the scribe has a very distinctive hand with several individual letter forms which could aid identification.
distinctive upper case 'A' with upper lobe much bigger than the lower lobe and arching back.
(first 'd') unlooped 'd' is used. A wedge-shaped top to the head of the down-stroke. A diagonal wavy stroke almost closes the head then turns to provide the right side of the lobe.
'd' followed by 'e' is ligatured.
the formation of 'd' is not consistent.
double compartment 'g' is formed from a series of angled thick strokes joined by hair-lines.
Usage: long game
the final abbreviative mark is not an 'is' contraction. However, this is the scribe's regular spelling in other examples on previous lines.
the horizontal stroke towards the next graph leaves the upper compartment at mid-point.
the split at the top of the stem of 'h' is seen on a number of this scribe's other graphs.
as with 'd' the descending limb stroke is wavey.
upper case 'H' with more conventional arching head and a precisely angled foot at the base of the stem.
the 'thick-thin-thick' form of the down-stroke has a waisted appearance.
'z'-shaped 'r' in combination with a very distinctive 'p' graph. The otiose stroke from the lower left of the graph is a continuation, in a straight line, of the top stroke.
long 's' has an angled foot which sits on the line and is in line with the lower level of surrounding graphs.
(rarely used) a more usual anglicana 's' with no foot and tapered end to the stem. However, it does not extend much below the line.
8-shaped 's' used in final positions.
also in final position, this kidney/6-shaped 's' also occurs occasionally.
'w' is consistently formed usually with a small lip at the top of the limbs and the b-shaped element to the right.
the tops of the limbs have slightly more exaggerated strokes to lead in and angular feet.
'y' is consistently formed with the tail a straight, fine continuation of the second stroke.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used frequently on all occasions for 'th' though not entirely replacing it.
angled abbreviative mark for 'er' sits above the thorn.
yogh is always precisely formed and used as equivalent of both 'y' and 'gh.
|Upper Case Letters|
upper case 'I' with distinctive stroke at the head and significant cross-bar.
serpentine upper case 'S'.
upper case 'N' with 2-shaped element to begin, angled feet and parallel strokes to decorate.
