a rounded version of single compartment 'a'.
a squarer lobe with hairline to join at the head.
one of the two versions of upper case 'A' on this folio. The extension to the left may be longer or shorter.
a second, entirely different upper case 'A'.
the typical unlooped 'd' of this scribe.
occasionally it is possible to see the scribe forming a faint upper loop rather than the single stroke to be seen in version 3.
the scribe's tailed 'g's are all variations on a theme. The tail always turns counter-clockwise.
a more spikey version of 1.
here there is no circular lobe and the graph is almost as in version 4.
the graph here is basically two down strokes, one with a kink for the tail, with a horizontal cross stroke to join the two.
the scribe's 'h's are, on the whole, of consistent formation but as may be seen in version 2 they become a little less structured as the scribe races to finish the folio.
this 'h' appears to be an upper case graph. It may be that the scribe was taking more care in copying out the list of Sacraments. 'The' here is followed by the word 'Sacrament'.
upper case 'H'.
only 'z'-shaped 'r' is used in all positions. It gives a rather odd aspect to the script. Here 'r' in initial position.
'r' within a word but set as a graph separated from those before and after.
'r' in final position.
kidney 's' is always used in final position.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions. The head may be rounded as in this example, but see version 3.
long 's' frequently has a fat upper stem which tapers distinctly lower down. The head stroke may dip rather than being rounded and it is sometimes possible to see a short wing to the left of the stem where the scribe begins his stroke.
upper case 'S' used for two of the five 'bodyli wittes', 'Seeynge' being the other.
in initial position there may be a curved approach stroke to 'w'. There is a double lobe to the right of the middle stroke forming the final element. When the left stroke joins the middle stroke, it is usually close to the top of the graph.
the left arm of 'w' may extend above previous graphs.
the left arm of 'w' does not always extend much above surrounding graphs.
the beginning of a sentence so presumably the scribe's upper case graph. The left arm of 'w' may be detached from the middle stroke and final element.
most of the scribe's 'y's are neatly executed with shortish tail with the fork above the level of the line.
the scribe's graphs vary, perhaps according to speed of writing or level of concentration.
occasionally the tail of 'y' is taken up to join the following graph.
|Upper Case Letters: I and T|
the scribe's upper case 'I' has a long trailing approach stroke which may be even longer than in the example shown here.
upper case 'T' has a defining detached pen-stroke within the curve of the graph.
macron with dot below to signal missing 'n' or 'un'.
missing 'n' marked with macron and dot.
the 'es' abbreviation.
the standard 'er' abbreviation.
