SHORT BATCH DESIGNATION: AT ID # AFY7823 TITLE: Altenglische Legenden ED. Carl Horstmann PUBLISHED: Paderborn: Ferdinand Schöningh, 1875 SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS En-face? PARTIALLY. 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. Structure <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 noþur dunt ne pult.</L> </LG> <LG> <HEAD>Here cometh þe giwes to Josep and makez gret plainte of $Jhu$ for he hadde a child a slawe; ake sethþe $Jhc$ hine a rerde.</HEAD> <L>Aftur al þisilke 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 -80 The "B" text occupies odd-numbered pages -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 -176 and even-numbered pp.178-210 "c" text: odd-numbered pages -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 -225 "B" text: pages -240 Milestones 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). Notes 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; -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>.
