The manuscript is in good overall condition.
One unruled column with a varying number of lines.
One main hand writing a cursive is mainly responsible for the text. It appears to be the same hand that appears in
Gustav Fincke
's other copybooks (
Stockholm, National Archives, E 8685
, and
Kopiesamling, vol. 18
(hand I)).
A few additional hands (fols. , ) write short stints.
No decoration.
Modern binding of cardboard with white covers. One modern flyleaf front and back.
The manuscript contains a
copybook
with reports of two Swedish delegations to
Russia
(
1561
and
1563
) and correspondence relating to those delegations. It was probably written at a date roughly contemporary with the delegations.
Gustav Fincke
(d. 1566) took part in the second delegation and had a role in organizing the first one. This, along with the facts that the main scribe also appears in two of Fincke's other copybooks and that the manuscript was kept in the
Kankas
collection with other material deriving from Fincke, suggests that it was written on his order.
A note (
saec. XVIII
) on the
inner front cover
indicates that the manuscripts stems from the
Kankas
collection and was taken in
1706
to the
Court of Appeals in Turku
.
National Archives' shelf-mark on the spine.
