Comment:        Re: SHK 10.1418 Re: First Folio e-texts

For seekers after e-texts, you might consider the project on electronic
resources from the Furness Library at University of Pennsylvania.  Much
of their material is still in the gathering stage, but what is on-line
is interesting.  They're working on providing high quality
photofacsimiles of items in their collection.  So they have available a
number of plays in their Folio versions.  Though the library doesn't
have a Q1 or Q2 Hamlet, they do give a facsimile of the Q3 (1619) text
and the 1623 Folio.  And they offer lots of other relevant material.
Sort of thing that works best if you have a b-i-g monitor and a
whiz-bang internet connection The expanding resource lives at :

http://www.library.upenn.edu/etext/collections/furness

And then there are the neat e-texts of quartos and folio available at

http://castle.uvic.ca/shakespeare/

prepared and packaged under the supervision of Michael Best.  I used
them a lot this summer.   I find them excellent and far more legible
than the straight facsimiles I've used for years when I'm preparing
handouts for general readers.  (Is there anyone out there with simple
routines for turning them into plain text without line numbers?  I end
up with peculiar underlinings that go away only after unrepeatable
manipulation.)

Comment:        SHK 10.1406 Q: Routledge First Folio

Do any list members know anything about the Arden Shakespeare CD-ROM?

Good, bad, indifferent?
