a similar horned effect to the top of 'a' as with Hand D in this manuscript.
the scribe has several upper case 'A's. Here the lower stroke of the letter 'B' above crosses the looped approach stroke of the 'A'.
similar to version 2 but showing clearly the development of the letter.
the scribe uses a mixture of looped and unlooped 'd'. He seems to alternate them without qualm.
upper case 'D' at the beginning of a line.
tailed 'g' used throughout. The head of the stroke for the right side of the graph stands well above the left stroke.
'er' abbreviation after 'g' as a continuation of the horizontal cross-bar.

the 'h' graph usually tilts forward. Where there is a loop at the head it resolves on the stem rather than resting on the shoulder.
crossed 'h' in 'ch' combination.
a rare form of upright 'h' with no hook or loop at the head of the stem.
| || |
modern 'r' used throughout in all positions.
'z'-shaped 'r' usually after 'o' and some consonants, mainly with curved otiose stroke from the bottom left side of the letter.
'r' in final position with flourish.
final 's' is usually kidney-shaped.
long 's' used in all positions except final.
upper case 'S'.
occasionally final 's' also has the horned feature. This is the only example on this folio.
the scribe probably uses this 'w' with taller first stroke more frequently than the example in version 1.
the lead-in stroke to the left limb is sometimes a circle.
the tail of 'y' is a fine stroke compared with the body of the graph.
the tail of 'y' sweeps well over to the left beneath preceding letters.

Usage: I boundyn
the lead-in stroke to the stem is a loop. The stem is tapered at the top and bottom.
this word is at the beginning of a line.
this word occurs in the middle of a line.
the thorn graph is open at the top. Again the stem and added stroke to form the lobe are both tapering strokes.
many of the scribe's 'e's have the horn noted in Hand D in this manuscript.
'a' occasionally has a clear horn.
upper case 'E' also with horned addition.
upper case 'O' with spiked effect.
