Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is tiny neat, angular minuscule, in part pure Caroline, in part a mixed type with Insular ; some pages (Vatic. fol. 5v, etc.) recall the late Maurdramn type (cf. CLA 6, p. xxiv); a and d have two forms; the ligature et has a curious form. Additions and corrections saec. IX–X. The medical texts on Leiden foll. 68v f., 75v f., etc., have interlinear rubrics saec. XII. Some marginalia saec. XV in the Vatican volume seem by an Italian hand.
