Notes:

Figures 164 to 166 show alphabets of Gothic pen-drawn capitals that will serve as a basis for such adaptations as are shown in the modern examples 152 and 153. (p. 140)

Giovanni Battista Palatino was born in 1515 and died in 1575 (roughly); his examples of calligraphy and scripts, and his writing manual, are very valuable for the insights they give us into the development of writing, and for their influence on modern typography.
