Samuel Beckett - Digital Manuscript Project

Directed by Dirk Van Hulle and Mark Nixon. Brussels: University Press Antwerp et al., 2011. Contains the genetic editions "Stirrings Still / Soubresauts" and "Comment dire / what is the word".
"The Beckett Digital Manuscript Project [...] started from two initiatives: (1) the 'in-house' genetic edition of four works by Samuel Beckett, and (2) the Series of Variorum Editions of Samuel Beckett's Bilingual Works, initiated in 1986 by Charles Krance [.... T] hese initiatives were developed into the Beckett Digital Manuscript Archive, which combines genetic criticism with electronic scholarly editing, applied to the study of Beckett's manuscripts. The Beckett Digital Manuscript Project consists of two parts:
(a) a digital archive of Samuel Beckett's manuscripts, organized in 26 research modules. Each of these modules comprises digital facsimiles and transcriptions of all the extant manuscripts pertaining to an individual text, or in the case of shorter texts, a group of texts. (b) a series of 26 volumes, analyzing the genesis of the texts contained in the corresponding modules.
The Beckett Digital Manuscript Project aims to contribute to the study of Beckett's works in various ways: by enabling readers to discover new documents and see how the dispersed manuscripts of different holding libraries interrelate within the context of a work's genesis in its entirety; by increasing the accessibility of the manuscripts with searchable transcriptions in an updatable digital archive; by highlighting the interpretive relevance of intertextual references that can be found in the manuscripts. [... T] he project brings together digital facsimiles of documents that are now preserved in different holding libraries, and adds transcriptions of Beckett's manuscripts, tools for bilingual and genetic version comparison, a search engine, and an analysis of the textual genesis of his works.

The correspondence of the mathematician Bernoulli

Edited by Fritz Nagel and Sulamith Gehr. Basel: Euler Bernoulli Center / Basel University Library, 2011-. "The electronic edition of the Bernoulli correspondence deals with the correspondence of [7] Basel mathematicians and physicists from the 17th and 18th centuries. [...] Some correspondences [are] already published in book form. [.. .] The aim of the electronic edition of the Bernoulli correspondence is to present carefully composed and quotable letter texts on the Internet.In stages, the images of the handwritten text witnesses are added to the edited texts. The letter texts are provided with comments in footnotes, which are gradually processed and supplemented. The edited texts and the image files of the manuscripts are linked to the entries in the electronic Basel inventory of the Bernoulli-Briefwechsel (BIBB). This means that the letters can be researched using their structured data. The texts themselves can be made accessible through full-text research. The electronic edition offers the advantage of any grouping in the presentation of the letters (chronological, by author, correspondence, etc.) as well as editing in stages. A print version is also available for the texts. "[From resource]

Bloomfield's letters cast new light on many of the issues that concern critics and historians most about the period. " [from resource]

He wrote a notebook between 1981 and 1991, including 145 bound pages and 2 sheets. The notebook includes excerpts that are strictly related to his cultural and social background (eg quotations, annotations, translations from latin, tales). Since the aim of the notebook is not to be publicly shared , his assumptions on the texts he studies are often implicit, so as the bibliographic references of texts he quotes. [...] The contribution of the digital edition is to highlight all the aspects underpinning Bufalini's network of citations, ie, intertextuality and intratextuality . Bufalini's aim is to reason on the history of literature, interpreting influences between his beloved authors, and comparing their texts or ideas. " [from resource]

A Description of the Valley of Chamouni, in Savoy. By Samuel Glover

Ed. by Cian Duffy. A Romantic Circles Electronic Edition. College Park (MD): University of Maryland, 2018. "By the time that Samuel Glover published A Description of the Valley of Chamouni, in Savoy in 1819, the so-called 'valley of wonders' - site of some of the most spectacular Alpine landscapes in western Europe, and of its highest mountain, Mont Blanc - was well established as a place of great scientific importance and as a key attraction for tourists and travelers seeking the mountain sublime. Glover's Description took its place amongst a plethora of contemporary guidebooks and personal travel narratives. [...]
This edition re-situates Glover’s description in the context of eighteenth-century and romantic-period writing about Chamonix-Mont Blanc and details its connections to Troye’s exhibition and to Shelley’s inscriptions. It also attempts to solve what is now the mystery of who Samuel Glover might have been: hardly any information about him survives, and what few details are available are all connected with Description.

The Model Edition Partnership: Documentary History of the First Federal Congress

Ed. by Charlene Bangs Bickford. Washington D.C .: 2009-.

Nine of these offer excellent full texts, two are based on digital images and one contains full texts and images. The texts are marked in SGML / XML, the presentation of the editions partly uses XML / SGML browsers (such as Dynaweb). The individual editions have slightly different focuses and sometimes use different technical solutions. Some of them have been expanded and relaunched over the past few years and have outgrown the "mini-editions".
