DigitalDonne: the Online Variorum

First-Line Index to O30

Rawlinson poet. 31, Bodleian Library

Compiled December 16, 2004 by Jacob A. Heil

Proofed and corrected January 8, 2005 by J. Syd Conner

In left-to-right order, each item listed below is identified by (a) its Donne Variorum short form (column blank if noncanonical, which applies to most of the items in this manuscript) (b) a siglum-plus-ordinal-position item tag, (c) its location in the artifact (by folio or page nos.), and (d) diplomatic transcriptions of its heading (HE) and first line.

Note: It is unclear whether the scribe meant items 30a-d to be one poem or four: each item has its own heading, but items 30a-c are followed only by a centered whirlwind flourish instead of the scribe's carefully executed, heavy, double horizontal rule with a whirlwind centered under it (used throughout the manuscript to indicate the end of a poem)--which follows 30d.
