double compartment 'a' with upper compartment smaller than the lower one.
a form of upper case 'A' seen frequently in, for example, the London Letter Books where this form is often used when naming the 'A'ldermen.
the scribe often inserts what seems to be an upper case graph in the middle of a word comprising lower case graphs.
the lower lobe of 'd' may be angular or more rounded.
an example showing both rounded and angular lobes.
'd' with enlarged point at the left side of the lobe and hairline to close.
upper case 'D'.
'g' is formed with several strokes joined by hairlines giving a squarish aspect to the upper lobe and a triangular aspect to the lower lobe.
'g' in final position frequently has a curl to finish, even where an extra 'e' might not be expected.
the stem of 'h' is slightly angled, giving a tilted appearance to the graph.
an open head to most of this scribe's 'h's.
Usage: hys hed
a single example on this folio of a crossed 'h' following 'c'.

this form of sigma 's' is used in initial position.
long 's' is also used in initial position.
sigma 's' used in final position.
this word occurs after a punctus elevatus and may be the scribe's upper case selection for this graph, and does not differ in form from the conventional lower case graph.
the scribe has several forms of 'w' which he varies to no apparent plan. Here both limbs have closed looped heads.
there is a curved approach stroke to the left limb of this version. The middle limb is still looped.
the left limb is not parallel with the middle one but extends out to the left with closed head at a higher level than the head-loop of the middle stroke.
'W' in upper case position. A separate and open-headed left limb with head-stroke arching over the middle loop.
'y' is frequently dotted with tail which curls back almost completing a loop.
