Reading 17th Century Handwriting

These are the handouts for the workshop, “Reading 17th Century Handwriting: Bradford’s Journal.”

First is a single page illustrating the letter forms used by Bradford.  It is highly recommended that workshop participants print this out and have it available for reference during the workshop.

Bradford’s Letter Forms

Second is a 13 page PDF containing the reading selections.  We may not get to all of these during the workshop.  Whatever we don’t get to can be used for further practice at home.

If you are attending the workshop on a small screen, like a tablet or small laptop, you will want to print these out to make them easier to read.
