Identifying unused Gothic characters
Member Ref… posted a topic in TalkHello fellow typophiles, I'm hoping you can help name these characters! (And do they have unicode support, I wonder!) The type is from Erhard Ratdolt's Psalterium puerorum (Venice: 1486 or earlier) In the first image, they are evidently (left-right) t u/v x y and z (or yogh?) - but what are the others? Is one a Tironian Ond, or something other? In the second image, there is superscript '9'. An apostrophe contraction, or something other again? I've attached another image (from Ratdolt's 1486 Index characterum diversarum) which shows some of the the letters in a written context.
