ID # AHA2740 SHORT BATCH DESIGNATION: AC TITLE: The English Register of Oseney Abbey (parts 1-2) ED. Andrew Clark SERIES: Early English Text Society OS 133, 144 (1907, 1913) SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS 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. -234. Structure This text consists of a two top-level divisions: The first <DIV1> is the Mirror of the Lyfe of Cryste, pp. -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. Example: <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. Example: <DIV3 N="18"> <HEAD>[18.] A Bull of Eugenye pope iij confermyng &thorn;e forsaide &yogh;evynges.</HEAD> 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 itself. 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 ... Milestones Folio references are recorded in the margin, preceded by an asterisk, in this form: *leaf 2. *leaf 2, back. *leaf 3. *leaf 3, back. etc. 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"> Notes 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>, Characters 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 marks: "&c9." where "9" is a character that looks more or less like a superscript "9" should be recorded simply as "&c.$x$" "dj." with a swung dash (~) above the "j" Record as "dj$d$." "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.
