Under Construction

As of this date, 3/18/05, this site is still under construction. However, volume II of The Works of Anna Laetitia Barbauld is now completely copyedited and mounted as TEI files. (About the Use of TEI at this site.)

Some texts -- all the stories, letters, and essays in Aikin's Works -- are also available as TEI-encoded documents (XML files)

Other text files, those that appear here ONLY as HTML documents and images (PDFs) but are not yet TEI-encoded, have not yet been corrected for typing errors, though we are slowly getting that done. Please check the text against the image file before quoting.
