'Schreibmeisterbuch für Herzog Wolfgang Wilhelm von Pfalz-Neuburg' [Cod. icon 466] by Baldericus van den Horick, 1600s is online at MDZ. (Duke of Pfalz-Neuburg's Master Scribe Book)

Pen and ink on paper with writing in Latin, Spanish, French, Dutch and Italian accompanied of course by figurative calligraphy. The catalogue page [trans.] doesn't give too much by way of background information.

About half or a little more of the manuscript images have been posted above. The majority of these have been lightly spot/stain cleaned.
