I just call it archaic, and it's typical of the writing of the day. I kind of get a kick out of it and occasionally do it myself.

I wonder, does anybody dots i's and j's when they write or print? I can't remember ever actually doing that, except maybe in early grade school.
I have always dotted my i's and j's. To be honest I don't think I've seen someone not do it. The dots are so integral to those letters!
Turkish actually has a dotted i and an undotted ı. The dotted İ is even dotted when capitalized.
Now that's cool. I would love to have capitalized I's with dots.
Time present and time past
are both perhaps present in time future.
And time future contained in time past.
