Many thanks to Al Margary for the numerous links, especially the one
below.  The tutorials are done in a quite impressive manner (as Flash 5
movies with options to view various facsimiles).  (I just got a power
mac 5 and a 23" HD screen, so the graphics look particularly good.)

Teachers should look into ERIC--English Renaissance In Context:
http://dewey.library.upenn.edu/sceti/furness/eric/index.html The blurb
says, "ERIC comprises two separate but integrated units: a set of
tutorials on some of Shakespeare's plays and on the making and selling
of books during the Early Modern period; and a database of scanned
texts..."  Contributors to the tutorials include a couple of names
familiar to this list.

I totally agree with Gabriel Egan about this one.  It's such an
invaluable resource, as are those others that Al Magary lists below; and
I really don't mind whipping out the magnifying glass to read the
print-outs (it's rather fun, to be honest!)  Thanks, Al, for making
Holinshed (and others) so easily accessible.

Just to confirm that here in Korea the Holinshed images arrive very
quickly and in magnificent
clarity. A wonderful resource and very well presented. The printable
images, though reduced,
are very legible. The text that Michael Egan wants, searchable and
susceptible to cut and
paste, would be available from the Lion "Literature Online" if they had
not decided that
chronicles are not literature!
