Elizabethan handwriting 1500-1650 : a manual

New York, Norton & Company, 1966
(26.5 cm), ix (1), 130 pp., illustrations. Publisher’s cloth, dust jacket. - A practical handbook for anyone required to read Elizabethan manuscripts. Each of the fifty full-page reproductions is faced with a transcription; the reproductions are arranged in chronological order. “A particularly useful book for help with the sixteenth century hands which can prove the most troublesome for students of provenance who are primarily concerned with printed books” (David Pearson, Provenance research in book history: a handbook, London 1994, pp.296-297). ¶ Dust jacket lightly soiled. Very good copy.
