Subject: Re: Early English Books
I am unsure as to whether this information has been posted on the list
before or not, however, members of the list will be interested to know
that the Early English Books Online Database offers certain texts free
to non-subscribers. One of these is the 1623 first Shakespeare folio,
which is a clear, high-quality reproduction of a Folger Library copy.
All that is needed to download the images are a small piece of software
available onsite which I obtained in a few minutes. The edition
available even contains Troilus and Cressida.
Also available free of charge is Marlowe's Hero and Leander, Jonson's
Sejanus, and Heywood's "The exemplary lives and memorable acts of nine
the most worthy women in the world"
