Catchwords appear regularly in the lower margin of each page, in all sections.
The manuscript is a composite of different booklets written around the end of saec. XVI. The texts are by different hands and new texts regularly begin in new quires. There are also notable differences in the paper used for different sections. However, the letters (fols. 360–377) share one quire, although they are written by two different hands.
The manuscript is in good condition. There is fraying along the edges and some small dirt and moisture damage.
One column (in some sections with bounding lines ruled with a hardpoint) with a varying number of lines.
Several different cursive hands of
saec. XVI or XVII
. Fols. 1–277 feature either one main hand producing a rather inexpert and uneven script or two main hands writing in stints of various lenght.
The other texts are each usually written by one hand. Compilation of
Johannes Magni
’s work, written in humanistic cursive, probably by
Marcus Henrici Helsingus
, the rector of the school in
Turku
from
1595
.
Simple pen-drawn majuscules at the beginnings of chapters. Apart from this, no decoration.
Cardboard with simple white leather covers, possibly renewed. Shelf-mark ‘E 32’ and a title-word appear on the spine. Pastedowns of paper.
The manuscript contains several historical texts written during the
end of saec. XVI or at the beginning of saec. XVII
. They were written mostly as independent texts by several different hands. The latest texts contain reference to the year
1600
. Many of the historical texts end in the 1580s or 1590s, which provides a
terminus ante quem non
for those parts of the manuscript.
Some of the texts are related to the
diocese of Turku
: the excerpt from
Johannes Magni
’s chronicle contains material specially pertaining to Finland, and was possibly written by
Marcus Henrici Helsingius
who served as the rector of the school in
Turku
from 1595; also included is a letter by the Finn
Johannes Jussoila
and a pamphlet related to the abolition of certain church ceremonies. Heininen suggests the compilation may originate from the cathedral chapter in
Turku
.
The binding has been renewed but it seems likely that the compilation of the booklets into one manuscript took place at the time of writing.
On the inner front cover: a struck-through name ‘Johan Gartz(?)’; possibly identical with the
Johann Gartz
(
Johannes Matthiae Gartzius
) (d. 1681) who enrolled in the Åbo akademi in 1644, and held offices in the
Turku
Court of Appeals from 1653 to 1680.
In the lower margin of the first flyleaf a faded note referring to ‘--- Svederi’ in April
1706
has been made. This possibly refers to
Matthias Sweder
(
Matthias Svederius
) who was the professor of law in Turku from 1686, left Finland in 1713, and from whose collection
Germund Carl Cederhielm
(1717–1789) acquired some of his books (see
Carlander 2, 493
).
On the inner front cover a pasted coat of arms belonging to Germund Carl Cederhielm, who presided over the Turku Court of Appeals in 1780–1788. The Cederhielm collections were bequeathed by his son,
Germund Ludwig Cederhielm
, to the
Uppsala University Library
in
1841
.
University Library’s shelf-mark ‘E 32’ found on the spine and inner front cover. The library’s stamp is found on the inner back cover.
