A Supplement to Notae Latinae : Abbreviations in Latin MSS. of 850 to 1050 AD Paperback / softback
by Doris Bains
Originally published in 1936, this book is intended to supplement W.
M. Lindsay's Notae Latinae of 1915, which examined Latin abbreviations of the early minuscule period (circa 700-850 AD).
Bains reviews symbols employed in the following two centuries, as well as a few which were developed more fully as a result of the rise of learning and science in the twelfth century.
This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in palaeography.
