Script Commentary

Script is a crude pre-Caroline minuscule by more than one hand: open a is more frequent than a; d and are used; the eye of e often extends above the head-line; the stems of b and l tend to bend; z has various forms; suprascript a occurs in ligature often (once with the preceding letter, p. 286); subscript i occurs with m and n; the nt ligature is used in mid-word; ti ligature occurs for hard sound of ti.
