Script Commentary

Script is a rather inexpert specimen of a distinct type of early French minuscule known as a-z script, described in the preceding item and in CLA 2.128, 174, and 5.539. The subscription in an eighth-century cursive charter hand at the end of the book (fol. 79v) reads: 'Explicit liber premiorum. Ego dulcia scripsi et susscripsi istum librum rotarum'; it is not in the ink of the rest of the manuscript.
