Dear reader. As many friends have asked, indeed demanded, my dear reader, that I, for the public good, not only of our time but for posterity as well, provide some examples of writing and instruction about the regular shaping of letters that nowadays are called chancery style, I have gladly undertaken this task; and as I couldn't provide enough examples by my own hand to satisfy all, I exerted myself with this new invention of letters and printed them, copying handwriting as closely as I could and, if they do not match it at every point, ask you to forgive me, as the press cannot entirely represent the living hand; still I hope that by following my instruction you will reach your goal. Enjoy life and health.
