Script Commentary

Script, by two hands, is a pre-Caroline minuscule with some affinity to the Corbie a-b type: a has three forms; l and the shaft of b often break towards the foot; the shaft of d usually extends below the bow; the ascender of h sometimes inclines to the left; o usually resembles uncial D with the ascender curving to the right; r and s do not descend below the base-line.
