Notes: The transcriber's typographic notes:
  • Replace ſ and it's italic variant with the modern 's'.
  • Replace ā, ē, ō and ū with am/an, em/en, om/on and um/un
  • replace vv with the modern 'w'.
  • replace ligatures with their ascii equivalent ( with 'st', ß with 'ss', etc).
  • The double prime (U+2033) is used where it appears in the text for annotation references.
  • Always use the standard ampersand & if a variant of it appears.
  • Type all greek words in plain text.

Templates used

  • don't use {{illegible}} without first checking the alternate scans.
  • For verse numbering, use {{verse}} and not the number. And put directly in front of the word, not with a space. E.g. 2Text-here NOT 2. Text-here
  • If a margin note is referenced with (a), (b), (c), or a star *, use <ref></ref> otherwise use {{MarginNote}}
  • Pay attention to {{hyphenated word start}} and {{hyphenated word end}} this book uses it a lot. ({{hws}} and {{hwe}})
