Subject: Item for a Humanist roundup?

I'm not certain whether this is an appropriate posting for The Humanist,
but the Richard III Society (American Branch) has been working for some
time on an online library of primary texts and secondary sources related
to the Ricardian controversy. Since Richard Bear has just done Thomas
More, we have interrupted our production of an HTML edition based on a
nineteenth century text derived from Rastell; but we do have an excerpt
of Holinshed in process, and have already produced editions of the
Croyland Chronicle, the Arrivall of Edward IV, the Warkworth Chronicle,
excerpts of Polydore Vergil's Anglica Historia, and the full text of
Horace Walpole's Historic Doubts on the Life and Reign of Richard the

These electronic texts have been produced by a small group of amateurs,
and do not pretend to be the last word in scholarship, although we do
hope to refine them with a second proofreading, commentary, and so on, at
some time in the future.

They can be accessed at the following URL:
