Script Commentary

Script is a rather stiff Anglo-Saxon minuscule (a more cursive script is seen here and there at the end of pages): ae and at often run together; majuscule N, S, and R occur, the last rather frequently. The first page of the preface (fol. 173) is in Anglo-Saxon majuscule with R, S, and d, N and n. Marginal glosses in Insular and ordinary minuscule saec. VIII–IX and X.
