There is moisture damage throughout the manuscript in the upper margin. Especially at the beginning this has caused the ink to fade and become difficult to read. Apart from this there are some tears in the paper and fraying along the edges.
Watermarks suggest the manuscript was composed one year at a time: fols. 1–22: a
crown with a three leaved clover above it
(see
Piccard, Kronen I, 324-327
(dated 1454–1470);
Briquet, Couronne, 4645-4646
(dated 1459–1473); fols. 23–46: a
bull’s head with eyes and nostrils and a star above it
(
Piccard, Ochsenkopf VII
).
One unruled column with a varying number of lines.
At least two alternating hands writing cursives of saec. XV.
No decoration; the layout and other features serve practical purposes.
Limp binding of brown leather. It features a wrap-around flap from the lower cover, which is used to close the binding. There are two holes visible in the back cover. They were presumably used to insert leather straps or strings to fasten the flap. At the front a modern pastedown with the shelf-mark, a headline ‘Birger Trolles räkenskapsbok för Åbo slot och län 1463, 1464’, and reference to the modern edition.
The manuscript contains
Birger Trolle
’s (
c
. 1401–1471) accounts for the castle and province of
Turku
in
1463 and 1464
. Judging by the number of cancellations, corrections, and blank spaces left for additions, the manuscript may be a rough draft or used to keep running accounts. It is written by at least two scribes who were presumably employed in the castle’s chancery.
National Archives mark ‘C.2’ on the front cover. The manuscript came to the Archives from the
Kammarkollegiet's archives
, which became a part of the
National Archives
in
1922
.
