Klinckowström’s Collection. The Establishment of the Stafsund Manor and Swedish Royal Library Collections of Church Slavonic Parchment Fragments

This paper examines the role of the Swedish Baron R. M. Klinckowström (1816–1902) as a collector of Church Slavonic parchment fragments. In the 1840s or early 1850s, he acquired from the archives of the Swedish Chamber and War Colleges some 90 medieval East Slavonic parchment leaves which during the 16th and 17th centuries had been used as wrappers for accounts by Swedish bailiffs and administrators. Through an analysis of surviving correspondence between Klinckowström, G. E. Klemming (acting head of the Royal Library) and Professors B. Dudík and F. von Miklosich, as well as of data from the parchment fragments themselves, it is shown that the Baron had his collection evaluated in Vienna in 1862–63 by the Slavists Dudík and von Miklosich. In connection with this he divided the leaves between himself and the Swedish Royal Library, a fact which can still be traced in some of the shelf numbers of the two collections. Miklosich later used his excerpts from those manuscripts that are now held at the Royal Library in the second edition of his Church Slavonic dictionary (1862–65). The Baron’s own collection, kept at his Stafsund Manor, was examined by the Swedish Slavist K. Knutsson in the 1920s or 1930s but was then lost for many years until acquired in 1981 by the Swedish National Archives at Stockholm.
