ML - Manuscript Large

medium manscriptOddly enough, I named this set "Manuscript Large" yet the rule in this set is a mere (just over) 5/8", 1.6 cm. This set, as it is today, could be considered a refresher back to school course or a first-learner set because each lesson features only one letter for the entire printed sheet.
