First Experiment: Annotations and Modernising

First Experiment (25.05.15)

(Early Modern Editing Experiments Project)

Taylor’s pamphlet begins with an address to the reader.

John Taylor, Taylor his Trauels Q1 (1620)

John Taylor, Taylor his Trauels Q1 (1620)

My first experiment has been to edit this. Having read the three editions side by side, it seems that the first edition (1620) was used for the Works (1630). In what follows, then, I’ve taken the 1620 edition as my control text. The second edition (Q2, 1621) follows the first edition but includes a different ending because it was published after the Bohemian Revolt (1618-20).
