Title: The shepheardes calendar
Author: Spenser, Edmund, 1552?-1599
Description: 154 p. Transcription of the second edition of that originally prepared in ASCII in 1993 by R.S. Bear from the John C. Nimmo facsimile (London, 1895) of the British Museum copy of the first edition of 1579. A number of errors were found in the first edition and have been corrected; it is to be hoped that new errors were not introduced. Long "s" has been modernized, "vv" has been replaced by "w", and catchwords have been omitted. Sixteenth century usage of "i" for "j" and of "u" and "v" has been retained, along with the original spelling. Text found in the original in Greek has been transliterated within brackets. A few printer's errors have been emended, also within brackets. The poems, which were originally in black letter, have been romanized. "E. K."'s notes in the original and in most editions are arranged in hanging indent paragraphs; these have been reformatted and hyper linked to the poems. The 12 woodcuts are included as inline GIF images.
