Abstract

Abstract:

This essay narrates a brief history of the Early English Books Online (EEBO) corpus, describing a convergence between bibliography, document imaging, and information science. Whereas literary scholars and book historians tend to express skepticism about EEBO and emphasize its limitations, this essay offers a revisionist and more optimistic perspective in hopes of clearing the theoretical ground for quantitative research.
