The Edda of Snorre Sturluson, transcribed from the codex Upsaliensis (about A.D. 1300), as printed in Edda Snorro Sturlusonar, tom. 2, Hafniae, 1852, pp. 250-363, except that the short poetical pieces are often omitted, and that where the printed edition omits four leaves (see p. 301 note) this MS. gives part of them (fols. 23, 24v), being a list of the Northern bards and a genealogy of the Sturlungs. Beg. 'Almattigr Gud Skapadi Limin'.

(fol. 37 seems to be a detached piece).
