En-face? YES. Most of the book contains four
parallel texts, one text to each column, 
spread across each opening, with two columns
to a page.

Key and code the following pages:

  1. Title page to Volume 1 (both sides)
  2. Title page to Volume 2 (both sides)
  3. Title page to Volume 3 (both sides)
       = IMAGES 00000003.tif-00000008.tif
  4. Manuscript tables of contents = pp. 1a, 1b,
       2a, 2b, 3a, 3b, 4a, 4b, 5, 6.
       = IMAGES 00000345.tif-00000354.tif
  5. Main text = pages [7]-1586
     = IMAGES 00000355.tif-00001934.tif
  6. Appendices = pages 1587-1674
     = IMAGES 00001935-00002022.tif


  <FRONT> contains the title pages and the 
    manuscript tables of contents.
  <BODY> contains the bulk of the book,

  <DIV1>s are used to separate the main part
  of the <BODY> from the numbered appendices:
    are used to separate the distinct manuscript versions,
    which usually appear in four parallel columns spread
    across each page opening, except in some of the
    appendices. A label designating the
    version appears at the bottom of each column. Use
    the label to determine which <DIV1> the text in that
    column belongs to.
      Sometimes another manuscript is used to plug gaps in 
      one of the main versions (especially in the Fairfax 
      manuscript, second column, which is plugged by bits
      from the Laud manuscript; or in the Cotton manuscript,
      column 1, which is plugged by bits from the Arundel
      manuscript); in these cases the label is doubled,
      with the 'plugged-in' manuscript in parentheses, like
      Use these labels as usual, ignoring the part in 
      parentheses--i.e., treat this column as part of 
      FAIRFAX, not part of LAUD.
    Be on the lookout for cases in which the 4-column/
    4-version arrangement is suspended. In such cases,
    two or more of the columns in a page-opening may
    contain the same version, with the same label.
    Some of these occasions are noted in the page
    references below, but I may not have caught all 
    of them, and you'll have to depend on the label
    at the bottom of the column.
LIST OF <DIV2>s within the various <DIV1>s:
 The first <DIV1> (pp.8-1586) contains (at least) 
 the following <DIV2>s:
    Cotton Vespasian A.3      appears usually in the leftmost
                              column, labelled "COTTON"
        (also in the 1st and 3rd columns on pp. 980/81-
        982/83, 1476-1525, 1543-1551, 1560-1585; in the 1st, 3rd, and 4th cols. on pp.
        984/85; in all four cols., pp. 986/87-990/91, 1552/53-1559)
    Bodl. Fairfax MS 14       appears in the second column, 
                              labelled "FAIRFAX".
        (also in the 2nd and 4th columns on pp. 1476-1525)
    Gottingen MS theol. 107   appears in the third column,
                              labelled "GOTTINGEN"
        (also in the 2nd and 4th columns on pp.980/81-982/83;
        and on the entire page on pages 1468-9)
    Trinity Coll.Camb.R.3.8   appears in the fourth column,
                              labelled "TRINITY," on pp.
    Edinburgh Physicians'
     Colege manuscript        appears in the fourth column
                              on pp. 1367-1435
    Cotton Galba              appears in the fourth column
                              on pp. 1437-1467; the
                              third column on pp. 1527-1547;
                              and second and fourth
                              columns on pp. 1548-1551, 1560-1585;
                              and the second column on p.1586.
  The second <DIV1> (Appendix I, pp. 1587-1637) contains a
  single <DIV2> (EDINBURGH version, all columns).
  The third <DIV1> (Appendix II, pp. 1638-1650) contains a
  single <DIV2> (B.M. ADDITIONAL version, all columns).
  The fourth <DIV1> (Appendix III, pp. 1651-1667) contains
  three <DIV2>s (versions LAUD, BEDFORD, and COLL. OF ARMS,
  variously distributed among the columns on each page.)
  The fifth <DIV1> (Appendix IV, pp. 168-1674) contains
  a single <DIV2> (version FAIRFAX, all columns).

  Use headings as usual as a guide to <DIV3>s. In most cases,
  if there is <DIV3>-break in one version, there should be
  a corresponding <DIV3>-break in the parallel versions.
  Headings that are spread across two columns should
  be entered in *both* columns.


  Folio references typically appear in very abbreviated form, 
  in brackets at the edge of the columns, sometimes, but not
  always, linked to a point in the text with a reference 
  ('footnote') number, like this:
  [1 leaf 138, back, col. 1]  =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="138b:1">
  [1 col. 2]                  =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="138b:2">
  [leaf 139]                  =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="139a:1">
  [1 col. 2]                  =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="139a:2">
  [leaf 139, bk, col. 1]      =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="139b:1">
  [col. 2]                    =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="139b:2">
  [lf 140, col. 1]            =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="140a:1">
  [2 col. 2]                  =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="140a:2">
  [leaf 140, back, col. 1]    =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="140b:1">
  [col. 2]                    =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="140b:2">

  Notes may appear in all the usual places, but most commonly
  within brackets at the edges of the columns (treat these as
  <NOTE PLACE="marg">)
