The Texts

The parallel texts of the 1577 and 1587 editions are now available, enabling users to compare the two versions, and providing navigation by regnal years and Holinshed's original chapter structure.

The underlying images from the two books are currently available to logged in users at Early English Books Online. We hope in due course to link the parallel text edition to these images.
