             Subject: Latin abbreviation font

    I am looking for a font that has the standard abbreviations used in
    medieval writing systems that use the Latin alphabet, e.g., p with a bar
    through the tail, all letters of the alphabet with a superimposed
    abbreviation bar, the Tironian note, -ur, -us, and -rum signs, etc.

    These are the sorts of things that one used to see in the old-fashinoned
    catalogues of incunabula that attempted to offer type facsimiles.

    Many thanks,
