Marginal Terminology

July 19, 2012

Patrick Spedding of the Centre for the Book at Monash Univesrity recently posted a list on his blog with terminology used to describe annnotations in books.  The list, he promises, is a work in progress.  It is also very much worth a look.

On Monday Jeffrey P. Barton posted a question on the EXLIBRIS-List concerning how to describe various manuscript annotations to books. Jim Kuhn directed Jeffrey to The Shakespeare Quartos Archive (here), to a fabulous list of manuscript annotations in the “Encoding Documentation” section (here), based on the OED and/or Peter Beal’s Dictionary of English Manuscript Terminology (2008).
