the scribes uses both single and double compartment versions of this graph. The upper lobe of anglicana 'a' stands above the level of surrounding graphs on most occasions.
single compartment 'a' which is used alongside the double compartment version.
another example of the idiosyncratic proportions of this scribe's graphs.
upper case 'A' at the beginning of a line.
'd' in initial position. This example has an oval lower lobe but the scribe also has a more angular version.
'd' in final position.
'd' in final position at the end of a line with added flourish.
'd' in the middle of a word with more angular lobe abd loop arching back over the previous graph.
anglicana 'g' is used throughout.
there are a few peculiar 'g' graphs on this folio. Here 'g' is set on the line so stands above other graphs in the word. There are other examples of the same feature on this folio.
again the bottom compartment of the double 'g's are set at the level of the lower part of the lobe of the initial 'b' graph.
upper case 'G' at the beginning of a line. The vertical stroke descending through the left side of the graph is the down-stroke from the 'P' above.
'h' is fairly evenly copied.
'h' in final position. Probably the only 'h' graph on this folio which has the tail descending from the shoulder turning in a counter-clockwise direction.
'h' following 'g' still more or less of similar formation to version 1.
an example of 'h' in the 'ght' combination which is crossed. The 'g' graph is worth looking at for its precise stroke formation.
long 'r' used in all positions except after 'o'.
'r' in final position with tiny tag which is not necessarily present where 'r' is in final position. This line is followed by a punctus, but this is the only example.
two typical long 'r's in this example.
'z'-shaped 'r' after 'o'.
sigma 's' in initial position.
long 's' in initial position.
sigma 's' in final poition.
upper case 'S' as the first graph in the line.
'w' in initial position. The scribe forms 'w' evenly. It always stands above following graphs.
the scribe joins two words, seemingly continuing the 'd' of 'god' onto the 'w' of 'wote'.
'w' in medial position. 'w' is a graph which stands above surrounding graphs.
upper case 'w' at the beginning of a line.
shape of the 'y' graph. The difficulty with this scribe is that his thorn graph is almost identical with 'y'.
dotted 'y' in final position. It seems that the scribe regularly dots 'y' in final position.
'y' in medial position.
two more of the scribe's 'y's for scrutiny.
|Thorn and Yogh|
the thorn graph is very much like the 'y' graph. Thorn does have a small lead-in stroke to the left arm.
yogh appears only once on this folio. It would be worth analysing this scribe's usage of thorn and yogh because he may be at the cusp of scribes moving from ancient graphs to more modern versions.
the scribe constantly reproduces 'the' in this way with thorn and superscript 'e' to finish.
