double compartment 'a' is used throughout.
the stroke at the right is thick and straight.
this particular upper case 'A' may be seen frequently in the hands of London Letter Book H. It is often used when the word 'Alderman' is written.
the scribe has several forms of upper case 'A'.
looped 'd' used throughout.
the abbreviation for 'quod' attracts the usual tag on the semi-superscript 'd'.
a very small lobe for this 'd'.
'g' is always a double compartment letter.
the lower compartment tends to be triangular in aspect with one side of the triangle completed by a hairline stroke.
'h' is evenly formed.
the head-loop is triangular in shape, again with one of its sides completed by a hairline stroke.
an 'h' from the top line where the scribe elongates some graphs.
at the beginning of a line so possibly the upper case graph which is no different from the lower case one.
long 'r' is used throughout in all positions.
at the end of the shoulder of 'r', a tiny upward flick when the 'r' is in final position.
'z'-shaped 'r' only follows 'o' on this folio.
a rounded version of upper case 'R'.
long 's' actually has quite a short stem. It is used in initial and medial positions.
a cross between a kidney-shaped 's' and an 8-shaped 's'. Used in final position as well as version 3.
this 's' with horizontal top stroke with slight upturn is used in final position.
'w' usually stands slightly above the level of surrounding graphs.
there is always a 'B'-shaped element at the right.
the upper case graph is the same as the lower case one.
the body of 'y' forms a square-shaped 'u' with the initiation of the tail stroke forming the base of the 'u' before curling back counter-clockwise.
the tail of 'y' sometimes extends backwards, connecting clumsily with the previous graph.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used for all the usual words as well as replacing 'th' on occasions.
yogh seems to be used as equivalent only to the 'g' in the 'gh' combination.
here yogh is used as equivalent to 'y'.
an interesting and individual graph for yogh with curved approach to the head, large upper element and more stunted tail.
