Abstract

This is the output of the Digital Editions course at Oxford University, a practical training course in creating a digital edition of an out of copyright text. I digitised a Victorian description of the Sir John Soane’s Museum, London. The museum presents a collection of items from a range of eras. A special aspect of this project is that the museum has remained much the same since Soane's death; in 1833, the founder John Soane secured the preservation of the collection and its presentation, through an Act of Parliament. Soane was an architect and teacher as well as a collector, and designed his museum for teaching, and included residential space and his architectural practice. The text of this edition was encoded using an XML editing software.
