The Holinshed Project

Description: 

"Holinshed's Chronicles of England, Scotland, and Ireland was at once the crowning achievement of Tudor historiography and the most important single source for contemporary playwrights and poets, above all Shakespeare, Spenser, Daniel, and Drayton". The aim of The Holinshed Project is to "stimulate a comprehensive reappraisal of the Chronicles as a work of historiography and a major source for imaginative writers". To achieve this goal The Holinshed Project has developed an accessible, annotated, parallel-text edition of the old-spelling version of the Chronicles. The Holinshed Project archives both the 1577 and 1587 editions - fully transcribed and integrated with the EEBO page images.
