double compartment anglicana 'a' is used throughout.
occasionally the upper compartment is not completed.
hairline joining upper and lower compartments in this example.
just one of the many versions of upper case 'A' used by this scribe. See Wild Letter 3 for more examples.
angular lobe on the looped 'd'.
the scribe's graphs are all very evenly formed with little variation.
upper case 'D' with 2-shaped element to begin.
angular double compartment anglicana 'g'.
the lower compartment is almost triangular. In final position the 'g' has an added vertical tag.
the scribe also uses tailed 'g'. The use of each different graph seems to go in blocks.
'g' in final position with tag.
the scribe uses 'h' with an angled foot on the stem as in this example, or he may use one without, as in version 2.
'h' after 'g' is crossed when in final position.
upper case 'H' at the beginning of a line.
modern 'r' is used in all positions.
'z'-shaped 'r' is only used after 'o'.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions. The stem usually ends on the line. Since this scribe writes above the line there is a short extension to 's' beneath the lower level of the surrounding graphs.
final 's' is of this form. Sometimes it appears almost as a kidney-shaped letter, sometimes it is more 8-shaped.
example to show both 's' and 'h' ending on the line.
upper case 'S' with parallel line decoration.
looped 'w' where occasionally the loop at the head of the middle arm is not quite closed.
a 'B'-shaped element at the right.
a more elaborate graph as the upper case letter.
the tail of 'y' also ends just about on the line. 'y' and thorn are difficult to distinguish at times.
only very occasionally does the tail of 'y' turn counter-clockwise.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used frequently in all the usual places but also more widely as a 'th' replacement.
there is almost no descender on thorn. The body of the graph sits on the line and stem and lobe are of almost equal size.
yogh also sits on the line. Yogh is not widely used except for the sound of 'y'.
|Upper Case Letters|
the scribe has some elaborate upper case graphs, usually decorated with double parallel lines.
an upper case 'I' reminiscent of the one favoured by Scribe D.
|Upper Case A|
four different examples of the scribe's versions of upper case 'A'.
