abstract = "{\'A}rni Magn{\'u}sson’s rearrangement of paper manuscripts draws attention to the early history of {\'A}rni Magn{\'u}sson’s (1663-1730) manuscript collection. The thesis examines {\'A}rni’s extensive rearrangement of paper manuscripts, showing that he repeatedly altered the physical composition of codices in his collection. The study is codicological in nature and investigates the frequency of rearrangements, {\'A}rni’s working procedure and the rationale behind his custodial changes.The analysis shows that, for the time period investigated, the majority of manuscripts in the Arnamagn{\ae}an Collection have been altered. {\'A}rni’s work procedure was designed to enable the aggregation of copies of different origin and content as well as continual re-adjustment of the individual manuscripts. {\'A}rni’s rearrangement of manuscripts manifests itself in a variety of patterns, but in most cases, his aim was to facilitate scholarly work with the source material. On the whole, {\'A}rni created a flexible library in which the physical form of the manuscripts was subject to his personal needs and changing preferences.The thesis provides the first coherent description of {\'A}rni's rearrangement of manuscripts and allows a more nuanced understanding of the rather complex early history of the Arnamagn{\ae}an Collection as well as the present-day form of many of its manuscripts.",
