TITLE: The English Register of Oseney Abbey (parts 1-2)
ED. Andrew Clark
SERIES: Early English Text Society OS 133, 144 (1907, 1913)


En-face? NO.

Key and code the following pages:

  Title page (recto; verso is blank)   = p. [iii]
  Contents   (1 leaf, recto and verso) = pp. [vii]-viii
  Text                                 = pp. [1]-234.


  This text consists of a two top-level divisions:
    The first <DIV1> is the Mirror of the Lyfe of Cryste,
    pp. [1]-4.
    The second <DIV1> is the Oseney Cartulary Englished,
    pp. 5-209.
 The first <DIV1> is a fragment containing only a table of
 contents. Tag it as a <TABLE> containing <ROW>s, each
 <ROW> containing three <CELL>s. The first <CELL> should
 contain the information in the margin (e.g. "v. Mt. i.18-25"),
 the second <CELL> the "Capitulum" information (e.g. 
 "Capitulum quintum") and the third cell the prose description
 (e.g. "of the conuersion of mary maudeleyn").
 The second <DIV1> contains the bulk of the book.
  Subdivide the second <DIV1>, using:
   <DIV2> = the sections denoted editorially by roman numerals
          and listed in the table of contents on pp. vii-viii. 
          Use the headings in the table of contents as heading 
          for each section, supplying them within brackets.
           <DIV2 TYPE="Title" N="VI">
           <HEAD>[VI. Of the Foundation of Oseney]</HEAD>
          Sometimes the same heading (or a similar one) is 
          already placed within brackets in the text itself; 
          use the heading from the table of contents and 
          ignore the bracketed one already in the text.
      Subdivide all the <DIV2>s, using:
       <DIV3> = the sections denoted by arabic numerals.

              <DIV3 N="18">
              <HEAD>[18.] A Bull of Eugenye pope iij 
                    confermyng &amp;thorn;e forsaide 
       NOTE: Where <DIV3> breaks coincide with <DIV2> breaks, 
             nest the <DIV3> within the <DIV2> and apply to 
             each the appropriate heading: <DIV2> gets the 
             roman numeral and chapter heading from the table of
             contents, in brackets; <DIV3> gets the arabic 
             numeral and the bold heading printed in the text 
             Example (from p. 10):
             <DIV2 TYPE="Title" N="VI">
             <HEAD>[VI. Of the Foundation of Oseney]</HEAD>
               <DIV3 N="11">
               <HEAD>[11.] Sequitur ffundacio Oseneye.</HEAD>
                 <P>HIT is to be know ...

  Folio references are recorded in the margin, preceded by
  an asterisk, in this form:
    *leaf 2.
    *leaf 2, back.
    *leaf 3.
    *leaf 3, back.
  Record these as follows, placing the tag at the spot
  indicated by the corresponding asterisk within the text:
    <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="2a">
    <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="2b">
    <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="3a">
    <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="3b">

  Editorial notes appear at the bottom of the page, keyed 
  to the text with superscripted footnote numbers. Omit
  the superscripted numbers and embed the notes at the
  appropriate place in the text:
  Goodwyne money-maker<NOTE PLACE="foot">'monetarius.'</NOTE>,

  This edition uses many odd characters; including "g" 
  and "d" with a final tick; "h" with a horizontal bar
  crossing the upright; single "l" and double "ll" 
  with a curling horizontal line crossing the upright(s);
  and "n" "m" "s" and "r" with a final stroke that curves
  up and back over the letter. Treat these as simplex
  letters: record them simply as "g" "d" "h" "l" "ll"
  "n" "m" "s" and "r" respectively.
  This edition also preserves some medieval abbreviation
    "&c9." where "9" is a character that looks more or
           less like a superscript "9" should be 
           recorded simply as "&amp;c.$x$"
    "dj."  with a swung dash (~) above the "j" Record as
    "l."   with a loop like a backward "c" crossing the
           upright, then looping up and back over it.
           Record as "l$d$."

Special instructions for this book.

*Include* the modern English summaries printed in the 
margins (despite the fact that these are normally excluded
from keying); tag them as <ARGUMENT> and place the 
<ARGUMENT> tag directly after the <HEAD> at the
head of the item. Many, but not all, of the arguments 
will begin with a date. Material in square brackets in the
margins is not part of the argument and should be omitted.
