This is a legacy resource. It is likely to be difficult to use, and is now mainly of interest for the study of the history of text encoding or digital humanities.
Encoding format: Plain text
No Capital letters
Text only is transribed, not editorial notes on the ms.
Gollancz's textual emendations appear without being indicated as such
Transliteration scheme: "th" for the sound as in "thorn" ; "3" for the sound as in "yough"
Gollancz inserts a hyphen where, in the ms., two words are erroneously written without a space between them. The electronic text renders such words as one word
