Paper
160 folios
16cm × 19cm (11,5cm × 15cm)
Modern foliation in ink in the upper margin; contemporary chapter numbers in the upper margin of each page; article numbers in the outer margin.
The tight binding makes collation extremely difficult, but the manuscript seems to be mainly composed of binio-sized quires.
Catchwords in the lower margin of each page.
The manuscript is in good condition. There is some staining, and ploughing (probably at the rebinding) has caused cropping to some of the marginal annotations.
One watermark (or possibly a few similar ones) featuring a
tower with two gates
appears throughout the manuscript (cf.
Piccard 3,
Turm
, X
). This indicates that all of the leaves were part of the manuscript from the very beginning.
one column with dry-point ruling (only occasionally visible), 26–30 lines of text.
The manuscript is written by a scribe who identifies himself as
Laurentius Erici
by signing his initials on fols. , , , , and his name ‘LAURE: ERICI’ on fol. . The same name also appears in a closely related manuscript of the
Stadslag
(
Stockholm, National Library, Rålambs samling 143 4
o
), which is dated
1552
in Turku (and another section in
1569
).
Schlyter (1865, XXVIII–XXIX)
suggest that both manuscripts were, in fact, written by Laurentius Erici.
It should, however, be noted that the section dated 1569 in
Rålambs samling 143
, is written in a style very different from the one appearing in the
Stadslag
texts in either manuscript. If the year
1590
, entered in the illumination on fols. , , , and of this manuscript (it seems to be in same ink and by the same scribe who supplied the chapter numbers), refers to the year of writing then this would also make Laurentius’s career as a scribe an exceptionally long one.
Additions were written in the margin by the main hand using a different script.
Initials in red with interlaced and other types of decoration (similar to
Rålambs samling 143 4
o
); here, occasionally with faces (e.g. fols. , , ). Initials for the articles usually 3–4 lines high, and those for the chapters
c
. 6–10 lines high. On fol. , initial ‘N’ with the text ‘NOSSE TE IPSE’ written inside; here
Laurentius Erici
has added his initials (in
Rålambs samling 143
, a similar initial, where the initials are those of
Nicolaus Olavi
). More complex initials in red and black on fols. , , , . Green is used in decorations on fols. and yellow on fols. .
Rubrics, article numbers and paraphs in red.
A completely renewed French binding with gold tooling on the spine. On the spine also a tooled headline ‘En gammal lagbok’ and a pasted paper label with the shelf-mark. Red edges. Paper pastedowns.
The manuscript contains a copy of
Magnus Eriksson
’s
Stadslag
. A possible scribe is
Laurentius Erici
whose name is found in the manuscript, as it is in another one with a closely related
Stadslag
text dated
1552
in
Turku
(
Stockholm, National Library, Rålambs samling, 143 4
o
). This manuscript also carries the year
1590
entered in several places, which may indicate the year of writing.
The close relationship to a Finnish law manuscript is an indication that this one may also have originated in
Finland
.
The manuscript has the name and initials of
Laurentius Erici
entered in several places. He was possibly the scribe.
Additions made in
saec. XVII
, which include
Stockholm
’s privileges from 1636, suggest that it had come to Sweden by that time.
The manuscript previously belonged to the
Engeströmska biblioteket
, entering it possibly with the collections of
Mathias Benzelstierna
, which arrived in after his death in
1791
. It shows shelf-marks ‘n:o 61’ found in the catalogue and on a spine-label, and ‘n:o 63’ found on the inner front cover and in Schlyter. Other numbers appearing are ‘165’ on the
inner front cover
, and ‘248’ on fol. .
Inner front cover
: ‘J. Carlstedt’(?) in a hand of
saec. XVIII
.
The Engeströmska collection was donated to the
National Library of Sweden
in
1864
.
