Coordinated by Rita Marquilhas, Lisbon: Centro de Linguística da Universidade de Lisboa, 2012. The website presents two letter editing projects: (1) Project CARDS - Cartas Desconhecidas, Unknown Letters, aims on publishing c. 2000 private letters from 1500-1900. "The whole set is constituted by a majority of letters from court proceedings, and a minority (10%) of letters from aristocratic family archives." (2) Project FLY - Forgotten Letters, Years 1900-1974, concerns another sample of 2000 private letters "written in the contexts of war, migration, imprisonment and exile". The edition(s) provide facsimiles, transcriptions, TEI-XML-files (following the DALF-DTD), and PDF export as well as documentation, registers and indexes designed to cover questions of syntax, phonology, pragmatics, cultural and socio-political history, and sociology. It offers very clear browsing structures and good search facilities.

Electronic Variorum Edition of the Quixote (EVE-DQ)

Directed by Eduardo Urbina, College Station (TX), Texas A&M University, 1998-. [On the "Virtual Editor" of EVE-DQ:] "This interface allows users to compose virtual editions of the Quixote. The copies of all editions in the variorum have been collated and all variants have been identified, classified and annotated. Users can select editions and chapters and then access the unedited text (documentary text) or the same text edited by a particular editor.
Users may customize the virtual variorum edition by selecting categories of variants and inclusion of annotations and/or emendations to compose their own editions. The existing variants and emended texts are color coded according to their categories. Cli[c]king on any of the variants, emendations and annotations opens another window showing their specific details and information.
The unedited text shows only the variants resulting from the collation between the base text and all other copies. Clicking on the highlighted variants shows the complete list of variants present on the collation. Users can click on the Folio numbers shown in the text to navigate to the browsing display to further check readings in the facsimile editions" [from resource]

Henrik Ibsens skrifter (Henrik Ibsen's Writings)

Directed by Vigdis Ystad, Oslo, University of Oslo, 1998-. "Henrik Ibsens skrifter (HIS) er en historisk-kritisk utgave. Dette innebærer for det første at utgaven har som mål å presentere alt kjent skriftlig materiale fra Ibsens hånd i historisk-autentisk form, og videre at den derfor følger nærmere definerte retningslinjer og standarder for tekstkritikk og ord- og sakkommentarer. Disse standardene skiller seg fra dem som er fulgt i tidligere tekstkritiske utgaver av Ibsen. Henrik Ibsens skrifter er tidligere (2005–10) kommet ut i en trykt utgave (HISb). Bokutgaven begrenses til å inneholde ederte hovedtekster med ord- og sakkommentarer, innledninger, tekstkritiske redegjørelser og manuskriptbeskrivelser. For en nærmere redegjørelse for spesifikke prinsipper for bokutgaven (blant annet ordning av materialet), se bokutgavens bind 17, Utgavens retningslinjer. Den elektroniske utgaven (HISe) inneholder i tillegg til alt materiale fra bokutgaven samtlige tekstkilder til de ederte tekstene, det vil si alle manuskripter og alle trykte utgaver i dikterens levetid. Tekstkildene gjengis i diplomatarisk (bokstavrett) transkripsjon. Grunntekstene (i de fleste tilfeller førstetrykkene) og manuskriptene ledsages av faksimiler der dette har vært mulig å oppdrive. Tekstkildene kan stilles opp ved siden av hverandre slik at variasjonen mellom dem blir synlig. Feil i og tilleggsopplysninger til HISb står i en liste over Errata i HISe." [from resource]

Vincent van Gogh - The Letters

Ed. by Leo Jansen, Hans Luijten and Nienke Bakker, Den Haag, Huygens Institute, 2012. "All the surviving letters written and received by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) are contained in this edition of his correspondence. [... It] include[s] not only complete facsimiles, but also the texts of Van Gogh’s letters in a parallel reading text version that retains the line breaks of the originals, a reading text version with continuous text, and a new English translation that renders the meaning of the original as faithfully as possible and is consequently not literary or interpretive.
The commentary, and in particular the annotations, is as complete as possible and as exhaustive as [...] was necessary to clarify the content of the letters – sometimes in a very nuanced or detailed manner – for modern readers. [The editors] have as far as possible identified Van Gogh’s literary and visual sources and illustrated all the works of art that could be traced. [...] The twofold objective behind all this was to publish Van Gogh’s letters as he wrote and intended them, and to place the correspondence as a whole in its historical context. The introductory chapters likewise serve this purpose." [from resource]

De geannoteerde brieven bevatten o.m. verwijzingen naar bijna 2.500 personen, 500 plaatsnamen, 1.000 titels van boeken, 650 tijdschriftartikelen en 350 gedichten. Een netwerk van 3.600 hyperlinks maakt een intuïtief en associatief gebruik van het corpus mogelijk.
Het corpus omvat behalve een kritische en een diplomatische transcriptie van alle bronnen ook een gedetailleerde beschrijving van alle relevante metadata en meer dan 3.000 digitale facsimile-afbeeldingen." [from resource]
"This fully eXist-driven web interface allows users to browse, search, view, and export the encoded letters or custom selections of letters in various formats: XHTML, XML, PDF. The letters can be visualized as reading text, diplomatic transcription, or XML source view, and facsimiles are offered where available. Most of these 1500 letters are in Dutch (180 are in French), and all of them deal with the Flemish literary journal 'Van Nu en Straks' (1893-1901). The encoding of the letters follows the DALF Guidelines for the Description and Encoding of Modern Correspondence Material (see ), a customization of the TEI P4 Guidelines. So far, all information in the edition is in Dutch. An English version of the edition interface is available." [from mail to Hmanist Discussion Group]
