The month names

Here is a reproduction of the month names on the "zodiac" pages:


This hand drawing is based on 150dpi grayscale images, reportedly scanned from photocopies which may have been second generation or more. Thus the character shapes and spacing should be correct to within a few pixels; but don't trust the fine details. For one thing, the fainter details were washed out in the image. Moreover I used a pencil, whereas the original was in ink; so the "feel" of the letters is not quite right.

To the best of my knowledge, the original photocopies were legal and not subject to the Beinecke Library restrictions. However I am not sure (yet) whether I can post the scanned image, so the drawing will have to do for now.
