Script Commentary

Script is a typical roundish Alemannic minuscule: open a is more frequent than a; the shoulder of r often extends over following i; the nt ligature occurs in mid-word; ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti. A somewhat later entry on the lower half of p. 118 and on p. 119 is also in the Alemannic type. A carefully drawn pen-and-ink sketch of a hand in gesture of blessing stands in the lower margin of p. 116.
