Recommended Readings

The bibliography presented here is intended to provide readers with a selective introduction to scholarship on Sartor Resartus. It includes works that reflect upon the narratological structure, politics, and context of the volume, but of necessity omits many valuable studies that engage with the more minute details of Carlyle’s writing.

Juxta Comparison Set

This page contains the collated comparison set of our three source texts available at Juxta Commons. We have shared this comparison set with the original 1839 version (abbreviated DUM) designated as the base text for comparison, but users may change the base text by following the instructions in the Juxta Commons User Guide. We have shared the comparison set in the heat map visualization, but users may also change that view.

Juxta Collation

This page contains the raw historical collation of our three source texts produced by the collation software Juxta. As detailed in our “Note on the Text,” we have signficantly edited this Juxta apparatus to compensate for some of its redundancies, but we believed readers should have access to it as the starting point for our collation and textual annotations for this edition. We should note that this collation was produced using the legacy Javascript-run version of Juxta rather than the web-based version offered on Juxta Commons.

Protocols for Scholarly Proofreading

This document details the protocols we used for proofreading the transcriptions we made of our three source texts into Microsoft Word. These protocols are and have for centuries been standard proofreading practice in trade publishing. They are designed to ensure that transcriptions (re-keyboardings) of manuscript and printed source texts into machine-readable programs like Microsoft Word correspond EXACTLY to the original source texts.

Protocols for Transcribing and Formatting Textual Witnesses for Scholarly Editing

This document details the protocols we used to transcribe our three source texts into Microsoft Word and to format the resulting Word files so that they would be maximally compatible with the procedures of critical editing and with the collation software Juxta that we used. Aside from stipulating uniform formats for font, paragraphing, and such, these protocols minimize the ways that the various default and automatic settings in Word may interfere with accurate transcription of source texts.
