Script Anglo-Saxon Minuscule
Date VIII (701 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in England, to judge by script and other palaeographical features. Reached Fulda presumably at an early date, as the astronomical notes on foll. 13 and l3v were copied in Basel MS F III 15 a (CLA 7.842); the Fulda shelf-mark 'VIII. or. 6’ (saec. XV) is still seen on the front cover. Acquired by Remigius Faesch (†1667), professor at Basel, ca. 1630.

Script Commentary

Script is a curious type of Anglo-Saxon minuscule with majuscule admixture: minuscule a is practically the rule; d, r, and s occur here and there in the majuscule form. Probationes pennae saec. VIII and IX, mostly by Anglo-Saxon hands, are seen on both front and back covers. The binding is thick yellowish leather and must be contemporary.
