I am very excited that I was awarded a grant from the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin (Berlin State Library) for a pilot study for a digital edition of Velthem’s Fourth Part of the ‘Spiegel Historiael’, using TEI-conformant XML. More about this project you can find out from the poster I presented at the DH Summer School Leuven (Belgium), 18 to 20 September 2013. You can access the poster via SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2329548.
I hope I will be able to transcribe and code a great deal of this fascinating manuscript during my two month stay and make its content more accessible to other researchers as well as to the public. I am grateful to everybody who supported the proposal and gave me valuable advice while I was writing it. I will keep you updated about further developments!
