The Ames Foundation is pleased to announce the recent publication of the first volume in its new ‘eseries’ The Spoils of the Pope and the Pirates, 1357: The Complete Legal Dossier from the Vatican Archives, edited by Daniel Williman and Karen Ann Corsano.

It is also pleased to announce the publication online of the second volume in the eseries: Appeals to the Privy Council from the American Colonies: An Annotated Digital Catalogue, edited by Sharon O'Connor and Mary Bilder. The publication of a paper version will follow.

And, most recently, it is pleased to announce that final page proofs of The Register of the Official of the Bishop of Ely: 21 March 1374 – 28 February 1382, edited by Marcia Stentz and Charles Donahue, Jr., are now available on this site. The official digital publication and publication of the paper version should follow shortly after the first of the year.

 
 

Paper Publications

On-line publications – the ‘eseries’ (PDF or HTML)

Final page proofs of another volume in this series: The Register of the Official of the Bishop of Ely: 21 March 1374 – 28 February 1382, edited by Marcia Stentz and Charles Donahue, Jr., have now been posted online.

Volumes in the eseries are also available in hard-bond paper copies.

On-line publications – databases and miscellaneous

Digital projects that are in the works include a conversion to database form and transfer to a webserver of Kenneth Pennington’s Bio-Bibliographical Guide to Medieval Canonists.

On-line publications – manuscripts and early printed books

The following digital publications (in many cases undertaken jointly with the Harvard Law School Library) do not, again for the most part, have complete metadata. We are working on it. The images are, however, in all cases, available for those who want to look at them and/or to try to find things in them on their own. In some cases, the metadata may be better than you expect.

On-line publications – manuscripts not yet ‘published’

The link here takes you directly to the Harvard University Library’s Page Delivery Service. All of them have sequence numbers for the images; some of them have folio numbers matched to the sequence numbers; the metadata for MS 189 and 220 are considerably better than that.
