double compartment 'a' with upper compartment usually slightly smaller than the lower. The head is flat and sometimes linked by a hair-line stroke.
the lower compartment is oval in shape.
the upper case graph has a squared off lower lobe.
Usage: do bet
looped 'd' is used throughout. It has a pointed lower lobe.
Usage: do best
'd' in final position with tag added to the extended loop-stroke.
triangular lower lobe and oval loop.
'g' is also a graph with angular aspect. The squarish upper lobe is finished with a hairline stroke across the head.
the lower compartment of 'g' is frequently pointed at the left side.
the upper compartment is squarish in shape.
'h' has a triangular head-loop and leans slightly to the right.
'h' is often crossed when it follows 't', (though see version 4).
'h' is also crossed in this combination.
long 'r' is used initially and medially.
modern 'r' is used in both medial and final positions.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used after 'o' and round-bodied graphs.
modern 'r' in final position.
both sigma and long 's' are used in initial positions.
kidney-shaped 's' is used in final position. Most 's's in final position on this folio have the curved otiose stroke as an addition.
long 's' in initial position.
the head of long 's' is closed in this example, forming a loop.
the left limb of 'w' is usually a separate entity.
both limbs are very upright. The head-loops extend quite a way above the 'B'-shaped element to the right.
the upper case graph is exactly the same as the lower case one.
the left limb of 'y' is vertical.
the tail-stroke does not vary very much in curvature or length.
the tail of 'y' is often short.
thorn is indistinguishable from 'y'.
