Script Anglo-Saxon Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written in Germany, probably in the Main region, in a centre where Anglo-Saxon influence was paramount. The scattered leaves were used for bookbindings. The Stuttgart Incunabulum 9600 has the typical binding of the monastery library of St Stephan in Würzburg; the note 'georius beyel ist dass buch' (saec. XV) is seen on the recto of Cod. Fragm. 64. The Würzburg incunabulum, a missal, in which the offsets of the Munich and New York leaves are seen was printed by Sensenschmid in 1475 and comes from Münsterschwarzach. The Glazier leaf was formerly owned by Max Kammerer of Wartenberg.
