Critical Editorial Documents
MoEML is thrilled to announce the forthcoming publication of the complete 1598 text of John Stows A Survey of London. Our TEI-encoded diplomatic transcription is based on EEBO-TCPs XML text. Our research team has corrected the transcription, filled in gaps left by EEBO-TCP transcribers, added additional bibliographical encoding, and identified all the toponyms, people, and dates. Follow our progress on the 1598 text here: Stow (1598) Progress Chart. If you are interested in viewing and providing feedback on a preliminary version of our 1598 Survey, the editorial team would be happy to share a link.
We are applying for another SSHRC grant to encode the 1603, 1618, and 1633 editions of Stows Survey. We plan to build a custom comparator tool for these four editions that will allow you to view the extensive additions and deletions from one edition to the next. We will incorporate digital facsimiles of the volumes as well.
Articles on Stow
For now, you can learn more about Stow and his Survey from these student articles:
Biography of John Stow (1525-1605)
A Survey of London and its Revisions
Before we began our current project of editing the complete text of Stow, MoEML had transcribed selected passages from A Survey:
Lime Street Ward
Selected Passages from A Survey of London [the introduction to the ward-by-ward peripatesis]
The Ward Index will take you to transcriptions of the opening section of each ward description, where Stow traces the boundaries of the ward:
The Map of Early Modern London is comprised of four distinct, interoperable projects: a digital edition of the 1561 Agas woodcut map of London; an Encyclopedia and Descriptive Gazetteer of London people, places, topics, and terms; a Library of marked-up texts rich in London toponyms; and a versioned edition of John Stows Survey of London.
These four projects draw data from MoEMLs five databases: a Placeography of locations (e.g., streets, sites, playhouses, taverns, churches, wards, and topographical features); a Personography of early modern Londoners, both historical and literary; an Orgography of organizations (e.g., livery companies and other corporations); a Bibliography of primary and secondary sources; and a Glossary of terms relevant to early modern London. All of the files in our databases use a common TEI tagset that enables us to work with primary and secondary texts simultaneously.
The Map allows users to visualize, overlay, combine, and query the information in the MoEML databases that populate the Encyclopedia, Library, and Stow editions.
