The information I had from an other site dealing with AM 544, 4to and the
Árni Magnússon Institute in Reykjavik gave other information. Since that
information was forwarded late in time, I will check it again. But the
person behind the forwarded information should know.
I am not at all sure that you are right Alan. Here is an url written by
Margrét Eggertsdóttir, Manuscript Resources in Iceland. The url seem to
support the information I had the other week while checking:
"The main sources for these voyages are preserved in the Árni Magnússon
Institute in Reykjavík. These sources are Eiríks saga, the Saga of Erik the
red, preserved in two medieval vellum manuscripts, one called Skálholtsbók
(AM 557 4to, written in about 1420 in the north of Iceland) and the other
Hauksbók (AM 544 4to written about 1300). "
Rest of your comments will have to wait until this one is definitely solved.
You have one information, I don't know how old but I know that my
information is close to today and that the url written by an Icelandic
"íslenskulektor " not to mention what you can read about her in this url:
Can't help thinking that she knows more than you and me.
