Synopsis (From the Abstract) :

"This work is a text edition of Slavonic parchment fragments in Swedish libraries and archives. The Fragments are of Russian origin. They were probably taken as war booty in Russia at the end of the 16th and the beginning of the 17th century.

[...]

"The edition is diplomatic, i.e. the edited text follows the manuscript as close as possible. All parchment fragments are provided with glossaries. Each manuscript is introduced with a paleographic description, followed by a short linguistic commentary on spelling and dialectal features. In connection with the manuscript text there are also brief commentaries to facilitate reading and understanding."
