INFO ON E-VERSIONS

In the listings on these pages:

Reference edition refers to an electronic edition of an Schevill-Bonilla volume. It is an old-spelling version, very close to the first published edition of the work involved (princeps), but which corrects numerous typographical and and other errors, such as those involving inadvertent modernization. The end notes are not included at present. End-note indicators [(*)] have been retained together with the S-B page and line numbers.in the single-volume editions; in the combined-volume versions, e.g., the complete 1605 Quijote (Vols. I and II combined), page numbers, line numbers, and end-note indicators have been eliminated.

Modern edition refers to a modern adaptation of the Schevill-Bonilla texts. Spelling and accentuation have been modernized and standardized, and end-note indicators [(*)] have been eliminated; however, most aspects of grammar have have not been changed. In the single-volume editions, line and page numbers have been retained; in the combined-volume versions, e.g., the complete 1605 Quijote (Vols. I and II combined), page numbers, line numbers, and end-note indicators have been eliminated.

Self-extracting Zip files are alternate versions of the files for IBM compatible users who experience problems in downloading long files. These versions are only one-third as large as the uncompressed files and load very fast since your browser does not have to format them and print them to the screen. To make the corresponding HTM files, just run these programs at the appropriate prompt; for example: running DQSB1.EXE will cause that program to create the file DQSB1.HTM (that is, volume one of the old-spelling Don Quijote text).

The text for all versions has been unhyphenated to facilitate electronic searches. It is given in HTML format, but with a minimum of HTML encoding. Normal S-B conventions are used: square brackets are used to indicate additions to the original text and parentheses reflect superfluous material. For example, if the edición príncipe would read “Don Quixo de la Manchas”, the S-B version might correct it to: “Don Quixo[te] de la Mancha(s)”.

If you find any errors in the texts or have any recommendations, please let me know.
