TITLE: Lydgate's Reson and Sensuallyte
ED.  Ernest Sieper
PUBLISHED: Early English Text Society Extra Series 84, 89 (1901, 1903)


En-face? NO.

Key and code the following pages:

  1. Title page (front and back)
     = images 00000007.tif-00000008.tif
  2. Main text = pp. 1-184
     = images 00000025.tif-00000208.tif

  <FRONT> contains the title page only.
  <BODY> contains most of the book.

     with TYPE="section" are used to encode the sections marked by
     bold headings. For example (p.2):
     ¶ Cy comence Lauctour son trayte.
     <DIV1 TYPE="section">
     <HEAD>&para; Cy comence Lauctour son trayte.</HEAD>
     Note that there are some bits in bold text that
     are *not* headings. Headings always have a blank
     line before them.

  Smaller divisions
     Divide the verse text into verse lines (<L>). There
     does not seem to be a need to use line-groups (<LG>).

  Folio references appear in brackets in the margins. They look
  like this:
  [leaf 245]          =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="245">
  [leaf 245, bk.]     =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="245b">
  [leaf 246]          =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="246">
  [leaf 246, bk.]     =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="246b">


  Notes appear alongside the text, not quite in the margin 
  (usually between the text and the printed line numbers),
  sometimes keyed to the text with reference numbers and
  sometimes not. Those that have reference numbers should
  be inserted in the text at the appropriate place, as usual;
  those that lack reference numbers should be inserted at
  the end of the line next to which they appear, also
  as usual. Use <NOTE PLACE="marg"> for both.
  Some odd characters appear (e.g. "n" with an upswept final
  stroke, "h" with a cross-bar, etc.). These should be
  treated as simple "n," simple "h," etc. See Keying/Coding
Special problems

  The margin of each page is headed with an underlined word or 
  name ("The Author"  "Diana"  "Venus"). Treat these as running
  heads, i.e. ignore them. Omit the modern English summaries
  in the margin as usual.
