5.0 out of 5 stars Secretary hand ABC 20 Feb 2010
A very good book for the beginner ona very difficult subject. The examples of wills etc. given were most useful. One could check one's work in progress.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful for palaeography beginners 14 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm studying palaeography as part of my university course, and I've found the book useful in identifying letter forms and working out the differences between certain letters. Also has example documents in the back plus transcriptions, which are useful for practice! Not suitable for teaching yourself palaeography in itself, but great for providing some extra help as part of a structured course.

4.0 out of 5 stars How the written English language developed. 1 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great help when reading dry and dusty (literally) old documents written in English, not necessarily as we recognise it today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good reference book 5 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good to use as a quick reference if in difficulties with old texts and also useful to familiarise yourself with the general styles of the period beforehand.
