DigitalDonne: the Online Variorum

First-Line Index to AF1

Mapletoft Volume, United States Air Force Academy, Colorado (ms. emendations & additions to a copy of A)

Compiled February 8, 2001, by JoAnna Klein

Expanded & emended January 3, 2002, by J. Syd Conner

Because the manuscript emendations (of printed text) that comprise AF1 frequently are not made in headings or first lines, the first part of this index, which deals with emendations, excludes the usual transcriptions. Instead, it lists items printed in the volume that contain substantive emendations in manuscript, identifying them by Donne Variorum short form and the page numbers where they are located. The second part of the index deals with whole entries copied onto blank pages immediately following the printed volume's last numbered page (406; page numbers below for this section are bracketed). In left-to-right order, each item in this section is identified by (a) its Donne Variorum short form (nc = noncanonical), (b) its location in the artifact (by page no.), and (c) diplomatic transcriptions of its heading (HE) and first line. %X = element centered on the page.

This index last corrected on March 3, 2003.
