TITLE: The Pricke of Conscience
ED.  Richard Morris
PUBLISHED: The Philological Society (1863)


En-face? NO.

Key and code the following pages:

  1. Title page (front only)
  2. Table of Contents       = pages [XXXIV]-XLI
  3. Main text               = pages [1]-259


  <FRONT> contains the title page and table of 
  contents only. Encode the Table of Contents
  as a set of nested lists.
  <BODY> contains the body of the poem.
     are used to identify the nine main divisions of
     the poem: the Prologue, seven Books, and
       Note: the divisions between books are not
       easy to see, and the headings for the books
       are not easy to distinguish from the verse
       Prologue    =   pp. 1-11 (no heading)
       Book 1      =   pp. 11-26
       Book 2      =   pp. 26-46
       Book 3      =   pp. 46-73
       Book 4      =   pp. 73-108
       Book 5      =   pp. 108-173
       Book 6      =   pp. 173-203
       Book 7      =   pp. 203-256, line 9532
       Epilogue    =   pp. 256(line 9533)-p.259 (no heading)
     Though the headings have line numbers as if 
     they were part of the verse, ignore those numbers
     (or record them with the "N" attribute of the <LB> 
     tag if that's easier). Sample headings:
       (p.11)  <HEAD>Here bygynnes &thorn;e first part
               &thorn;at es of mans wrechednes.</HEAD>
       (p.26)  <HEAD>Here bygynnes &thorn;e secunde part &thorn;at
               es of &thorn;e world.</HEAD>

Verse and prose

  Bits of Latin prose (in italics) are interspersed in the 
  English verse. Since these are numbered with verse line
  numbers, treat them as part of the verse.
  Example (p.31)
        For þe godspel says on þis wyse:
  1100  Nemo potest duobus dominis ser-
        vire, quia aut enim unum odio ha-
        bebit et alterum diliget, aut unum
        sustinebit et alterum contempnet.
  1104  He says "na man may serve rightly
        Two lordes to-gedir, þat er contrary,
  <L>For &thorn;e godspel says on &thorn;is wyse:</L>
  <L N="1100"><I>Nemo potest duobus dominis ser-</I></L>
  <L><I>vire, quia aut enim unum odio ha-</I></L>
  <L><I>bebit et alterum diliget, aut unum</I></L>
  <L><I>sustinebit et alterum contempnet.</I></L>
  <L N="1104">He says "na man may serve rightly</L>
  <L>Two lordes to-gedir, &thorn;at er contrary,</L>

  Folio references are lacking.

  There are occasional footnotes linked to the text by
  footnote numbers; treat these in the usual way.
  There are a very few marginal scribal notes, e.g., on p. 108, 
  "signa ante judicium." These are difficult to distinguish 
  from the modern English summaries that fill the margins, 
  and may safely be ignored and excluded.
