Script Commentary

Script, by more than one hand, is a broad, early minuscule of the type used in the Lake Constance region: a has two forms; the shaft of h often leans to the left; the top of frequently curves down to the left; z is tall; the nt ligature occurs in mid-word a feature of this type; other ligatures are fu, xt. Some additions and notes correcting the order of leaves are in a contemporary but somewhat thinner and slightly cursive hand.
