kiiskinen
in
Nilsiä
,
Aholansaari
. Nothing is known of the history of the book before it ended up in Aholansaari, probably as a part of the library of the curate of
Varpaisjärvi
,
Gottlieb Aron Kleofas Hymander
(
1874–1931
, from 1918 Hyvämäki), bequeathed by his widow
Edit
in
1955
(see
Kiiskinen ed. 2010, 11
; cf.
idem
, 15–25).
The book, owned by the
Aholansaari Foundation
, is currently deposited in the
National Library of Finland
