The Arnamagnean Commission have begun the publication under the title Editiones Arnamagnæanæ of a series of critical editions of texts based on the manuscripts. The works are to be divided according to size between Series A in larger, and Series B in smaller format. Hrólfs Saga Kraka, edited by D. Slay, M. A., Ph. D., is now issued as the first volume of Series B.
This edition af Hrólfs saga kraka, though it can be used by itself, is intended to be a companion volume to The Manuscripts of Hrólfs Saga Kraka, Bibliotheca Arnamagnæana vol. XXIV. The two books between them provide the material necessary for establishing the text af the saga as it has been handed down to us, and the means af determining the textual value of that material.
