Script Commentary

Eight scraps now mounted, being the remains of a volume of 64 leaves ruined by fire and so much shrunk that measurements have little value; the largest scrap measures ca. 150 × 90 mm. Script is a neat, roundish, and regular majuscule: d and n are uniformly minuscule, R majuscule, and s has both forms.


☛CLA first-edition provenance changed to follow second edition by adding information from Harley 6018.
