                            The corners and the spine are covered with
                            blue tape. On the spine, there are golden binding lines dividing the spine into 5 fields.
                            In the second field, there is the following title engraved in golden letters: <q>Varia Exscripta Chronici 
                                Grönlandici cum tïtulis manu A. MAGNÄI adscriptis</q>.
                            In the lowest field, there is a crowned national arms of Denmark (three lions)
                            supported by two savages with bludgeons. Hanging below, there is the Order of the Elephant.
                            <note>The binding stems from the time when the manuscript was part of the collection in the
                            <name type="organisation" key="KB">Royal Library in Copenhagen</name> (based on binding type and decoration).</note></p>
                            <p>There is a blue sticker with the shelfmark pasted onto the top part of the spine.
                        The pastedown and flyleaves are made out of blank paper without a watermark or chain-lines. On the pastedown of the front cover, 
                        the shelfmark was written in ink, and another hand has written <q>1961</q> in pencil.</p></binding></bindingDesc>

                            <p>On fol. <locus>20v</locus>, there is some writing consisting of two words perpendicular to the writing direction of the text.
                            The words were written with lighter ink in kurrent script. The first word starts with a large decorated initial. 
                                The second words is partly obscured by the last lines of the text. <note>Since the main text seems to partly cover the perpendicular writing, it 
                                can be assumed to be younger. Consequently, the scribe may have reused older paper that already had some writing on it. 
                                This correlates with the text on fol. <locus>20v</locus> not continuing to the bottom of 
                                the page, but ending after 9 full lines with a catchword.</note></p>
