The History of the Ampersand
Jonny Gibson

My review of 14c and 15c architectural texts showed me a lot of “et c” which of course looks like etcetera and made me think of “and c” because of the “et” which I did know. I did not know what the “c” referred to but assumed it meant “more.” The hand written “etc” in these texts also frequently looked like a version of the ampersand. Do you have any light to shed on this one? Thanks, Will
