Egerton 3314 f. 73v Hands
Hands
Description: Diagrams of hands, with signs of pricking visible, as if for pouncing. Gaps in the text, such as in the second line of text, are probably present because of the intended alternation in the colours of initials, but no green or other colour initials were executed. For example, a guide letter 'e' is visible in the margin adjacent to the final line, for which no initial was executed. 
Origin: England, S. E. (Canterbury)
