According to the Wikipedia entry on Rashi,
Some good images of that sefer can be found here. And yes, they are in "Rashi script"!
There's an undated edition of Rashi (also without the Chumash text) that is generally assumed to be from about 1470 - a few years earlier than Garton's edition referenced in Dave's response. A facsimile is at Hebrewbooks - and it's in square (not "Rashi") type.
