Jane Austen’s Fiction Manuscripts Digital Edition

Ed. by Kathryn Sutherland et al., London, Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College London, 2011. "The Jane Austen’s Fiction Manuscripts Digital Edition gathers together in the virtual space of the web some 1100 pages of fiction written in Jane Austen’s own hand. Through digital reunification, it is now possible to access, read, and compare high quality images of original manuscripts whose material forms are scattered around the world in libraries and private collections. [...] The main resources in the digital edition are the manuscripts themselves, accessed through the manuscript menu and grouped chronologically and according to their material states as fair copies (the Juvenilia and Lady Susan), working drafts (The Watsons, Persuasion, Sanditon), and further materials. Each manuscript can be opened in a variety of ways: as facsimile pages which can be magnified using ‘zoomify’; as transcribed text set side by side with the original manuscript page; or through a Headnote that provides details of the manuscript’s history and physical description."

Samuel Beckett - Digital Manuscript Project

Directed by Dirk Van Hulle and Mark Nixon, Samuel Beckett Digital Manuscript Project, Brussels, University Press Antwerp et al., 2011. Contains the genetic editions "Stirrings Still / Soubresauts" and "Comment dire / what is the word".
"The Beckett Digital Manuscript Project [...] started from two initiatives: (1) the 'in-house' genetic edition of four works by Samuel Beckett, and (2) the Series of Variorum Editions of Samuel Beckett's Bilingual Works, initiated in 1986 by Charles Krance [... . T]hese initiatives were developed into the Beckett Digital Manuscript Archive, which combines genetic criticism with electronic scholarly editing, applied to the study of Beckett's manuscripts. The Beckett Digital Manuscript Project consists of two parts:
(a) a digital archive of Samuel Beckett's manuscripts, organized in 26 research modules. Each of these modules comprises digital facsimiles and transcriptions of all the extant manuscripts pertaining to an individual text, or in the case of shorter texts, a group of texts. (b) a series of 26 volumes, analyzing the genesis of the texts contained in the corresponding modules.
The Beckett Digital Manuscript Project aims to contribute to the study of Beckett's works in various ways: by enabling readers to discover new documents and see how the dispersed manuscripts of different holding libraries interrelate within the context of a work's genesis in its entirety; by increasing the accessibility of the manuscripts with searchable transcriptions in an updatable digital archive; by highlighting the interpretive relevance of intertextual references that can be found in the manuscripts. [... T]he project brings together digital facsimiles of documents that are now preserved in different holding libraries, and adds transcriptions of Beckett's manuscripts, tools for bilingual and genetic version comparison, a search engine, and an analysis of the textual genesis of his works."

Beecher-Stowe, Harriet: Uncle Tom’s Cabin and American Culture

Directed by Stephen Railton, Charlottesville (VA), University of Virginia, 1998-2007. Vom Selbstverständnis her ein digitales Archiv, das eine ganze Reihe verschiedener Materialen zusammenbringt. Diese können über drei Modi (Browse Mode, Search Mode, Interpret Mode) erreicht werden. Zu den Inhalten gehören Pre-Texts, der Werktext, Informationen über die verschiedenen Ausgaben, Rezensionen und Reaktionen, Musikstücke, Aufführungen, didaktische Hilfsmittel (Zeitleiste, "Interpretative Exhibits", "Lesson Plans", ) usw. usf. Was fehlt ist eine kritische Textfassung, die die Varianz der Ausgaben berücksichtigen würde. Ansonsten handelt es sich hier aber tatsächlich um ein breit kontextualisiertes, wahrhaft multimediales Archiv.

The Alexander Graham Bell Family Papers

Presented by the Library of Congress, Washington D.C., 2000.

Für die Abbildungen wird ein "Java-Image-Sizer" verwendet, der nicht nur eine Größeneinstellung erlaubt, sondern auch die Kalibrierung des Monitors unterstützt, um die korrekte Wiedergabe der Farben zu ermöglichen. Zu den Werkzeugen gehört weiterhin ein Annotationstool (Inote), mit dem die Inhalte kommentiert werden können.

The Diplomatic Correspondence of Thomas Bodley, 1585-1597

Edited and directed by Robyn Adams, Version 5, Centre for Editing Lives and Letters, University College London, 2011. "The letters of Thomas Bodley relating to his diplomatic activity between 1585-97 will be released in chronological sections. This is Version 5 of the edition. This Version comprises incoming and outgoing letters written in English between Thomas Bodley and his correspondents during the years 1585-97. This edition [...] pioneers a unique transcription method. The letters have been encoded in such a way as to permit readers to custom-build their own transcripts, according to their research preferences. For instance, a general reader may wish to view the letters in their complete, non-abbreviated form, while a scholar interested in orthographic and material features of the period will want to see these reproduced in the transcripts. [...] Customisable transcripts enable the reader to engage with the text according to their own research needs. Users will be able to mediate the texts to their own specification. Citation of the transcripts takes into account the alternative elements available to view or mask. " [from resource 9/2013]

British War Poetry in the Age of Romanticism 1793-1815

Ed. by Orianne Smith, A Romantic Circles Electronic Edition, College Park (MD), University of Maryland, o.D. "This electronic edition is not a facsimile of the original print edition [from 1976]. Some changes have been necessary in order to make the transition from a print to an electronic version. Hyperlinking and the structures of organization made possible by HTML markup are the most obvious changes. In addition, some footnotes have been slightly updated. The edition will we hope continue to evolve in later iterations. Eventually, we plan to produce an XML version at Romantic Circles that will be accessible and useable in more flexible, database-driven searches of these poems—as well as additional poems that could be aggregated by that time."

Lord Byron and his Times

Ed. by David Hill Radcliffe, Blacksburg (VA), Center for Applied Technologies in the Humanities (CATH), 2011. "LBT is a growing digital archive of books, pamphlets, and periodical essays illustrating the causes and controversies that preoccupied Byron and his contemporaries.

[...]
Documents made available through a Creative Commons license so that they can be freely circulated and reused for other purposes with only an acknowledgement of the source. As the semantic web develops in the years to come LBT will strive for integration with the expanding network of romantic texts on the internet, underscoring the social dimension of social-text editing."

A Social Edition of the Devonshire MS (BL Add 17,492)

Ed. by Ray Siemens and the Devonshire MS editorial group, Victoria (BC), University of Victoria, 2012. "The social edition is a work that brings communities together to engage in conversation around a text formed and reformed through an ongoing, iterative, public editorial process. Ray Siemens has called for scholars 'to extend our understanding of the scholarly edition in light of new models of edition production that embrace social networking and its commensurate tools… [to develop] the social edition as an extension of the traditions in which it is situated and which it has the potential to inform productively'. Bringing practice to theory, we have modeled the social edition, working as a team to extend scholarly best practice and open-access methodology to collaborative technologically mediated scholarly editing in Web 2.0 environments. We have chosen to build our edition Wikibooks, alongside (and with help from) the dedicated Wikibooks community. Our goal, through community engagement via Wikibooks, twitter, blogs, and drupal-based social media space, is to use existing social media tools to change the role of the scholarly editor from the sole authority on the text to a facilitator who brings traditional and citizen scholars into collaboration through ongoing editorial conversation."

The Model Edition Partnership: The Frederick Douglass Papers

Project lead by John R. McKivigan, Indianapolis (IN), Indiana University / Purdue University, 1999-2003. Unter einem Paradigma des "documentary editing" sind insgesamt 12 "Mini-Editions" von hauptsächlich archivischem Material (z.B. Nachlassdokumente) entstanden. Davon bieten neun ausgezeichnete Volltexte, zwei basieren auf digitalen Abbildungen und eine enthält Volltexte und Abbildungen. Die Texte sind in SGML/XML ausgezeichnet, die Darstellung der Editionen greift teilweise auf XML/SGML-Browser (wie z.B. Dynaweb) zurück. Die einzelnen Editionen legen leicht unterschiedliche Schwerpunkte und benutzen teilweise unterschiedliche technische Lösungen. Einige haben in den letzten Jahren Erweiterungen und Relaunches erfahren und sind damit aus den "Mini-Editions" herausgewachsen.

Thomas A. Edison Papers

Ed. by Paul Israel et al., Newark (NJ), Rutgers University, 2005-. "The Digital Edition presents the documentary resources of the Edison Papers to greater advantage and to a much wider and more diverse audience than the book and microfilm editions. Nearly 180,000 document images are now available in digital format. Currently, the Digitial Edition includes documents scanned from Parts I-III of the Microfilm Edition, along with items from Outside Repositories, including private collections. [...] the Digital Edition provides powerful search capabilities enabling users to search for authors, recipients, and names mentioned in a database of 124,000 document records and 20,300 names. The database also includes documents from Part IV and Part V (in-progress) of the microfilm edition as well as material from the Outside Repositories that have been indexed but not yet digitized. Another feature enables users to search for words and phrases appearing in the approximately 4,000 targets (descriptive introductions) to the folders and volumes. Through the series notes, the edition provides links to targets at the series, subseries, and folder or volume levels. It also provides a list (with linked images) of all records in a particular folder or volume when the associated target is brought to the screen." [from resource]

The Fleischmann Diaries

Ed. by Róisín O'Brien, Cork: Cork Open Research Archive 2013. "'Digitising the Diaries of Aloys Fleischmann: a prototype for novices' is a thesis project undertaken by Róisín O’Brien, with the collaboration of the Fleischmann family and under the guidance of practitioners, as part of a Masters in Digital Arts and Humanities at University College Cork (UCC), Ireland.
The project involved the digitisation of the 1926 and 1927 diaries of the late German-born Irish composer, Aloys Fleischmann (1910 – 1992). In addition to digital preservation, the aim of the Fleischmann Diaries project was to create a freely available digitisation prototype for scholars and non-practitioners, providing them with a reproducible model. The project focused on digital photography and the online publication of the digitised archive. Future expansion will consist of metadata development, which will transform the site into an enhanced scholarly resource. A supporting dissertation, documenting the technical process and establishing a theoretical basis, will be issued as an Open Access publication at the Cork Open Research Archive in November 2013."

The Diary of William Godwin

Ed. by Victoria Myers, David O'Shaughnessy and Mark Philp, Oxford, Oxford Digital Library, 2010.
"Godwin’s diary consists of 32 octavo notebooks [...] [with entries from] 6 April 1788 [...] [to] 26 March 1836. [...] The diary is a resource of immense importance to researchers of history, politics, literature, and women’s studies. It maps the radical intellectual and political life of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, as well as providing extensive evidence on publishing relations, conversational coteries, artistic circles and theatrical production over the same period. One can also trace the developing relationships of one of the most important families in British literature [...] [and m]any of the most important figures in British cultural history feature in its pages.
The diary has been transcribed and encoded so that it is fully searchable. High resolution scanned images of the diary are also provided."
"The project has sought to code the diary so as to retain the richness and diversity of the information. Each element in a day’s entry has been coded so as to distinguish what Godwin read, what he wrote, whom he saw, where he saw them, in what activities or meals they shared, and where he went."

The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Ben Jonson

Ed. by David Bevington et al., Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2012. "The [...] edition [...] offers a complete re-editing of the entire Jonsonian canon, and aims to supersede the monumental Oxford Ben Jonson of C. H. Herford and Percy and Evelyn Simpson published between 1925 and 1952. The Cambridge Ben Jonson takes account of recently discovered works by Jonson, and offers the first complete edition of Jonson in electronic form. In addition, the Cambridge Ben Jonson is shaped by new research on the ordering and arrangement of the canon, and its editorial policy reflects revisionary thinking on Jonsonian copy-texts. [...] The Cambridge Ben Jonson will appear initially in two related formats. A six-volume print edition will present a modernized text of the complete works [...] in chronological order, with annotation at the foot of the page and full scholarly apparatus. [...] The electronic edition, to be published simultaneously as a CD-ROM or via the Internet, will feature the entire contents of the print edition along with a range of early manuscripts and print texts - including the early quartos, 1616 and 1640/1 folios and 1640 duodecimo. The electronic edition will enable to search the entire canon for the first time, in original or modernised spelling. Additional archival material (including life records, stage history, masque records, and early allusions) will also be incorporated and fully searchable, together with a comprehensive Jonson bibliography. Importantly, the electronic original-spelling edition will be hypertextually cross-referenced with the modernized edition, allowing readers to make textual comparisons at the click of a button."

- a Livingstone spectral image archive that digitally preserves all the pages of Livingstone’s 1870 and 1871 Field Diaries as high-resolution spectral images with full metadata, and so that allows direct access to all the primary Livingstone data on which this critical edition is based; and
- a webpage that allows comparison between the original 1871 Field Diary, the highly revised 1872 Journal created by Livingstone, and the further revised 1874 book posthumously produced by Livingstone’s friend, Horace Waller;
- critical, textual, and historical essays and notes;
- a detailed project history and archive that chronicles the fascinating journey of Livingstone’s words from the "rediscovery" of the faded diary in 2009 to its publication today as the first significant nineteenth-century British literary manuscript to be enhanced with spectral imaging and processing. The project archive contains over 60 downloadable documents and files produced in the course of the project that collectively provide an intimate and comprehensive look into the production of this critical edition" [from resource]

The Newton Project

Ed. by Rob Iliffe and Scott Mandelbrote, Falmer, University of Sussex, 1998-. "Our aim is to make it possible, for the first time in history, to grasp the organic unity of Newton's writing by garnering all his astonishingly diverse productions into a single, freely accessible electronic edition. [...] This is not simply a matter of automated electronic reproduction. Newton's texts have been painstakingly transcribed from their original handwritten versions and electronically encoded in a form that allows users to view all the additions, deletions and other revisions that went into the creation of each document. Alternatively, the texts can be viewed in 'normalised' versions that are easier to read and closer to a traditional edition. [...] We are also providing digitised images of the original manuscripts, to enable users to verify the accuracy of our transcriptions for themselves. The result is a completely new type of edition, in which the editorial process is far more transparent than the medium of print permits." [from resource]

[Walt Whitman:] Crossing Brookly Ferry

Created by Jesse Merandy, Mickel Street Review 19/20 (2008) "In many ways, Whitman’s ability to bond with his reader is what makes 'Crossing Brooklyn Ferry' one of his most enduring and often anthologized works: it is a connection that opens a window into the mind of the poet; a portal that transports us back to his life and times; and an invitation to stop for a moment and look again at the world around us from a different perspective, one that makes visible the interconnectedness of all humans and our environment across time and space.
This online critical edition looks to build on the importance of these connections and present users with a chance to view 'Crossing Brooklyn Ferry' from new vistas. It is an opportunity to interact, to play, and discover what can be learned about Whitman and his work through interactive, media-rich approaches. In the end, whether you need a guide for your first voyage or are returning and seek the companionship of an old Comrade, this site hopes to provide something for all whitmaniacs on their passage across the river.
The following are offered in this critical edition: Close Reading (Click on links to criticism, commentary, and multimedia resources [...]), Edition Evolution (Track the changes Whitman made to 'Crossing Brooklyn Ferry' over his lifetime), Edition Comparisons (View versions of 'Crossing Brooklyn Ferry' side-by-side), Walking with Whitman (Brooklyn audio walking tour tracks Walt's footsteps), Resources (Reading list and online sources utilized in the creation of The Crossing Brooklyn Ferry Online Critical Edition)" [from resource]

From Goslar to Grasmere. William Wordsworth: Electronic Manuscripts

Jeff Cowton (Curator), Sally Bushell and Richard Light, Lancaster: Lancaster University, 2008. "From Goslar to Grasmere is a collaborative project between Lancaster University and The Wordsworth Trust. It involves manuscript materials for two Wordsworth texts (early Prelude material and Home at Grasmere) which are both about the importance of place to the writing of poetry – either in escaping from a hostile environment through writing poetry that draws on memories of place, or in celebrating a final home-coming to the Lakes. [...] The website is designed to have three levels of access: as a specialist; as an ordinary user; for educational use. Understanding the nature of the creative process is something of interest to all of us. In relation to children, in particular, the accessible presentation of the way in which a poem is written and re-written, will help them in developing their own writing. The primary objective of the project is to explore imaginative ways of presenting manuscript materials in hypertext and by means of TEI and to create an accessible way of understanding those materials for a wide audience."

The Sermon of the Wolf to the English was composed by Wulfstan II, Archbishop of York and Bishop of Worcester, in approximately AD 1014, under the pseudonym Lupus. All five redactions of the text, plus analogous materials and a critically edited text and translation are presented here." [from resource]
