Selden Correspondence Online (Cultures of Knowledge)

From Tom Roebuck (Oxford):

A pleasing outcome of last years’ John Selden conference is the availability of transcriptions of almost all of the surviving correspondence of the jurist, historian, Hebraist, and polymath John Selden (1584–1654). The transcriptions have been generously provided by Professor Gerald J. Toomer, who prepared them (originally for his own research purposes, not for publication) in the course of the research for his magnum opus John Selden: A Life in Scholarship (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2009). They have been prepared for online publication by the Cultures of Knowledge project, from whose website they are currently downloadable; they will be available online from September. Enjoy exploring this major new resource – but please note the caveats about copyright!
