the majority of this scribe's lower case 'a' graphs are variations on this form with horned head-stroke.
occasionally the scribe has a simpler form of secretary 'a' closed at the head with a hairline.
the scribe's upper case 'A's are double compartment with angular lower lobe.
a different form of upper case 'A'.
the scribe uses both looped and unlooped 'd' generally in about equal proportions.
an angular unlooped 'd'.
'd' in final position. The stroke which closes the loop continues to become a thick curving stroke which descends well below the graph before curving upwards.
most of the scribe's 'g' graphs are secretary forms with horned head and horizontal cross-stroke and a tail which turns counter-clockwise to finish.
occasionally the scribe has a simpler form of tailed 'g' with short tapering stroke for the tail and no return.
the head-stroke of 'h' may be looped or open. Here the head-stroke arches over the following graph.
the head-loop rests on the shoulder.
where 'th' are together, 'h' is nearly always crossed. The cross-stroke runs horizontally above the 'th'.
upper case letter at the beginning of a line. The thick stem-stroke begins only just above the level of the shoulder. The head-stroke forms a wide inverted 'V' above two graphs.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used in all positions.
'z'-shaped 'r' used here in initial position.
upper case 'R' seen here with following 'e' which makes use of the extension from 'R' as its first element.
| || |
kidney-shaped 's' is always used in final position.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
upper case 'S' with vertical slash bisecting the graph, extending both above and below.
'st' ligature always appears as here.
there is little variation in the 'w' graph.
the small, oval single lobe on the right side is a typical feature.
upper case letter formed in exactly the same way. The descender from 'F' in the line above bisects the left arm of the graph.
| || |
the 'y' graph has a vertical left limb and an exaggerated curve to its tail.
'Y' at the beginning of a line.
| || |
upper case 'B' is a strange graph.
lower case 'p' appears to be formed from a single stroke beginning at the upper left then looping round to descend in a tapering stroke.
upper case 'T' looks rather messy.
and a strangely-formed upper case 'P'.
