This sampler features the early Latin alphabet, which often lacked the letters J and U. I represented both I and J, and V denoted both V and U before the sixteenth century. These alphabets were copied from contemporary books on grammar, such as Charles Gildon and John Brightland’s A Grammar of the English Tongue (1711), which was the first guide to feature ornate alphabets especially for samplers.
