Dear Colleagues,

The EMEDD editions of Sir Thomas Elyot's Latin-English dictionary
(1538), of John Florio's first Italian-English dictionary (1598), and of
Randle Cotgrave's French-English dictionary (1611) (among other smaller
texts) are not yet available at

   www.chass.utoronto.ca:8080/english/emed/patterweb.html

but neither are they "ghosts"-Elyot, Florio, and Cotgrave are searchable
locally at Toronto. Proofreading and encoding tasks continue so that
they can go fully on the Web.

All things will come to those who are patient.

Ian Lancashire

While I don't have access to a hardcopy of Florio (still away from my
home institution, after the MLA), I can say that at my last use of the
EMEDD there were 11 dictionaries there, selected by a drop-down menu,
and descriptions for a number more that were forthcoming.  The best
person to check with on this count would be Ian Lancashire, at the U of
Toronto.

All best,
Ray
