Commentary Finnish medieval MSS are rarer than even Icelandic MSS. Sir Thomas Phillipps, who had the largest MS collection ever assembled, had several Icelandic MSS, but not a single Finnish MS. Most of the surviving examples are in Helsingfors Universitätsbibliotek, all in fragments. The present MS is the only example in private hands.
