An elaborate literary history of Iceland, compiled in 1760 by Thorstein Petursson, but with additions to 1785, written in the 18th cent.

Fols. 3-12, 35-87, 89-114, are in a small neat hand, perhaps that of a scribe; the rest may be the author's. The divisions of the book are fully set out in the 1832 printed catalogue. A probably unique MS., the autograph of the author.
