I spent a few hours at the Performing Arts Library last Saturday, and I can report the following:
— NYPL computers do enjoy access to EEBO
–Not all books on EEBO have been rendered into modern text. The copy of “Mad Men of Gotham” I printed out several years ago had been so rendered. Another work (see below) has not.
— EEBO does have a copy of “The Dreames of Danielle”. One of the original, pre-1600 printings. The printing is not easy to read. I did not have the presence of mind to print out these pages (rather, the number of pages (10) permitted from the library printer). At some future point I may do so and attempt my own rendering into modern print.
–The Arden Shakespeare’s copy of Cymbeline (1955 edition) does indeed contain a copy of a 1560 printing of “Frederyke of Jennen”. I copied it, with deep gratitude to editor J.M. Nosworthy, and am in the process of summarizing it for performance 8)
