Book & CD-ROM. The oldest manuscript of Alexanders saga, AM 519a 4 Degrees, from circa 1280 is considered to be one of the most important extant pieces of Icelandic writing from the medieval period. Alexanders saga is the Norse translation of Walter of Chatillon's epic poem about Alexander the Great, Alexandreis. The volume contains an introduction, the text in 'facsimile', quantitative analysis of the manuscript's palaeography, orthography and phonetic system as well as a lemmatised index. The accompanying CD-ROM contains colour illustrations of the complete manuscript and reproduces the text in a diplomatic and normalised version, allowing the user easy access to the three text levels as well as other functions.
