... edition A type of *documentary edition . Unlike type *facsimiles , which attempt to duplicate the exact appearance of source documents, diplomatically transcribed editions faithfully reproduce the linguistic aspects of their sources (e.g. wording, punctuation, spelling, capitalization), but not bibliographical characteristics, such as layout, typeface and size. The strictest transcriptions reproduce absolutely every textual element, including all *accidentals , abbreviations, corrections, and errors. Semi-diplomatic transcriptions emend those...

...of production, or taste as a principle of authority—respond to different disciplinary and social sources and functions in the edition. For most of the 20 th century, literary scholarship, particularly in English, privileged the author and used bibliographical and critical processes in order to reach a putative authorial text hidden or corrupted by subsequent error. Historians, by contrast, have generally preferred *diplomatic editions (i.e. a text faithfully transcribed from its appearance in a particular document) or a type- or photographic *facsimile of...

...revels at Gray’s Inn in 1594 suggest that the play was composed, or at least completed, early in 1595 . Text: The surviving 1598 quarto of the play claims to be ‘Newly corrected and augmented’, but in all probability this is an exaggeration and the edition is merely a reprint of a now lost earlier edition of the same year. The text seems to have been set, fairly carelessly to judge by certain passages which seem to preserve two successive drafts of the same speech (in 4.3), from Shakespeare’s own foul papers . The play was reprinted in the Folio in ...

...printing came to Kyoto at the request of Japanese monks and worked for some years as printers. Around a quarter of all the editions produced by Zen temples were of Chinese secular works, starting in 1325 with an edition of a collection of poems by a monk of the Tang dynasty. This, like many other such editions of Chinese works, was a facsimile of an imported Chinese edition. The first canonical Chinese text printed in Japan was an edition of the Confucian Analects printed in the trading community of Sakai, south of Osaka, in 1364 , and in 1481 Zhu Xi ’s...

...increasing diplomatic, trade, and colonial ties [ see *empire, 5 ]. Thus the European trading companies established at Canton in the eighteenth century provided a fragile foothold in China and encouraged the growth of interest in products of the Chinese empire. The creation in 1790 of a Chinese Room at the Prince of Wales's London residence of Carlton House, followed in 1802–4 by the decoration of the Regent's Pavilion at Brighton in a fanciful Chinese style by the firm of Crace, took place during a period of increasing diplomatic activity,...

...Independence freed printers from the royal *copyright on bible publication: petitioned by Presbyterian clergymen, a committee of the Continental Congress recommended the publication of an American edition of the Bible. After Congress fled from Philadelphia, the Scottish émigré printer *Aitken undertook the venture on his own, producing five successful editions of the New Testament. Unfortunately for Aitken, he decided to print the entire Bible just before the war ended—and the resumption of British imports undercut his initiative with cheaper bibles. As...
