Calligraphy book written in 1592 by John Scottowe. The book presents a calligraphic alphabet, each letter forming an elaborately decorated initial beginning a moral adage or other text, some in English and some in Latin, each in a different script. During the Renaissance, calligraphic manuals helped their owners to master the elegant handwriting valued by humanists while also imparting moral instruction.
