 18th Century Copperplate Handwriting
Such was the success of copperplate that by the end of the 18th century it had been adopted in France (where it has coexisted with ronde), Spain, and Italy.
Learning 18th century copperplate handwriting is a matter of learning to write the capital letters (called majuscules by calligraphers and "upper case" by printers), the small letters (minuscules or "lower case"), as well as the numbers and a few symbols (shown in Figures 1, 2, and 4).
Educated people of the 18th century copied these examples to improve their handwriting; an exact reproduction of the examples in the copybooks represented an ideal, a polar star, by which the student was guided; however, like modern handwriting, everyday 18th century handwriting seldom rose to the level of "calligraphy".
