From the Back Cover:

A Guide to Western Historical Scripts from Antiquity to 1600 is a much-needed survey of the evolution of scripts and introduction to reading historical documents, extensively illustrated from a wide range of manuscripts. Fifty-five full-page plates give examples of the major western scripts in broadly chronological sequence, each accompanied by a commentary identifying the type of script, its historical and regional currency, distinctive features and style, and a transcription. With an introductory essay and select bibliography, fully revised and updated for this new paperback edition, this is an important and authoritative introduction to the subject.

From the Inside Flap:

'What the book represents, in essence, is a mini correspondence course in palaeography. ... In a clear and coherent manner, moreover, Brown describes the function of various national hands and how they developed one from the other. ...An untrained student or interested researcher might use the texts and transcriptions as a means of developing expertise before embarking on a program of research'
