What an interesting book detailing the history of handwriting and how to read it. Puts the different styles into context and gives practical exercises on reading it. I'm a complete newcomer to Paleography but found this book enlightening and it helped me with my local history reading old texts at the Suffolk Records Office. I also recommend Ison's "A Secretary Hand ABC Book" which is great for taking with you to interpret c17th and c16th handwriting.
