The EEBO Introductions Series

Below is a post made by Richard Raiswell to the FICINO list. The link takes you to the new EEBO Introductions Series hosted by ProQuest. This is an interesting development I’ve been tracking for a few months. It’s interesting to see the initial results. It is also worth noting that editions of this sort (i.e., focusing on “a range of contextual, bibliographical, and reception-based issues associated with a work in EEBO that has received no recent scholarly edition”) would not be possible without the accompanying TCP texts.

Announcing the addition of nine new contributions to the EEBO Introductions Series, which can be viewed at:

Thomas Rawlins, ‘The Rebellion: A Tragedy’ (1640), by Anna Fahraeus

William Rowley, ‘A Tragedy called All’s Lost by Lvst’ (1633), by Anna Fahraeus

The EEBO Introductions Series provides concise and informative commentaries on some of the less well known texts in EEBO. Each contribution to the series has been prepared by a specialist in the field of early modern studies and offers insights into a range of contextual, bibliographical, and reception-based issues associated with a given EEBO text.
