Recently added to LEME
Neither Rider nor Thorie has been transcribed before.
The addition of Rider’s Bibliotheca Scholastica completes LEME’s series of major English bilingual dictionaries and monolingual glossaries (Thomasius, Rider, Hollyband, Florio, Minsheu, Cawdrey, Cotgrave) published during Shakespeare’s career. Thorie’s Theatre continues LEME’s series of proper- and place-name dictionaries (Rowlands and Dodderidge). LEME now has 633,000 word-entries.
