I'm looking for examples of published synthetic or synoptic
electronic editions; I don't care too much about period or language.
Does anybody have a handy list available or know where I could find one?
By synthetic or synoptic, I mean particularly a critical edition
that attempts to indicate relationships among witnesses to a given text,
and particularly editions that present an "editorial" text with textual
apparatus showing readings from multiple witnesses. I know of some
examples: e.g. the Canterbury Tales Project or Stijn Streuvels De
Teleurgang van den Waterhoek. I am especially looking for examples in
which the editor attempts to reconstruct a hypothetical, editorial, or
emended text that is then associated with a textual apparatus, however
(the two example I've just cited lean towards a "best witness" reading
text). Does anybody have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
