Not every contribution sent since we published SR 96 will have made it into this issue, for it has been compiled on the fly, as it were. When will it appear? If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now ; if it be not now, yet it will come--the readiness is all. Look for SR 98

[The upheavals of the French Revolution not only affected France and Europe, but heralded crucial consequences for the Caribbean. Revolution in Saint-Domingue led to the collapse of slavery and the creation of Haiti as an independent republic. 'Jacobin' slaves fleeing the island carried word of Revolution to British territories such as Jamaica. These disturbances added urgency to French and British planter's calls for military assistance and, some felt, undermined the case of those opposed to the slave trade in the popular imagination. This article draws attention to the connections between the French and British abolitionist movements and to the role played by émigré communities in the debate on the colonies and slavery.]

Archives de l'Évêché de Namur

INVENTAIRE DES ARCHIVES DE L'ÉVÊCHÉ : Après avoir travaillé pendant plusieurs années à l'Evêché de Namur, Madame Anne Cherton publia, en 1992, un inventaire sommaire des Archives de l'Evêché.  Cet inventaire se composait de trois sections.  Les deux premières sections concernaient les archives déjà inventoriées par le Chanoine Jean-Servais Schmitz (1877-1951), la première section se composant de Registres, et la seconde de Cartons.  La troisième section était neuve: elle se composait de tous les documents inventoriées par Madame Cherton elle-même.  Néanmoins, cette dernière a fait passer une partie des Registres et quelques Cartons des deux premières sections dans la troisième.  Voulant uniformiser l'ensemble des archives de l'évêché et continuant l'intégration des deux premières sections dans la troisième, ce nouvel inventaire ne possède désormais plus aucune section, ou, si l'on veut, une section unique, qui est celle de l'inventaire même.

Textual Studies, 1500-1800

A detailed blog/resource by Kevin Curran, charting major happenings in the world of early modern textual studies: publications, conferences, funding opportunities, and major research initiatives. The goal is to stimulate dialogue amongst scholars working in the traditionally distinct fields of Medieval, Renaissance, and eighteenth century studies, and to foster a broad awareness of the multiplicity of critical approaches being taken to the textual cultures of England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, America, and beyond.

 

 


Textual Scholarship

A Wiki dealing with all aspects of Textual Criticism and Scholarly Editing, designed as a resource that can be used by all members of the community and can grow and improve with time. The wiki is (loosely) associated with the European Society for Textual Scholarship, and was set up by Barbara Bordalejo from Birmingham University. Professor Bordalejo anticipates that It could serve as a first port of call for those interested in researching editorial theory and methods, bibliography, book history and other aspects of the study of books and texts.

As a wiki project--that is, an online resource with unlimited editing and adding access--it depends on the involvement of the community and the participation of willing volunteers.

Electronic British Library Journal, 2005, article 1 (available as pdf) [The first official printed catalogues of Sir Robert Cotton's manuscripts and books--the Reverend Thomas Smith's in 1696 and Humfrey Wanley's in 1705--represented the fruits of bibliographic labours undertaken with great care and anxiety over the individual mastery of a summum of texts delimited by the contingencies (social, political, economic, geographical, and otherwise) of time and place, as well as over the perceived importance of indexing and preserving a national literary heritage well before the academic disciplines of systematic bibliography, literary history, or English studies even existed. In the often fractious relationship between Smith and Wanley, a productive convergence resulted that helped pave the way for a new union bibliography, and the evidence would seem to suggest that when it came to the conception and articulation of the necessity for a universal comparative catalogue in the early modern period, Wanley was the chief (if often underappreciated) conscience of English bibliography].

LIBRARY HISTORY
THE BRITISH ISLES - TO 1850

Robin Alston's Library History Database now contains information on over 27,000 libraries in the British Isles, and is based on over 1,200 published works. It is regularly updated, but additions and corrections are usually added to the main files for England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and the Islands.

Cultural historians have under-estimated the number of libraries available for reading, whether for entertainment or for self-improvement. As the data presented here demonstrates there was provision of print in almost every market town in the British Isles by the year 1820, and by 1850 in hundreds of villages with a population of less than 500 souls. The sheer variety of libraries so far discovered is quite extraordinary: libraries devoted to the arts and sciences; libraries in the workplace; libraries on omnibuses; libraries in inns; libraries on the estates of wealthy landowners provided for the workers; libraries associated with every type of society; village libraries provided by benevolent pastors.

[New Brazilian historiography, taking into account new research on the slave trade, based on transformations of labor in the colonial and national context through the middle of the 19th century, including the South Atlantic. This horizon imposes a new periodization. The rupture with the colonial order occurred not with the arrival of the Portuguese court in 1808 or with independence in 1822, but in 1850, with the definitive end of the African slave trade.]

Rhetoric

 

Silva Rhetoricæ:
The Forest of Rhetoric

An online guide to the terms of classical and renaissance rhetoric. Sometimes it is difficult to see the forest (the big picture) of rhetoric because of the trees (the hundreds of Greek and Latin terms naming figures of speech, etc.) within rhetoric. This site is intended to help beginners, as well as experts, make sense of rhetoric, both on the small scale (definitions and examples of specific terms) and on the large scale (the purposes of rhetoric, the patterns into which it has fallen historically as it has been taught and practiced for 2000+ years).

Neatly divided by "trees" (the nature of rhetoric, branches of oratory, canons of rhetoric, &c.) and "flowers" (rhetorical figures), this site is a brilliant and accessible introduction to the field and an indispensible resource for the rhetorically savvy. Kudos to Dr. Gideon Burton of Brigham Young University, the author of the resource.

The problem facing historians is the accuracy of these accounts for all necessarily reflected the agenda and views of the compiler. Two drafts in the BL's Holland House papers may be unique for the insight they give into the compilation of a 'verbatim' account of part of a speech by Lord Chancellor Hardwicke on the Clandestine Marriage Bill in June 1753. The author was Henry Fox, who considered the bill a personal slight on his family for he and his brother had contracted clandestine marriages. Further Fox was trying to maintain his place in the ministry, and may have wanted an accurate account of the speech to bolster his position. Thus he seems to have gone to great lengths to strive for accuracy in his version of the speech.]

[We would like to note the adaptation, in ethnic costume, of Thomas Southerne's play, after Aphra Behn's novel, by Nigerian playwright-novelist, Biyi Bandele, produced at The Duke Theatre in New York City; (London premiere, 1999, Royal Shakespeare Company). See feature article (full half-page, 2 color photos) by Celia McGee, New York Times, 17th February 2008 (Sunday issue), Arts&Leisure section, p6. Though reviewed by Charles Isherwood (New York Times) as "a strangely bland if superficially exotic work of theatre", McGee offers an informed and balanced assessment of this classic Restoration text.

The Linnell set of Blake's water color illustrations to The Book of Job and the sketchbook containing Blake's reduced drawings preparatory for the Job engravings. The sketchbook is reproduced complete and in color for the first time. These two important sets of Job illustrations join the Butts set of water colors and the engravings, both previously published in the Archive. Thus, the Archive now includes all four series of Job illustrations. The engravings are fully searchable. The Linnell set of water colors and the sketchbook are presented in our Preview mode, one that provides all the features of the Archive except Image Search and Inote (our image annotation program).

Blake's pictorial engagements with The Book of Job extended over many decades. His first efforts were a small group of wash drawings of the mid-1780s showing Job in his misery with his wife and three friends. Another version of this subject appears among the emblem series that Blake sketched in his Notebook, but the composition appearing in the wash drawings culminated in the large intaglio etching/engraving, "Job," which Blake listed in his advertisement To the Public of 10 October 1793. This print may have stimulated Blake's chief patron, Thomas Butts, to commission a tempera painting, Job and His Daughters, c. 1799-1800 and, about six years later, a series of nineteen water colors illustrating the story of Job (the so-called "Butts set"). In 1821, Blake and his new patron John Linnell borrowed the water colors from Butts. Linnell traced the series and Blake colored them (the so-called "Linnell set"). Blake also added two more compositions to this later group and added versions of these same compositions to the earlier group, so that both sets now have twenty-one designs. The Linnell set led directly to his commission for the engravings. These began as a series of reduced sketches executed in 1823; the engravings themselves, with a title page added, were not finished and published until 1826 (September 2006).

The William Blake Archive is pleased to announce the publication of an electronic edition of The [First] Book of Urizen copy D (British Museum). Blake etched in shallow relief the 28 plates of The [First] Book of Urizen in 1794, although only copies A and B contain them all.  Copy D, with 26 plates, was beautifully and extensively color printed in 1794, along with copies A, C, E, F, and J. Copy D is the sixth of eight extant copies to enter the Archive, joining copies A, B (1795), C, F, and G (1818). Like these and all the illuminated books in the Archive, its text and images are fully searchable and are supported by our Inote and ImageSizer applications. With the Archive's Compare feature, users can easily juxtapose multiple impressions of any plate across the different copies of this or any of the other illuminated book. New protocols for transcription, which produce improved accuracy and fuller documentation in editors' notes, have been applied to copy D and to all the Urizen texts previously published.

With the publication of Urizen copy D, the Archive now contains fully searchable and scalable electronic editions of 55 copies of Blake's 19 illuminated books in the context of full bibliographic information about each work, careful diplomatic transcriptions of all texts, detailed descriptions of all images, and extensive bibliographies. In addition to illuminated books, the Archive contains many important series of engravings, sketches, and watercolor drawings, including Illustrations to Thomas Gray's Poems, Water Color and Engraved Illustrations to Dante's Divine Comedy, The Large Color Printed Drawings of 1795 and c. 1805, and the recently published Linnell set of Book of Job water colors and the Sketchbook Containing Drawings for the Engraved Illustrations to the Book of Job.

The William Blake Archive is pleased to announce the publication of an electronic edition of Blake's water color illustrations for Robert Blair's The Grave.  These are probably the 20 designs selected in 1805 by R. H. Cromek for publication in his forthcoming edition of The Grave, although only 12 were engraved by Louis Schiavonetti for the volume, published in 1808.  One design, The Widow Embracing her Husband's Grave, has been known for many years, but the other 19 water colors disappeared between their auction in 1836 and their dramatic rediscovery in 2001.  These 19 were sold individually at auction in spring 2006 and are now widely dispersed.  The Grave water colors are presented in our Preview mode, one that provides all the features of the Archive except Image Search and Inote (our image annotation program).  They join Schiavonetti's engravings and Blake's white-line etching of one design, "Deaths Door," previously published in the Archive.

The William Blake Archive is pleased to announce the publication of electronic editions of Blake's Visions of the Daughters of Albion, copies B and O, both in the British Museum. Like all the illuminated books in the Archive, both the texts and images of these new publications are fully searchable and are supported by our Inote and ImageSizer applications. Copy B was produced in Blake's first printing session for Visions in 1793 and joins copies A, C, and J, also from this session and previously published in the Archive. Probably to lend variety to his stock of copies on hand, Blake used three ink colors in this first printing: yellow ochre (as in copy A), raw sienna (copies B and C), and green (copy J). As is characteristic of illuminated books produced in the early 1790s, these copies were printed on both sides of the leaves and finished in semi-transparent washes. As with several other illuminated books in the British Museum collection, the leaves of copy B are mounted close to the image in windows cut in thick paper. The inner edges of these mounts appear in some of our reproductions. Visions copy O is the sister copy of copy P, also in the Archive. Both are printed in red-orange ink on one side of RUSE & TURNERS / 1815 paper and finished in watercolors and pen and ink. Each impression is numbered in the top right corner and bordered by one thin line drawn in red-orange ink a little over a centimeter around the image, setting off each page like a miniature painting [December 2006].

ISBN 0-8386-4101-6 [Two unpublished plays by John Thelwall (1764-1834), radical lecturer for the London Corresponding Society, acquitted of treason in 1794, and a prolific man of letters who produced novels, poetry, journalism, literary criticism, scientific and political essays, autobiography, and sociological analysis, in addition to drama. Both plays, libretti for the London theater, are especially relevant today as they use popular literary forms to discuss critically issues of race, empire, revolution, and sexuality. Incle and Yarico (1792) comically treats the important eighteenth-century intertextual fable of the English merchant, Inkle, who betrays the Indian maid, Yarico, an innocent and ''noble savage.'' The play is forthrightly abolitionist in its depiction of slavery. The Incas (1792) allegorizes the French Revolution and the English suppression of political dissent in depicting a confrontation between the Europeans and the New World. Drawing upon and extending the radical Enlightenment, Thelwall undermines the justifications for European empire.]

The Marandet Collection of French Plays

The University of Warwick's Marandet collection of 18th- and 19th-century French plays is a unique resource and one of the most significant collections of its kind in the country. There are over 2000 plays from the period 1700-1830 and a similar number from the period 1830-1900. Most of the plays were acquired originally by a 19th-century French collector, Amédée Marandet, who was himself an actor and playwright. Many of the works and their authors have now been forgotten but the collection is extremely rich in popular drama of the 18th and 19th centuries.

In 2005-06, 301 plays from the French Revolutionary decade (1789-99) were digitised. These plays are freely available to the public and scholars alike and are fully key-word searchable, making them an extremely valuable resource.

In 2006-07 and 2007-08, a generous grant from the University's Education Innovation Fund enabled students to be involved in the process of selecting and digitally preserving plays from the Napoleonic period 1799-1815. Those who wished then had the opportunity of producing original research based on ‘their’ plays. There are currently 65 plays digitised for the Napoleonic period. More information on the teaching project which was a collaborative undertaking between the Library and Dr Katherine Astbury in the Department of French Studies can be found in Astbury, K. (2006)French Theatre of the First Empire: Enhancing Research-Based Learning. Warwick Interactions Journal 28. Accessed online at: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/cap/resources/pubs/interactions/archive/issue28/abastbury/astbury

Marandet Matters is an online journal publishing original research by undergraduate students working on plays in the Marandet collection. The first issue can be consulted here.

Sur un fond de basse continue des contrariétés de la vie quotidienne de Mme de Graffigny -- sa santé, ses problèmes domestiques, ses soucis financiers -- les quatorze mois que couvre le volume 10 témoignent d'un crescendo dans ses fortunes. Un séjour idyllique à la campagne dans le village de Thiais, la nouvelle d'une augmentation de la pension qu'elle reçoit de la cour impériale, la décision tant attendue d'Helvétius de demander en mariage Anne-Catherine de Ligniville -- tous ces événements ont un effet positif sur le moral de Mme de Graffigny. Et ce qui domine le tout, c'est l'histoire de la rédaction, la révision et enfin la mise en scène de sa "comédie larmoyante", Cénie. La première représentation le 25 juin 1750 à la Comédie-Française, décrite à la fin du volume, est un triomphe.

Often assumed subsequently to be folk tales, these stories were, in fact, the product of a sophisticated French literary tradition. This article explores the circumstances of Perrault's life that led to the writing of such famous stories as `Sleeping Beauty', `Little Red Riding Hood' and `Cinderella' and details the publication history of the Contes in both France and England. Particular emphasis is paid to `Puss in Boots'. The literary sources of this tale are examined and a selection given from illustrations to nineteenth-century English editions of it held by the British Library.]

textgrid

TextGrid aims to create a community grid for the collaborative editing, annotation, analysis and publication of specialist texts. It thus forms a cornerstone in the emerging e-Humanities. It is part of the grid projects funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Text sciences research the complex processes in the genesis of literature and their contexts. Despite modern information technology and a clear thrust towards collaboration, text scientists still mostly work in local systems and project-oriented applications. Current initiatives lack integration with already existing text corpora, and they remain unconnected to resources such as dictionaries, lexica, secondary literature and tools. However, this integration and interconnection bears a wealth of opportunities.

Wissenschaftliche Primärtexte stellen das Ergebnis eines komplexen, erkenntnisgeleiteten Prozesses dar, der trotz aller erkennbaren Bemühungen der Textwissenschaften um stärker kooperativ organisierte Arbeitsverfahren derzeit vorwiegend in lokalen Installationen mit jeweils projektbezogenen Applikationen abläuft. Dies führt in der Regel dazu, dass neu erstellte digitale Texte nicht in vorhandene Datensammlungen integriert und nicht mit Erschließungsmaterialien wie etwa Wörterbüchern, Lexika, Nachschlagewerken und Indizierungsinstrumenten verknüpft werden. Damit geht ein großer Teil des möglichen Mehrfachnutzens moderner EDV-unterstützter Erstellungsverfahren verloren.

The notebooks and drawings survive in the Library's collections, providing a rare opportunity to recover the lost and pre-industrial landscapes of late eighteenth-century England. In particular they open a window into the everyday lives of the inhabitants of Kirkby-in-Ashfield in Nottinghamshire, where Kaye was rector and where Grimm visited on more than one occasion.]

He tried to survive on turtles and birds but found very little water on the barren island. He wrote a diary. He probably died after about half a year. In January 1726 British mariners found his tent, diary and other things and brought the diary to England. In 1728 a first English version of the diary of the Dutch castaway was published. Other versions followed. Who was the castaway? The truth was disclosed by the Dutch historian Michiel Koolbergen (1953-2002), in a posthumously published book in Dutch. With the support of Michiel Koolbergen’s family and publisher, this new book discloses the truth in English. This book is illustrated with line drawings, both historic ones and by the Dutch artist Anneke de Vries.] To order, go to http://www.lulu.com/content/257718

Stanford University Press, 2006. 264 pp.0804751366 [With extraordinary chutzpa and deep philosophical seriousness, Solomon ben Joshua of Lithuania renamed himself after his medieval intellectualhero, Moses Maimonmides.  Maimon was perhaps the most brilliant and certainly the most controversial figure of the late-eighteenth century Jewish Enlightenment.  He scandalized rabbinic authorities, embarrassed Moses Mendelssohn, provoked Kant, charmed Goethe and inspired Fichte, among others.  This is the first study of Maimon to integrate his idiosyncratic philosophical idealism with his popular autobiography,and with his early unpublished exegetical, mystical and Maimonidean work in Hebrew.  In doing so it illuminates the intellectual andspiritual possibilities open to a European Jew at the turn of the eighteenth century.]

The Carpet Museum Trust

From early times Kidderminster, on the River Stour, was a cloth producing town. One of its principal products was a heavy weight, multi-purpose material known as Kidderminster "Stuff". In 1735 the first "Kidderminster" carpet was woven but soon after "Brussels" was introduced and the town's Masters quickly converted their handlooms to concentrate on carpet production.

The Carpet Museum Trust Archives Centre holds historical records relating to the carpet industry dating from the 19th century to the present day. These records cover all aspects of the industry and range from the archives of official bodies to small collections individuals associated with the carpet manufacturing industry.

Early Canadiana Online (ECO) is a digital library providing access to 2,657,878 pages of Canada's printed heritage. It features works published from the time of the first European settlers up to the early 20th Century. ECO is produced by Canadiana.org, a nonprofit organization for preserving and providing access to early Canadian publications, first on microfiche and now online. ECO began in 1997 as a pilot project to create an online digital library. Over three years, 550,000 pages of text were taken from the CIHM's microfiche collection and scanned into digital images. This part of the collection remains free and accessible to the general public. The second phase of ECO began in 2000 and is scheduled to continue to 2004. During this time, 1,250,000 pages of colonial, federal, and provincial government publications will be scanned and published. This portion of the collection is available to all registered ECO members. Along the way, a few special projects have also been added to the collection. These include 20,000 pages of text detailing the history of Hudson's Bay Company, and 22,500 pages of Jesuit Relations texts, translated into English by Reuben Thwaites. These collections are also accessible to the general public.

Notre Mémoire en ligne (NML) est une bibliothèque numérique donnant accès à 2,657,878 pages de patrimoine imprimé du Canada. Celle-ci présente des travaux publiés à partir des premiers pionniers européens jusqu'au début du 20e siècle. NML a été créé par Canadiana.org, un organisme à but non lucratif dédié à la préservation et à la diffusion des anciennes publications canadiennes, d'abord sur microfiches et maintenant en ligne. NML a débuté en 1997 comme projet pilote en vue de créer une bibliothèque numérique en direct. Au cours de trois années, 550 000 pages de texte ont été tirées de la collection de microfiches de l'ICMH et balayées en images numériques. L'accès à cette partie de la collection est encore gratuit et à la portée du grand public. La deuxième étape de NML a débuté en 2000 et elle doit se poursuivre jusqu'en 2004. Au cours de cette période, 1 250 000 pages de publications des gouvernements coloniaux, fédéraux et provinciaux seront balayées et publiées. Cette partie de la collection est disponible à tous les membres inscrits de NML. En cours de route, quelques projets spéciaux se sont ajoutés à la collection. Ces projets comprennent 20 000 pages de texte détaillant l'histoire de la Compagnie de la Baie d'Hudson ainsi que 22 500 pages de textes sur les relations des Jésuites, textes traduits en anglais par Reuben Thwaites. Ces collections sont aussi à la disposition du grand public.

Early Americas
Digital Archive

The Early Americas Digital Archive (EADA) is a collection of electronic texts and links to texts originally written in or about the Americas from 1492 to approximately 1820. Open to the public for research and teaching purposes, EADA is published and supported by the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) under the general editorship of Professor Ralph Bauer, at the University of Maryland at College Park. Intended as a long-term and inter-disciplinary project in progress committed to exploring the intersections between traditional humanities research and digital technologies, it invites scholars from all disciplines to submit their editions of early American texts for publication on this site. Texts may be submitted with or without introductions and annotations, as fully marked-up .xml documents or as "plain-text" files. Full credit will be given to contributing guest editors for their work.

1704: The Raid on Deerfield

In the pre-dawn hours of February 29, 1704, a force of about 300 French and Native allies launched a daring raid on the English settlement of Deerfield, Massachusetts, situated in the Pocumtuck homeland. 112 Deerfield men, women, and children were captured and taken on a 300-mile forced march to Canada in harsh winter conditions. Some of the captives were later redeemed and returned to Deerfield, but one-third chose to remain among their French and Native captors. Was this dramatic pre-dawn assault in contested lands an unprovoked, brutal attack on an innocent village of English settlers? Was it a justified military action against a stockaded settlement in a Native homeland? Or was it something else?

An exemplary history website produced by the Memorial Hall Museum, Deerfield, Massachusetts . The flash animations are particularly well done.

 

 

DoHistory

A fascinating site, featuring a brilliantly interactive rendition of the diary of Martha Ballard, Laura Thatcher Ulrich's scholarly work on Ballard, notes on the film made of Ballard's life, an archive of the original documents used on the site.

Ballard wrote in her diary nearly every day from January 1, 1785 to May 12, 1812 (27 years) for a total of almost 10,000 entries. Her diary is an unparalleled document in early American history.

The site also includes discussion of the history of everyday life and suggestions about how to do the same thing for other historical figures.
