Title: The Piers Plowman Electronic Archive 7: London, British Library, MS Lansdowne 398 and Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Rawlinson Poetry 38 (S.C. 15563) (R)
Author: William Langland
Editor: Robert Adams
Abstract: This CD-ROM continues the ongoing collaborative project devoted to the electronic publication of the medieval and Renaissance witnesses to William Langland's Piers Plowman. The edition of the B-version manuscript known as `R' is especially important because of its status as the only reliable witness for one of the two surviving branches of the B tradition.
As is usual for the series, the edited text of the manuscript is presented in four different views -- a diplomatic type-facsimile; a scribal text with indications of scribal error; a critical text with lapsus calami corrected; and an AllTags view that shows all of the editorial interventions on one screen -- along with colour facsimiles and hyper-textual linkages to enable the display of the complex relationships to other B witnesses.
