Script Commentary

Script is a small, rather uncalligraphic minuscule (except for the first page, which is in more dignified style): the most striking letter is the i shaped like a shallow elongated s extending above and often below the line; the final strokes of m and n are often dragged below the line; goes well below the line and occasionally has the majuscule form.
