Palaeographia Latina, Vol. 1 free pdf Excerpt from Palaeographia Latina, Vol. 1 Wattenbach's account of the development of Latin script was very useful in its day. Here I attempt to bring it (or part of it) up to date. For the form of the letters I refer the reader to the facsimiles in Sir E. M. Thompson's Introduction to Greek and Latin Palaeography (a book which every reader of this journal is sure to have) since the only satisfactory plan is to shew the form actually used by a scribe in a word. Where this book failed me, the Keeper of the MSS. in the British Museum came to my aid and gave me spare copies of as many suitable Palaeographical Society plates as he could lay his hands on. From these (only six, alas!) 1 have cut out the words photographed in the appended Plate I (nos. 1-20). Where neither of these two means was possible, I fell back on Wattenbach's plan and imitated the letter-forms with my own hand (nos. 21 sqq.). In writing this account I have sought to help (l) palaeographers, by supplying suitable names under which this or that form can be referred to (e. g. 'cursive Insular e'), and (2) Latin scholars, by shewing what letters and ligatures of letters were most easily mistaken by medieval transcribers. By the symbol 'Introd.' is meant Sir E. M. Thompson's book- by 'Ir. Min.' and 'Wei. Scr.', my two booklets (now published by Mr. Milford) on Early Irish Minuscule and on Early Welsh Script- by 'Not. Lat.' my Notae Latinae. The others will be easily understood (e. g. 'Rev. Bibl.' for the Revue des Bibliotheques). About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
