Frankenstein Variorum - Annotations

This dataset contains HTML editions of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, paired with a JSON file containing scholarly annotations keyed to particular locations in each edition.

The HTML editions were prepared as part of the Pittsburgh research team’s contribution to the Frankenstein Variorum Project. The 1818, Thomas, and 1831 HTML files were converted with small revisions to Jack Lynch's Pennsylvania Electronic edition by Elisa Beshero-Bondar of the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg. Rikk Mulligan of Carnegie Mellon University supervised the OCR of the 1823 text and Elisa Beshero-Bondar converted this to HTML with corrections. We are grateful for consultation on this process from Raffaele Viglianti, David J. Birnbaum, Wendell Piez, and Neil Fraistat.

Scholarly annotations were authored by Jon Klancher, Avery Wiscomb, Jack Quirk, and Steve Gotzler.

Matthew Lincoln led the technical effort to harvest annotation data from Hypothes.is and align it to collated TEI XML used in the variorum edition.
