Manuscripts of Iceland book. A comprehensive and profusely illustrated accompaniment to the exhibition The Manuscripts of Iceland, which was organised by the Arni Magnusson Institute and opened in the Culture House in Reykjavik on October 5, 2002. So I've read all the academic essays on different facets of Icelandic manuscript culture, and I've also used it as a scribal workbook and filled 10 sheets with calligraphy copied from this book. Overall it's a nice book.

Gísli Brynjúlfsson, a literary scholar and lecturer at the University of Copenhagen, gave a partly philological basis to his translation, citing in detail medieval sources for his creative combination or mirroring of Eddic and European elements.

SÁM 66 (Stofnun Árna Magnússonar á Íslandi) is an 18th-century manuscript now at the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies, Iceland. Reference information and a copy of this manuscript can be found online. This book was written in Iceland in 1765 and 1766. The back cover is dated 1765. The text follows that of earlier manuscripts and printed books. However the book contains a nice collection of illustrated pages on pages 73-80 (many of which are reproduced below).

A comprehensive and profusely illustrated accompaniment to the exhibition The Manuscripts of Iceland, which was organised by the Arni Magnusson Institute and opened in the Culture House in Reykjavik on October 5, 2002. In this collection of articles scholars present the story of Icelandic manuscripts, their medieval origins, the literature they contain and its influence up to the present day. The meeting of written Christian and classical culture with the rich oral traditions in Iceland brought forth a remarkable literary flowering, an eloquent source of information about pagan Scandinavian culture and thought. In time this literature came to inspire the sense of national character in the Nordic countries and exerted notable influence in the German- and English- speaking worlds. This book is a tribute to the central role that medieval Icelandic literature played in forging national identities in Northern Europe.
