Letters of William Herle Project

Description:

"This project draws together in a digital edition the surviving corpus of letters written by William Herle, an Elizabethan intelligencer". The letters help to form a rich resource for understanding and studying Early Modern England. Using XML, each of Herle's letters have beed marked up - preserving many of the features of the letter such as "address-leaves, textual deletions and marginal comments". The rich, searchable archive allows users to browse content by "archival location, date, author, recipient, first line or place from - as well as lists of multiple copies and letters with enclosures".
