What is the document and where and when is it from?  Someone might have

Try:

--Dave Postles' Early Modern Paleography course:
http://paleo.anglo-norman.org/empfram.html

--The CERES English Handwriting 1500-1700 course:
http://www.english.cam.ac.uk/ceres/ehoc/

--Teach Yourself Secretary Hand:
http://www.english.ltsn.ac.uk/learninglink/results/results.asp?sample=44

--perhaps the French tutorials at
http://www.ccr.jussieu.fr/urfist/menestrel/paleo/07tutoriels.htm

Wish I were brave enough to learn but blackletter printing has already
ruined my eyesight.

Cheers,
Al Magary
