MT: I pick this one! I corrected "CARNIAEM" to "CARNIAE". I also made "Finitarumque" lowercase; I think it just means "and neighboring". Can someone with good Latin confirm? 2/9/13

Image: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c1/Blaeu_1645_-_Ultraiectum_Dominium.jpg


TF: Note: I'm not sure this would be an appropriate example; perhaps we can find a longer title with more i/j, u/v conversion.
MT: Source is actually in all caps: VLTRAIECTVM DOMINIVM. It would actually be instructive to have an example that illustrates following the chart in Appendix G4 (as opposed to usage in the text), but in the image I do see a pattern of usage in the text (lowercase "u" used as a vowel in the medial position). So, this doesn't seem like an example of a situation where we have to use the chart as a last resort. 2/9/13

MT: The punctuation after "BVLGA" looked more like a double line than a single line, so I transcribed it as "=". If others disagree, let me know. Also, I didn't think it necessary to include the u/v comment since this rule is not about converting case so I left it out (but I appreciate the confirmation that the u/v transcription is correct). 2/9/13

The most high mighty and most excellent prince ----------------- prince of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, and Duke of Cornwall


Dedicated to "The most high mighty and most excellent prince ----------------- prince of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, and Duke of Cornwall" by William Berry.

Bib. record: http://orbexpress.library.yale.edu/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=8468346


MT: Interesting example! I'm wondering if maybe this indicates a blank intended to be completed in manuscript, as in 0G6.4, and thus should be transcribed as "The most high mighty and most excellent Prince [blank] ..."??? Have others seen examples like this?  8/27/12

TF: When I first saw this, I also thought it might fit 0G6.4. Blank spaces, but the rule states "... a blank space intended to be completed in manuscript ...," which made me rethink it. There are quite a number of others maps by Berry in this same volume that also have dedications, all of which have engraved names. I wouldn't think Berry left it blank to be filled in manuscript; perhaps he was hedging his bets during a time of tricky political changes; or perhaps the throne was changing hands so many times, he didn't have time to engrave a new name?

MT: I found another example that seems less ambiguous so I've used that instead (the Pundit A- K- example below). 9/20/12

MT: Although the bib record has the underscores transcribed as two hyphens after each initial (Pundit A-- K--), the underscores look like single pieces of type to me (albeit long ones). So I transcribed them as single hyphens. Even though I like the look of the double hyphens better. 9/20/12

Descipcion [sic] de la costa occidental del Seno Mexicano

Bib & Image: http://www.loc.gov/item/90683609 

Status: Used 8/13/12

MT: What do you all think about the "dela" vs. "de la" question? Source has "dela"; bib record has "de la" (so that's how I transcribed it here). But I'm not sure if that is right. If this is an example of 0G4.2 ("If spacing between words in the source is ambiguous, or lacking, include spaces in the transcription to separate the words as needed"), it is correct. If it is an example of or 0G4.3 ("Do not insert spaces within single words that merely represent variant or archaic spellings"), it isn't. My knowledge of modern Spanish tells me to transcribe as "de la" but it may be an archaic spelling that should be left alone for all I know. I don't think that "Descipcion" is an archaic spelling, by the way; let me know if you know otherwise. 8/13/12

TF: I spoke with Ellen J. here at Sterling and she said "dela" is an archaic spelling of "de la." Thus, I believe this is an example of 0G4.3.

MT: I've changed the transcription to "dela", but kept the overall example in 0G7.1 (the word "Descipcion" is what is illustrating 0G7.1). 9/1/12

Plan of the town of Baltimore and it's [sic] environs


Image: http://www.loc.gov/resource/g3844b.ct000792/  

MT: I'm not sure if we should add this one or not. 0G3.2 (apostrophes) has an example "H. Jalliots map of the seat of war in Italy" and it doesn't have a "[sic]" after "Jalliots". Just as we don't use "sic" to signal archaic spelling, we don't use it to signal archaic punctuation styles. This is a more modern example so there might be more justification in calling it a misprint but I'm not sure if apostrophe use was standardized to that degree even in the middle of the 19th century. Maybe it would be better to stick with examples of words that are clearly misprints? 5/18/13

MT: Note: This example has already been used under 1E4, so if we add sic here we'll have to add it there as well (or delete the example from there). 5/18/13

MT: I don't think we need a 3rd example anyway. We already have one example for each method (sic vs. i.e.), so that should be enough. I've deleted "C example needed" from the draft. 9/21/13

MT: Not sure what the archaic spelling is; should we stick with examples that will be more obvious to a general reader who might not know German? One example might be enough here anyway. 5/18/13

0G7.3 Guide letters

MT: This one has guide letters but they are internal (not on the t.p.) so we wouldn't be transcribing them anyway. I think this might be a hard example to find. 5/16/13


LSC: The image is not accessible to everyone; I got this message: Due to licensing agreements, we can no longer grant visitors from institutions with .edu domains access to HistoricMapWorks.com. 5/16/2013
MT: I have no trouble accessing this from home. I haven't tried accessing from work. 9/21/13 

LSC: Is this rule necessary for DCRMC?  5/16/2013

TF: I suppose an early atlas can have blank spaces for guide letters on the t.p., but as Manon points out, finding an example might be a bit too difficult. I propose keeping the rule, but stop trying to find an example. 5/17/13
MT: Per our decision at ALA Annual 2013, we kept the rule and I added the following pair of hypothetical examples. 9/21/13

0G8/0G9. Abbreviations/Superscripts

RB: We don't really need any more examples here (except for 0G8.2), but if you want to include another, here's one that could fit into either 0G8.1 or 0G9 (the "l" in "Centl." is superscript; see below).

MT: I think one example is probably enough for 0G9. I don't see how this example would illustrate 0G8.1. For that one, we'd want text that wasn't abbreviated in the source in order to show that we transcribe it as found (e.g. Source: Printed by ABC Company. Transcription: Printed by ABC Company (NOT "Printed by ABC Co."). But I think we can do without an example in 0G8.1 2/9/13

0G8.2 Abbreviations

MT: This example does not have as many expansions of "special marks of contraction" as the DCRM(B) example, but perhaps it will do? Those with Latin, please check my transcription (and also let me know if you would punctuate this any differently)! However, I am wondering if the title at the top of the map ("Moscauw") should be the title proper instead (in which case we need a new example!)? Moscow seems to be more precise than Moscovia (which I think was a larger jurisdiction). The map does depict a little bit more than just the city itself, but not much more. Would 1B1.1 have us pick "Moscauw"? 2/10/13
