Even though Guðbrandur Vígfússon, Jón Sigurðsson, Konrad Maurer and Magnús Grímsson are not named as editors, they all played in varying degrees a key role in the editorial process (see further the introductions to the volumes by both Guðbrandur and Jón Árnason; and the various articles on the collection by Hallfreður Örn Eiríksson, Ögmundur Helgason, Ólína Þorvarðardóttir, Rósa Þorsteinsdóttir, Aðalheiður Guðmundsdóttir and Terry Gunnell listed in the bibliography).
