New Featured TypeWright Text: September 2013: The Plenipotentiary 1787

Greetings and Salutations!

Please let me introduce myself, Anne Arundel Locker-Thaddeus, as the new graduate research assistant for ARC, the Advanced Research Consortium.  A Texan by birth, I am a folklore scholar working on my Ph.D. in Anthropology at Texas A&M University.  My areas are contemporary folklore of Mexican Americans and folkloric processes.  However, my amateur interest in the 18th century began with Georgette Heyer novels in my teens—we all have to start somewhere!—and continues today.

One of my tasks is to choose items to feature in TypeWright!   My first selection is already posted on the site, but I would welcome suggestions from any of you out there who run across interesting (editable) material.

 


 

Plenipotentiary

 

The Plenipotentiary (1787)

The Plenipotentiary is a three-volume British periodical that satirizes the latecentury politics.

Metadata about the work is very sparse, giving little indication of authors and editors.  The work has been mechanically typed but the transcription needs correcting: if you are interested in reading it, click here!
