The Digital Mitford’s Guide to 19th-Century British Postmarks, and How To Code Them in TEI

Sharing from our Digital Mitford Project Blog–a very helpful annotated guide to TEI encoding of the more challenging aspects of 19th-c. manuscript letters.

Here is a colorful, annotated series of powerpoint slides prepared by Greg Bondar, working from my notes on TEI coding, our photos of letters from the Reading Central Library (posted with their permission), and information from the canonical reference tome, Alcock and Holland’s The Postmarks of Great Britain and Ireland. (You really need to borrow the print book from a library-not enough of it is available online.) This should help us with identifying and encoding some of the more challenging aspects of 19th-century mansucript letters! Thanks, Greg!
