Universal Natural History and Theory of Heaven (An Exploration of the Constitution and the Mechanical Origin of the Entire Structure of the Universe Based on Newtonian Principles), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2521-1

Description:

The text contains links to Kant's footnotes, together with links to some additional footnotes provided by the translator. There are also occasional references to two earlier translators of Kant's text: Stanley L. Jaki and William Hastie. The translator of the present text would like to acknowledge the great help he has received from these two earlier translations.The original lines from Alexander Pope and Addison are used in those places where Kant quotes from the German translations of these English poets.The major purpose of this translation is to provide undergraduates a readily accessible version of Kant's work in a modern idiom. Hastie's translation, although very fluent, is seriously incomplete and in places suffers from a curious choice of words; and there are some odd errors of terminology. Jaki's translation is scrupulously faithful to Kant's text, but is doggedly literal and thus, in many places, very difficult to read, especially since it contains many denoted editorial insertions. These two translations clearly reflect the very different attitudes of the translators to Kant's work: Hastie is an enthusiastic apologist for Kant's scientific genius; Jaki, by contrast, believes the scientific value of Kant's work here has been seriously exaggerated (to say the least). I take no stand on this issue (which I am ill equipped to judge), and I refer anyone interested in the debate to consult Jaki's excellent introduction and detailed commentary on Kant's text. His remarks on Kant's theory in context are (for me) extremely persuasive. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Discourse context and the processing of contrastive focus in silent reading (datafiles), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2516-1

Description:

Words such as 'only' and 'even' indicate that a contrast is to be made between information that is given in a sentence and some alternatives. For example, a sentence such as 'Only Mary kissed John'? means that Mary kissed John but no-one else did. However, sentences that contain these words often have more than one possible meaning, depending on which part of the sentence is used to form the contrast. We conducted three experiments in which we analysed eye movements during reading to investigate skilled readers' understanding of sentences containing 'only'. The results demonstrated that skilled readers make rapid use of grammatical and contextual knowledge to select the appropriate meaning of a sentence, but that grammatical knowledge has the more important role. Although these findings are directly informative about skilled reading, they may also provide insights into problems that might be encountered by beginning readers or people with reading difficulty.

Gidian Archives (Gide Press Archive), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2509-1

Description:

Gidian Archives is a database created from the press cuttings preserved by André Gide in his personal collection. The archive consists of articles published during his life on the author's work, his person and his influence on the society and culture of his age. It is well known that the 'key contemporary', as Gide was called, represents an essential reference point for several generations of intellectuals. Thus the articles in Gidian Archives provide crucial evidence on the history of thought across half a century. In addition to press cuttings tracing the critical reception of each of Gide's works, the archives contain polemical articles on his cultural interventions, on his political commitments and on matters of contemporary concern. Through what his professional readers say about Gide it is possible to follow the careers of other writers who declared and defined their own thought in dialogue with his. Similarly, the evolution of periodicals which published texts on Gide can be traced by means of this key research tool. The interest of the collection extends well beyond Gide studies. The archive is rich in information on numerous aspects of the history of literature, society, culture, politics, ideology, etc., in the first half of the twentieth century. The Search Engine makes it possible to find articles on a given theme ('mots clefs') or an individual ('noms propes'). One can track down all the articles by a particular writer ('auteur') or published in a specific review ('Titre de la revue'). Similarly, items can be selected by date.

Early Stuart Libels: An Edition of Poetry from Manuscript Sources, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2492-1

Description:

In the early seventeenth century, libels were recognised as unauthorised and controversial texts, generally in poetic form, on a person or topical issue. Under the prevailing conditions of censorship, yet through decades in which English men and women became increasingly concerned about the state of their union, libels provided a forum at once for scurrilous and genuinely subversive discourse. For modern scholars of the period, they highlight the vital interaction between literary and political cultures in this era. 'Early Stuart Libels' publishes 350 libels, roughly 200 of which have never before been published. The poems are drawn from manuscript sources, held by libraries and record sources in the US, UK and the Republic of Ireland. The two co-editors of the edition had gathered texts of libels in the course of their parallel research projects, spanning roughly ten years. The aim of the edition, therefore, was to bring this material into the public domain, in a manner that combined scholarly values with the goal of wide dissemination.

Civilised Britain 43AD : prior to the Roman 'invasion', Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2421-1

Description:

This is a treatise on the identity of Britain during the years 55BC to 43AD and argues that the region south-east of the Jurassic Ridgeway rapidly became a client state of Rome after the departure of Julius Caesar. Although there were periods of internecine warfare amongst the individual tribes where various warlords held sway, by the time of Cunobelinus a client state relationship was well in hand which made it logical for the dispossessed son of Cunobelinus to seek aid after his father's death. Thus Aulus Plautius led only a small force to quell what was in fact a small rebellion. The fact that Claudius used the occasion to bolster his claim to the Empire was a completely separate issue.

Description:

This text seeks to explore Book IV of Horace's Odes not as isolated works of adulatory verse, but as a collection of subliminal vignettes on Roman society in the early days of the Principate. That they were written as individual items over a period of time, ranging from 13 BC. to 8 BC., is not disputed. That they were really intended by Horace as a complete entity in their own right is the primary argument of this work and is supported by a full translation, commentary and analysis of the Latin text in which the order of the odes has been reconstituted.

Sheffield Corpus of Chinese, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2481-1

Description:

The rudimentary form of the Sheffield Corpus of Chinese contains a limited body of representative texts from Medieval (MedC) and Modern Chinese (ModC) periods. They are of two text types: literary and non-literary. The MedC text 'Zhuzi Yulei' (ZZYL, Classified conversations of Master Zhu) by Zhu Xi (12th century) is a genre in its own right that is characteristic of sermons and dialogues in the vernacular and represents the Master's actual speech as recorded by his disciples. Texts like these are regarded as a reflection of planned monologue style that represents, if not truly natural speech, some of the most 'spoken-like' registers available from earlier historical periods (Biber et al 1998). the other two texts are ModC novels. The text 'Shuihu Zhuan' (SHZ, Tales of the Water Margin) is one of four most famous novels of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) that is recorded in a colloquial style compounded with oral conventions like descriptive passages in prose narrative (Hanan 1981). it is a very useful text for historical study of the Ming time. The other text 'Rulin Waishi' (RLWS, The Scholars) is one of the four great novels of the Quing Dynasty (1644-1911). Unlike SHZ, it avoided using standard poetic vocabulary, dialectical and slang terms and used classical terms only in the speeches of scholars. It is regarded as a landmark of Chinese literature for its conscious use of 'Guoyu' or a national vernacular (Hanan 1981). It is a very useful source for linguistic study of the Chinese language in the early Qing time. From each of the three texts, a chapter is selected and used in the SCC.

Discourse on the Origin and the Foundations of Inequality Among Men (Discours sur l'origine et les fondements de l'inégalité parmi les hommes. English), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2524-1

Description:

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), the famous French philosopher and writer, prepared his Discourse on Inequality (also called the Second Discourse) as an entry in a competition organized by the Academy of Dijon in 1754. He had won first prize in a previous competition (in 1750) with his Discourse on the Sciences and the Arts (the First Discourse), a victory which had helped to make him famous. The Second Discourse did not fare so well in the contest. When the Second Discourse was published again in 1782, Rousseau inserted a few short minor additions into the text. These are included here but are not indicated. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Cognition, Biology and Idealist Philosophy, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2520-1

Description:

The basic philosophy of mainstream biology, the philosophy of materialist realism, assumes the existence of a material world independent of human observation and cognition. The scientific study of cognition in the context of biology has, however, led to the result, that all our thoughts and cognitions, including the assumption of a material world, are dependent on our cognitive apparatus in its present stage of evolution. I think this shows a contradiction within materialist philosophy, and I therefore find it is impossible to make a contradiction free account of cognition based on this philosophy. An account of natural science, biological evolution, and cognition based on an idealist philosophy is offered, and it is argued, that this account is free of contradictions. In the idealist philosophy 'material objects' are regarded as concepts based on sensory experiences. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Correspondences: Jewish Mysticism, Indian Philosophies, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

Description:

The authors found correspondence of several significant traits of Jewish mysticism with traits of Buddhism and other systems of Indian religion and philosophy in the literature. Among the corresponding traits is the fundamental idea of emptiness or nothingness, shuunyataa in Sanskrit, ayin in Hebrew. Also corresponding are attempts to harmonise the idea and experience of emptiness with fullness, and with the experience of the secular world with its many things and concepts. They list eight significant traits of Jewish mysticism, which are found to correspond with traits of Indian religion-philosophies. This is of course a study in comparative religion, but some important relations between these Indian and Jewish belief systems with modern science are also discussed.

Description:

At the time of the production of this play, Athens and her allies have been at war with Sparta and her allies (from 431-404 BC with some brief interludes). Things have not gone so well for Athens. Indeed, in 411 there was a brief oligarchic coup. And in 404, just a year after this play was produced, Sparta will support a second coup by another oligarchic group called the Thirty, thus bringing the war to an ill end for the Athenians. Aristophanes has Dionysos seeking a way to restore Athens to her former glory through a revival of tragedy. After the deaths of Euripides in 405 BC and Sophocles immediately after, the future of tragedy seemed dark. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

The Clouds, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2497-1

Description:

The Clouds was first produced in the drama festival in Athens-the City Dionysia-in 423 BC, where it placed third. Subsequently the play was revised, but the revisions were never completed. The text which survives is the revised version, which was apparently not performed in Aristophanes' time but which circulated in manuscript form. This revised version does contain some anomalies which have not been fully sorted out (e.g., the treatment of Cleon, who died between the original text and the revisions). At the time of the first production, the Athenians had been at war with the Spartans, off and on, for a number of years. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

'Der Tum' is a German poem dedicated to the virgin Mary, composed by Heinrich von Mügeln in the mid of the 14th century. Containing allegorical and typological images for the incarnation of Christ, it is written in an elaborated rhetorical style ('geblümter Stil') that follows Latin models. The 72 strophes correspond to the medieval conception of the 72 languages of mankind. Besides the general mariological topic the poem deals with contemporaneous questions of poetology and language theory: how can the mystery of the incarnation be expressed by human language?

Description:

The York-Helsinki corpus of Old English poetry is a selection of poetic texts from the Old English section of the Helsinki corpus of English texts, annotated to facilitate searches on syntactic structure and lexical items. It is intended for the use of students and scholars of the history of the English language. The corpus contains 71,490 words of Old English text; the samples from the longer texts are 4,000 to 17,000 words in length. The texts represent a range of dates of composition and authors. The texts are syntactically and morphologically annotated. The size of the corpus is approximately 2.5 megabytes. The syntactic annotations enable the use to pose and answer questions about word order, consituent order, abstract structure, and syntactic and morphological characteristics of the texts in the corpus. The annotations are general-purpose and as theory-neutral as possible, while still incorporationg the insights of modern linguistic theory; they can be used by scholars with widely varying research interests. The best way to search the corpus is by using CorpusSearch, a search engline developed specifically for corpora annotated in this format.

Idealist Philosophy, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2501-1

Description:

The paper expounds an idealist ontology stating that only conscious experience in the Now is real. This challenges the currently dominant materialist ontology in the natural sciences, but maintains the general methodological presupposition that all scientific research - materialist, idealist, or dualist - rests on empirical observations from which concepts and theories are derived. A number of time studies and psychological experiments indicate that the psychological Now is experienced with a certain temporal extension and therefore differs from the physical moment or point of time, which is regarded as infinitesimal with zero duration. Based on the psychological Now I formulate the ontology of consciousness,nature,history,worlds without an ego,and worlds comprising spiritual experiences. Idealist philosophies (idealism) have been criticized for implying solipsism or 'solipsism of the present moment'. This critique is countered by introducing the concepts of collective conscious experience and collective conscious experience across time. The idealist approach leads to a coherent comprehension of natural science including mind-brain relations and also facilitates cross-cultural studies and the understanding of intersubjectivity.

Description:

AHDS Literature, Languages and Literature is hosted by the Oxford Text Archive (OTA), based at Oxford University Computing Services. The OTA has a long history of serving the needs of the academic community and much of its current collection pre-dates the creation of the AHDS. Established in 1976, the OTA was one of only a few repositories in the world to offer a dual service of free archival storage space and distribution for digital resources, many of which would have disappeared without the intervention of the OTA. The OTA was set up in order to prevent the costly duplication of effort in the digital arena, as well as promoting best practice in electronic text creation and encoding. The original collections policy was all encompassing, taking texts from all over the World, in any format or language, within the broad subject area of the Humanities. This open accessions policy has resulted in a wide range of textual material, in a variety of encoding formats, comprising of ancient and classical texts, modern classic authors, drama and poetry, as well as a large collection of reference and linguistic materials.

Finding the right clinical notes : personal health records in Scotland 1600-1994, Lothian Health Services Archive

URL: http://www.clinicaln...uk/search/index.html

Description:

The 'Finding the Right Clinical Notes' project, led by the University of Edinburgh, is intended to improve research access to personal health records in Scotland. Personal Health Records (PHRs) are defined as records that relate to the physical or mental health of an identifiable individual, made by or on the advice of a health professional in connection with that patient's care or treatment. The actual format and content of such records varies considerably according to the dictates of the period in which they were written. The website attempts to overcome the geographical dispersion of PHRs by providing a central database for researchers to locate relevant collections.Descriptions of over 1,000 record series have been added to the database, conforming to the General International Standard for Archival Description (ISAD(G), 2nd ed.) The descriptions have been indexed according to Library of Congress, National Library of Medicine Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and other relevant historical terms. Users may search for records via personal name or free text, or browse the database according to subject term or repository. Records give detailed background information and bibliographic history along with the scope and content of the archived materials and their access conditions.As well as a description of the project, information about patient confidentiality is provided on the website, and there are links to other sites related to PHRs and their usefulness to research.The project received funding from the Research Support Libraries Programme (RSLP).

The measurers : a Flemish image of mathematics in the sixteenth century, Museum of the History of Science, University of Oxford

URL: http://www.mhs.ox.ac...surer/text/title.htm

Description:

The Measurers' is a painting formerly attributed to Hendrik van Balen but now simply agreed to be by a Flemish artist of the late sixteenth century. It displays a number of people engaged in common activities, and represents the usefulness of mathematics in a range of everyday situations. The painting formed the focus of a special exhibition at the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford during 1996. This virtual version of the exhibition derives from the printed catalogue that accompanied the exhibition and includes over 6000 words of text together with some 150 or so images illustrating a selection of the objects on display. It is organized around three main sections:A preliminary section, the mathematicians, the measurers, and the collectors. The first section looks at Renaissance concepts of art, science, and nature; the second examines the mathematical elements of each activity displayed in the painting; the third discusses the connoisseurs who developed collections of mathematical instruments. Each section links to relevant entries in the museum's catalogue, with images of manuscripts and artefacts. A separate page lists the figures accompanying the exhibition. The images and figures have been scanned at high resolution, and may be magnified at two levels. The website also contains a bibliography. Images in gif.

Description:

The biographies listed here include those of people whose work promoted the science of navigation. They are: Tobias Mayer (1723-1762), a German Professor, whose lunar and solar tables published in England in the 18th Century were good enough to determine longitude at sea with an accuracy of half a degree; John Hadley (1682-1744) who invented the sextant which measured the altitude of the Sun or a star above the horizon to find geographic positions at sea; Nevil Maskelyne (1732-1811) a British astronomer who experimented with the determination of longitude by observations of the Moon's position and introduced this method into navigation by publishing `The British Mariner's Guide' (1763). He published the first volume of the `Nautical Almanac' in 1766 and continued the supervision of the almanac until his death; John Flamsteed (1646-1719) founder of the Greenwich Observatory, and the first Astronomer Royal of England; and Jonas Moore (1627-1679) famous for his strong support of mathematics and astronomy which made many other mathematical and astronomical advances possible.

Epact : scientific instruments of medieval and renaissance Europe, Museum of the History of Science, University of Oxford

URL: http://www.mhs.ox.ac.uk/epact/catalogue.php

Description:

'Epact: Scientific Instruments of Medieval and Renaissance Europe' is an online catalogue resulting from a collaboration between four museums: the Museum of the History of Science, Oxford (on whose server the catalogue resides); the Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza [Institute and Museum of the History of Science], Florence; the British Museum, London; and the Museum Boerhaave, Leiden. The 520 catalogue entries represent all the museums' European instrument holdings from makers active before 1600. The catalogue is superbly detailed: besides the usual information on maker, origins, dimensions, etc, each entry has an accompanying photograph, viewable at three levels of resolution, and both a summary overview (typically 130 words) and a rather longer description, with authors credited. The catalogue may be browsed by maker, place of origin or date; particularly useful is an online handlist, which allows all the headings to be viewed at once. Alternatively, thumbnail images of the instruments may be used for navigation. A comprehensive search facility is also available. Among the support materials are a glossary of all terms used in the descriptions, plus slightly longer articles outlining the operation of instruments in html; brief biographical details (with references) of the makers; notes on all the sites of instrument production featured; a general bibliography of early instruments; and an essay, 'Medieval and renaissance mathematical arts and sciences' in html, setting the project in context.

The Cosmographia of Petrus Apianus was one of the most popular books of its kind in sixteenth-century Europe. The book acted as a layman's introduction to such subjects as astronomy, geography, cartography, surveying, navigation, and mathematical instruments. The authors of the website describe cosmography and the intellectual context into which the Cosmographia was published. They also look at the technological aspects of the work, and the situation regarding the scientific instruments of its time. There is a bibliography and a list of editions of the Cosmographia. The text itself is not included with the site. Despite this obvious absence, the site does provide a good introductory essay on the history of science and the history of publishing in sixteenth century Europe. images in jpeg.

Description:

The Illuminated Manuscripts website, part of the British Library's Collect Britain digitisation initiative, contains over 3000 images taken from the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts. The site is introduced by the curator, and contains images chosen from manuscripts dating from the seventh to the seventeenth centuries, including: annals; medical treatises; hagiographies; psalters; bestiaries; chronicles; and religious works.

The images chosen include: marginalia; heraldic art; illuminated and historiated initials and miniatures. This resource would be of use to all those interested in the cultural and intellectual history of the medieval period, as well as scholars and students of art history and manuscript studies. Users can browse the illuminated manuscripts collection by title and date or use the Collect Britain advanced search facility. Once selected, the images are presented with a short description and can be viewed either as a large image or as smaller image in which users can zoom and pan. Images in jpeg.

URL: http://www.dsl.ac.uk/

Description:

The Dictionary of the Scots Language (DSL) is a searchable online historical dictionary of the Scottish language as written and spoken by lowland Scots in Scotland and Ulster from the twelfth century onward. The DSL database combines the entries from the Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue (DOST), which covers the language up until the end of the seventeenth century, and the Scottish National Dictionary (SND), which spans the eighteenth century to the present. The project received funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council under the Resource Enhancement Scheme, with partnership funding provided by Scottish Language Dictionaries Ltd. and the Russell Trust. The DSL website describes the project and provides full public access to the dictionary. Searches may be restricted to various aspects of the dictionary entries, such as: geographical label; quotation text; author; etymology; or date. Standard search results return the word plus its surrounding entries. This is undoubtedly a useful online reference work, which should be of great assistance to scholars researching Scottish literature and culture.

Athenaeum Index of Reviews and Reviewers, The: 1830-1870, Department of Information Science, City University

URL: http://www.soi.city.ac.uk/~asp/v2/home.html

Description:

The Athenaeum Index of Reviews and Reviewers is a bibliography of reviews published in the Athenaeum, a weekly London periodical founded in 1828. The reviews cover a broad range of subjects including literature, biography, politics and the sciences; most although not all of the texts reviewed were in English. Although the Athenaeum survived into the twentieth century, the period covered comprehensively by this bibliography is 1830-1870 (not 1828-1870 as stated occasionally in the text). What makes this resource particularly useful is the index of review contributors: the reviews were generally unsigned, but details have been supplied wherever possible from the editors' marked copies held at City University, London. The front-end is easy to use: the site may be searched or browsed alphabetically by author, title or reviewer. This site does not provide transcripts of the reviews themselves.

SPOT satellite images , MIMAS, the University of Manchester

URL: http://www.mimas.ac.uk/spatial/satellite/spot/

Description:

contains satellite images of the United Kingdom taken as part of the Satellite Pour l'Observation de la Terre (SPOT) programme. The scenes held by MIMAS are panchromatic images covering the landmass of the British Isles. The images have been taken over a period of several years and are therefore likely to be unsuitable for use in projects where time is a significant issue.

Description:

Lambeth Palace Library, in conjunction with the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, is digitising all the plans in the archive of the Incorporated Church Building Society (ICBS) to be presented here in 'Church Plans On-line'. Lambeth Palace Library is the principal library and record office for the history of the Church of England, (and the province of the Church in Wales). Some 11,800 plans and drawings are available from the ICBS archive covering the period 1818-1982, and includes plans and records of 'where a church has been restored, converted or demolished' from the whole of England and Wales. Funded by the New Opportunities Fund and undertaken by Lambeth Palace Library working in partnership with University of Newcastle, Structural Images of the North-East (SINE), this archive is a record of the most significant period in church building since the middle ages and the single largest source for plans of new and existing churches in the country. Online, there is access to the catalogue, with digital images of all plans and drawings in the archive. The database provides a guide to the ICBS files and minute books. It records the church applying for a grant, the parish where it is not a parochial church, the county and diocese in which it was located, the reasons for applying for a grant, the covering dates of the papers, the numbers of plans or photographs, the names of architects or other professionals involved in the building project, and references to the minute books. In advanced searching all of these features are access points into the database. There is a 'Simple Search' facility by which you can interrogate the database of ICBS files by selecting one by place, area, people or firms, and/or by the date. There is a facility to zoom-in to view details of plans.

Early Stuart Libels, Professor Andrew McRae

URL: http://www.earlystua...t/htdocs/index.html?

Description:

'Early Stuart Libels' is a web-edition of seventeenth-century political poetry from manuscript sources, edited by Alistair Bellany and Andrew McRae, for 'Early Modern Literary Studies'. Aimed at 'the academic community and layperson alike', this edition draws together a large collection of material that has not been available in the public domain previously. Most of the poems are forms of attack, whether witty, angry or humorous, but some are written in response to libels and aim to support the orthodox position. The poems offer a valuable insight into literary and political culture from the beginning of the reign of James I to the outbreak of the Civil War. The collection is easy to navigate being divided into sections headed by date and theme, and may be searched by name and source. As much of the material comes from manuscript, editorial principles are explained in the introduction, after an explanation and contextualising of libel through poetry as a political act. Details are also given on the technical considerations involved in producing the edition. These make interesting reading in themselves and there is a strong sense of great care in the project that gives this site authority. The edition may be accessed as a full PDF or zipped hypertext version.

British Library: Shakespeare in quarto , The British Library

URL: http://molcat1.bl.uk...akespeare/search.asp

Description:

This excellent website provides access to one of the 'treasures' of the British Library, the collection of 93 copies of the 21 plays by William Shakespeare printed in quarto before the theatres were closed in 1642. In addition to the digital facsimiles of the quarto editions, the site features: a timeline of events; an extensive section of background information; secondary essays concerning the various quarto imprints by recognised scholars in html; a glossary of bibliographical terms in html; and pages of references and links. The 'Afterlife' section traces how the plays have changed in print and in performance, from the re-opening of the theatres in 1660 to the present day. Background information is provided concerning: Shakespeare's life; his poems and plays, Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre; contemporary publishing practices and print culture; the individual published plays, and those included in the First Folio that did not appear in single publications. The most important part of the site is that devoted to the texts themselves. A simple user interface enables users to compare two texts side by side on screen. Drop-down menus list the various plays published in quarto before 1642 and the different editions of each play. Where the British library holds more than one copy of an edition, the user may additionally select which copy to examine (listed by owner). The digital facsimile pages have been scanned at a good resolution and may be magnified for greater clarity. The only possible omission is a search engine for locating particular textual variations. This resource should prove very welcome to Shakespeare scholars. It may also be of interest to those studying the history of the book, early seventeenth-century printing, or theatre history.

Sidneiana, University of Cambridge, Faculty of English

URL: http://www.english.cam.ac.uk/ceres/sidneiana/

Description:

The title and approach are taken from a volume printed in 1837 and edited by Samuel Butler, Bishop of Lichfield and former headmaster of Shrewsbury School. It was his long stay at Philip Sidney's old school which gave Butler his Sidneian vocation. A formidable collector of Sidney manuscripts and early printed books, he left many treasures both to Shrewsbury School and especially to the British Library. His Sidneiana offered a miscellany of texts from manuscript and rare prints. Some of these have since become more generally available, such as the Sidney Psalmes, from which Butler offered a selection. Others, including the Nevitt and Henry Sidney documents presented here, remain neither widely known nor easily available. Sidneiana aims to offer an online multimedia resource in the spirit of Butler's volume. Is part of - Cambridge English Renaissance Electronic Service (CERES)

Artists' Papers Register (APR), Artists' Papers Register (APR)

URL: http://www.apr.ac.uk/artists/home.htm

Description:

Proposed by the Association of Art Historians in the mid-1980's the Artists' Papers Register (APR) is a searchable list of papers and primary resources located in the UK relating to artists, designers and craftspeople. It is a collaborative project between a number of institutions: the Association of Art Historians, Henry Moore Foundation, Leeds University Library, Barber Institute of Fine Arts, University of Birmingham Library, Victoria and Albert Museum, the National Archives, National Gallery of Ireland, Full Disclosure, the Getty Foundation and the Pilgrim Trust. The APR is an essential resource for anyone who requires quick and easy access to information about archive material relating to design and art history. The Artists' Papers Register defines the term 'artist' as including painters, sculptors, designers, design groups and studios, craftspeople and design occupations within manufacturing. Nationality and status do not form part of the criteria for inclusion; all artists who have papers in publicly accessible collections in the United Kingdom are listed on the Register. Partly for reasons of scale, and also because of the different type of collection or repository in which they are kept, the papers of architects and photographers are not sought out, though an architect's papers may be noted where they relate to interior or furniture design. The database can be searched by artist name, location, artist type, keyword or biography. A list is provided with record description and dates of each resource. When a list item is selected the location is given with a link to its place in the National Archives' Archon Directory, which provides more information about that particular repository.

Based upon the work of a research seminar founded in 1995 in Cardiff's School of European Studies, the journal makes available online a selection of contributions by postgraduates and new lecturers in the fields of French, German, Italian and Spanish. Only three most recent of the seven journal volumes were available online: Travelling the Urban Space; Identity, Gender, Politics; and Writing Difference. This is an interesting journal for those working on European literature and culture, diaspora and comparative literature but there have been no new issues since 2004. Although the journal has not been updated New Readings seminars are still held annually.

Description:

The Anglo-Norman dictionary materials online fir into three separate categories. The first category consists of AND2 entries for letters A-E (the scope of the two published print volumes). The layout and presentation of these entries on screen is designed to be as close to their appearance in print as is feasible. The second category consisted, at the time of initial on-line publication, of entries for AND2 letter F. In December 2006, these were joined by the entries for AND2 letter G. The third category consists of entries taken verbatim from the print version of AND1. At the moment, these entries start at the beginning of H; but by the last quarter of 2007, the new AND2 entries for H will have been added to those for A-G which are already on-line, replacing the AND1 material.

Herculaneum Papyri, Bodleian Library, University of Oxford

URL: http://www.herculaneum.ox.ac.uk/papyri.html

Description:

The Oxford Facsimiles of the Herculaneum Papyri is an indexed database of images. These facsimiles (disegni) were made when the rolls were first opened. Most of the work was carried out at Portici near Naples from 1802 to 1806 under the direction of the Rev. John Hayter and at the expense of the Prince of Wales (later George IV). In many places the drawings preserve text no longer present in the original papyri: fragments of papyrus that had become stuck to a lower layer during the unrolling process (sovrapposti) were scraped off and thus destroyed after they had been drawn, in order to reveal the letters underneath. Such fragments, and others lost through subsequent damage to the originals, are known only from these drawings.

Ancient Greek and Roman Coins, Doug Smith

URL: http://dougsmith.ancients.info/index.html

Description:

This is a very informative and detailed site - useful for those who are new to numismatics. The categories of coins covered focuses mainly on the Roman period (which is divided into seven sections, from the Repubic to the fifth century). Greek coins cover the Athenian empire, Alexander the Great, the Ptolemies, and the Greek cities under the Roman empire. There are also (smaller) sections on Eastern empires (Parthia and Persia) as well as the Byzantine period. A 'technical and general topics' section introduces one to the vocabulary and terminology of ancient coins, a list of gods, and personifications which appear on coins, and lots of other information (which is primarily for those wishing to collect and photograph coins). The accounts of the coins are very detailed - the historical background is explained as well as information about the particular coins in question. The images of the coins themselves are particularly good and are remarkably detailed.

The website also includes a photo gallery with thumbnail images, which can be browsed and a bibliography of related book titles. Additionally, there is a links page of related sites and a directory of London photographers 1841-1908, which was first published in print format in 1986.

There is also an essay by Michael Pritchard about the growth of the early photography in html.

Description:

Oxford University is internationally renowned for its scholarly library collections, and in particular for those of the Bodleian Library which has been a library of deposit for almost 400 years. The University has a long tradition in digital scholarship and there are a number of completed library projects focusing on the digitization of primary resources. Although the digital collections are widely used, there is a clear demand for a closer integration of discrete collections of this kind. The ODL aims to offer a Digital Library architecture which will allow centralized access to digital resources, both those it creates itself and those acquired from outside. The use of established standards for descriptive metadata (i.e. EAD, TEI) is a precondition for this integration process. Existing digital library collections may be transferred step by step into a common architecture with an integrated retrieval mechanism.List of collections: * Ashmolean Museum Monumental Brasses * Ashmolean Museum PotWeb * Ashmolean Museum The Tradescant Collection * Ashmolean Museum, Beazley Archive A Database of Athenian Pottery; Beazley's Drawings; the Cast Collection; and Ancient Gems and Finger-rings * Balliol College, Bodleian Library, Corpus Christi College, Jesus College, Magdalen College, Merton College and St John's College Celtic and Medieval Manuscripts or 'Early Manuscripts at Oxford' * Computing Services Oxford Text Archive * Department of Classics Sphakia Survey * Faculty of History Oxford Portraits Project * Faculty of Literae Humaniores Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents * Learning Technologies Group Wilfred Owen Multimedia Digital Archive * Oxford University Library Services, Indian Institute Library Digital Shikshapatri * Oxford University Library Services, Bodleian Library John Johnson Collection * Oxford University Library Services, Bodleian Library Bodleian Broadside Ballads Project * Oxford University Library Services, Bodleian Library Images of Medieval Manuscripts * Oxford University Library Services, Bodleian Library John Johnson Collection: Toyota City Imaging Project * Oxford University Library Services, Oxford Digital Library Early English Books Online - Text Creation Partnership * Oxford University Library Services, Oxford Digital Library The Thomas Gray Archive * Queen Elizabeth House Refugee Studies Programme Digital Library Project * Universities of Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester and Oxford Internet Library of Early Journals (ILEJ)
