Script Commentary

Script is late Maurdramn type by several hands: open a and N are used by some scribes. Notae Tironianae occur on foll. 112, 115, 205 of Vol. 1. Probationes pennae saec. X on fol. A of Vol. 2. The title on fol. 1 of MS 88 is in precisely the same script and wording as the title on the fly-leaf in Paris Lat. 12226 (cf. CLA 5.637). Mid-ninth-century entries in Corbie script at the end and beginning of certain quires (e.g. 'pars prima' and 'P II' in MS 87, fol. 48v and 'pars secunda. deodoino' on fol. 49, and 'pars finai' in MS 88, fol. 134) show that the manuscript was distributed for copying by quires among several ninth-century scribes.
