TITLE: Altenglische Legenden
ED.  Carl Horstmann
PUBLISHED: Paderborn: Ferdinand Schöningh, 1875



  Some facing pages contain parallel, not sequential,
  text. For details, see below under Structure.

Key and code the following pages:

  1. Title page (front only) = p. [I]
  2. Main text:              = pp. 1-240.


  <FRONT> contains the title page only.
  <BODY> contains the main text, divided into six <DIV1>s.
  <DIV1>s are marked by major headings, as follows:
    I.   Kindheit Jesu                 (pp.1-62)
    II.  Zur Geburt Jesu.              (pp.63-110)
    III. Barlam und Josaphat           (pp.111-148)
    IV.  Das Fegfeuer des h. Patrick.  (pp.149-211)
         Beilage I.                    (pp.212-214)
         Beilage II.                   (pp.215-240)
  <DIV2>s in this book should be used to distinguish 
          texts from different manuscripts; these texts
          are are marked by headings with alphabetical
          designations ("a." "A.")
    1. The first <DIV1> (pp.1-62) should 
       not be be divided into <DIV2>s.
         Treat the breaks in the verse 
         created by the unusual long prose headings
         as line-groups (<LG>s). Example (p.16):
            <L>Ne hadde he no&thorn;ur dunt ne pult.</L>
              <HEAD>Here cometh &thorn;e giwes to Josep
              and makez gret plainte of $Jhu$ for he 
              hadde a child a slawe; ake seth&thorn;e 
              $Jhc$ hine a rerde.</HEAD>
            <L>Aftur al &thorn;isilke sake</L>
            <L>gret noise huy guonne make,</L>
    2. The second <DIV1> (pp.63-110) contains two
       separate versions, the "A" (Ashmol.43) and 
       "B" (Egerton 1993) texts. Place each text into
       its own <DIV2>.
         The "A" text occupies even-numbered pages 
         The "B" text occupies odd-numbered pages
         [65]-81; then also *all* pages (odd
         and even) 82-109 (110 is blank).
    3. The third <DIV1> (pp.111-148) does not need to
       be subdivided.
    4. The fourth <DIV1> (pp. 149-211) contains three
       separate versions: the "a" (Ashmol.43), "b"
       (Egerton 1993), and "c" (Laud 108) texts. Place
       each of these into its own <DIV2>.
         "a" text:    pages 151-174
         "b" text:    pages [175]-176 
                       and even-numbered pp.178-210
         "c" text:    odd-numbered pages [177]-211
    5. The fifth <DIV1> (pp.212-214) should not be
       subdivided into <DIV2>s.
         The sections of verse marked off by large
         caps and paragraph-like indentation may be 
         tagged as line-groups (<LG>).
    6. The sixth <DIV1> (pp.215-240) contains two
       separate versions: the "A" ('Barlaam &
       Josaphat aus Ms Vernon') and "B" ('De sanctis 
       Berlam & Josaphat aus Ms. Harl. 4196') texts.
       Each text should occupy its own <DIV2>.
         "A" text:    pages [215]-225
         "B" text:    pages [226]-240

  Folio references appear in small type in the margin, 
  like this:
  fol. 34       <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="34">
  fol. 35       <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="35">
  fol. 36       <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="36">
  Some appear opposite lines of verse (in which case,
  place the tag at the end of the appropriate verse line);
  some are squeezed between lines of verse (in which
  case, place the tag at the end of the preceding
  verse line); and some seem to coincide with the
  beginning of headings (in which case they may be placed
  before the heading).


 1. Most notes are keyed to line numbers in the verse,
    usually beginning "V." ("verse ..."), e.g., p.26:
   V.729 him fehlt.
  Record as:
   <NOTE PLACE="foot">him <I>fehlt</I>.</NOTE>
  and place at the end of the appropriate line (i.e., 729).

 2. Notes to the prose headings in the first <DIV1> begin like
    this "Prosa nach 750" [i.e., "prose after line 750"]; 
    or "Prosa n. 1263:" or "Pr.n.1329:"  Place such notes
    at the end of the prose heading indicated, tagged as
    <NOTE PLACE="foot">.
 3. Some pages contain two sets of footnotes, e.g. page
    87-93; [151]-174. Treat these in the usual way, 
    but distinguish between them by supplying two 
    different values for the PLACE attribute:
      <NOTE PLACE="foot1"> for the upper set; 
      <NOTE PLACE="foot2"> for the lower set.
 4. Some <DIV1>s begin with brief introductions (e.g.,
    p. 150). Treat these in the usual way as
    notes attached to the main <HEAD> for that <DIV>.
