Script Commentary

Script is a careful Anglo-Saxon majuscule with a decided uncial flavour, recalling the Canterbury Gospels, London Royal MS I. E. vi (CLA 2.214): uncial A found even in mid-word; the uncial form of R occurs regularly, of S usually; uncial B and capital D occur here and there; d and n are usually half-uncial.
