Artist's Description

Actually more usually referred to as the Bastard Secretary. This may seem a slight by modern term, but traditionally Batarde, Bastarde, etc were only admonished as, at most, ill gotten gain, the best of two worlds or cultures. Thus several Western Scripts carry this nomenclature to indicate a merge of unrelated hands or scripts in order to achieve a hybrid refinement.

At times and when dictation is applied this hand could very quickly turn quite hard to cipher, yet many refinements were made, and variations of it continued as the Secretary or Law Hand until the 1800s.
