a very similar hand in some respects to that of the Huntingdonshire scribe.
the scribe's upper compartment is triangular.
the overhang of the upper compartment is very reminiscent of the Huntingdonshire scribe's 'A's.
the upper compartment of this upper case graph is also triangular.
the lobe of 'd' may be oval as in this example, or more angular as in example 3.
the more angular lower lobe may be because the scribe was adopting a more formal hand for the Latin glosses.
'd' ligatured with following 'e'.
Usage: y greuede
'g' formed from several angled strokes. Again, very similar to the 'g' of the Huntingdonshire scribe.
(first 'g') 'g' appears almost as two triangles set one over the other.
a simple stem with no foot, with looped head-stroke and tail from the short limb tapering into a fine line curving clockwise.
the limb is shorter than the stem, the tail curves awkwardly from the base of the limb at an angle beneath the stem.
a more formal graph for the upper case letter with angled foot and added wavy line to the left of the ascender. The tail-stroke turns counter-clockwise.
the stem thickens towards the foot.
as with the Huntingdonshire scribe, the stem often appears waisted.
'z'-shaped 'r' follows 'o' and has a curly otiose stroke from the lower left point.
a single long 'r' found in a crossed-out section of the Latin gloss.
long 's' used in initial and medial positions.
sigma 's' used in final position.
a continuous flow from 's' to 'e'.
serpentine upper case 'S', again mirroring the Huntingdonshire scribe's practise.
'w's are evenly formed with the lower end of the left limb usually slightly higher than the middle stroke.
loops at the head curl to the right.
the separate formation of the left stroke may be seen in this example.
exactly the same formation of 'y' as the Huntingdonshire scribe.
|Thorn and Yogh|
the formation of both thorn and yogh are again very similar to that of the Huntingdonshire scribe.
