[Milton-L] Uploading Milton's COMMON-PLACE BOOK

John,

This effort of yours is very kind,  but I must warn everyone that the revised Camden Society edition did not distinguish between Milton's own text and the pages filled in the interim by Sir Richard Graham, Viscount Preston (1648-1695), whose family held the book until its discovery.  Ruth Mohl has provided information on which pages were Graham's, at least in YP 1.344-45, and surely also in her monograph on Milton's Commonplace Book.  There may be other difficulties with the 1877 as well. Unfortunately I don't have either the Yale Prose or Mohl's monograph with me right now , but perhaps someone else can supply the information.

Cheers,

Subject [Milton-L] Uploading Milton's COMMON-PLACE BOOK



I just finished digitizing the text and am uploading the files to:
 
http://www.johngeraghty.com/Literature/Texts/Milton/commonplace_book_1877/ (http://www.johngeraghty.com/Literature/Texts/Milton/commonplace_book_1877/)
 
My upload speed is slow but they should all appear within a couple of hours.  A few are accessible now.
 
They are listed by hyperlinked filenames and, I believe, should appear in the proper page sequence.
 
I will be back this evening (9pm  PST) to check on the upload.  Email me directly with questions.
 
-John

If you do not get a better answer, I have a copy of the Camden Society's 1877 printing (not a facsimile).
 
I could digitize and post.
