Dear Colleagues,

One possible source of help is a neat book edited by Letitia Yeandle
(Folger) and Jean Preston (Princeton) -- English Handwriting 1400-1650:
An Introductory Manual. The book includes a very helpful introduction,
31 plates, with transcriptions and notes, and a number of alphabets. I
found it immensely helpful when I was working on some early 17th-century
documents. And unlike most paleography manuals, it's not expensive.

See www.pegpress.org for further information.

Just a note to express my gratitude to Al Magary for his advice on
secretary hand.  Especially wonderful is the site:

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

I confess to having given up in frustration and despondency during a
particularly tedious course in paleography a couple of years ago.  I
never expected to be inspired to have another try, but this website has
enticed me.  Thanks, Al.
