Script Commentary

Script is of the Rhaetian type with pronounced and sometimes erroneous separation of letters and words: the characteristic form of a is used regularly; the characteristic and Caroline forms of t occur, with the former predominating; uncial and minuscule d are used indifferently; the shaft of h leans to the left; ligatures frequently used are en, re, ri, and st. Some contemporary corrections made suprascript or placed in the margin with signes de renvoi.
