						<bindingDesc><binding><p>The current binding is a modern half binding with fabric on the boards and leather covering on the spine and the corners.
						It was made by <name type="person" key="BirDal001">Birgitte Dall</name> in <date when="1970">April 1970</date>.
						Before, the manuscript was bound in a grey cardboard binding with plain white paper with chain-lines as pastedown. 
						The boards are thin and covered in grey, rather coarse, paper. The shelfmark <q>261</q>
						was written onto the binding in brown ink twice, once in the top left-hand corner of the front cover and at the top of the spine. 
						Inside the spine, parts of wastepaper are visible showing drawings in brown ink. This older binding is kept in the same box as the manuscript.</p>
						</binding></bindingDesc>
						<accMat>A thin booklet is kept with the manuscript. It contains three bifolia of blue paper with notes on the contents of AM 261 4to in the hand of 
							<name type="person" key="JonSig004">Jón Sigurðsson</name>. In front of the blue leaves, a slip in the hand of 
						<name type="person" key="JonTho010">Jón Þorkelsson</name> is found. It reads: 
						<q>AM 261. 4to.
