Furnivall PUBLISHED: Early English Text Society 24 (1867). SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS En-face? No, except for pp.106-113. (See Guidelines and below for treatment of running parallel texts.) Key and code the following pages: 1. Title page = p.[iii-iv] = IMAGES 00000005.tif-00000006.tif 2. Main text = -128 = IMAGES 00000019.tif-00000146.tif Structure <FRONT> contains the title page. The <BODY> is divided into seventeen unnumbered <DIV1>s with <HEADS> in gothic type: "Hymns to the Virgin, Christ, &c.," "Poems to Christ," "A Song Called þhe Develis Perlament...," etc. Some of these contain <DIV2>s: e.g. "Hymns to the Virgin..." contains three <DIV2>s beginning with "Veni, Coronaberis" "Poems to Christ" contains eight <DIV2>s beginning with "The Sweetness of Jesus." "A Song Called þhe Develis Perlament...," should be divided into two <DIV2>s with TYPE="fit", the first (pp. 41-47) unnumbered (give it N="1"> and untitled, the second (pp. 47-57) numbered and titled (p. 47): <DIV2 TYPE="fit" N="2"> <HEAD>2. A fitte.</HEAD> "Kepe Wel Cristes Comaundement" (pp. 106-113) should be divided into two <DIV2>s corresponding to the parallel versions printed on facing pages: (1) Vernon MS version, even-numbered pp. 106-112 (2) Lambeth MS version, odd-numbered pp. 107-113 Most of the <DIV1>s, however, are simply divided into <LG>s. Milestones Page references appear in brackets in the margins, in this form: [Page 2.] = <MILESTONE UNIT="page" N="2"> [Page 3.] = <MILESTONE UNIT="page" N="3"> and so on. They should be placed at the end of the line opposite which they occur. In some cases a superscript number occurs in the bracket; in such a case, insert the reference at the appropriate place, discarding the superscript numbers, as usual. The "[Col. 2.]" on p. 110 should be recorded as follows: <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="408b:2"> Notes Editorial notes (in brackets) occur sometimes at the beginning of the poem, sometimes at the foot of the page or end of the poem, sometimes in the margins. Those at the beginning of the poem (generally MS. references, with minimal description) should be embedded at the end of the <HEAD> as a <NOTE PLACE="head">. MS information appears at the head of the first poem in parentheses instead of brackets; treat this as a head note too. Notes at the foot (or end) should be embedded at the end of the final line if no other indication is given. Those in the margins should be embedded where superscript numeral indicates, discarding superscript. Footnotes identified by superscript arabic numerals should be embedded as indicated as <NOTE PLACE="foot">, discarding superscripts, as usual. Ignore the note at the beginning of the poem on p.4 ("The heavy Clarendon letters mark the red of the MS.") The final phrase ("Explicit parlamentum...") on p.57 should be treated as a <TRAILER>; the editorial note that follows should be embedded at the end of the last line of verse. Similarly with the <TRAILER>A-M-E-N.</TRAILER> and note on pp. 117, 113, etc.
