Links to Digital Texts

from Natures Pictures (1671), The British Library, GoogleBooks

Thanks to initiatives like the Early English Books Online – Text Creation Partnership, digital versions of Margaret Cavendish’s writings are publicly available in a variety of places online. This page collects links to those resources, listing them chronologically according to the dates of print publication for the original works. Because they were produced as part of a massive project to digitize the early modern print archive, TCP texts are not perfect transcriptions, so some errors and untranscribed characters or words persist in versions based upon them. A handful of digital editions produced independently of the TCP project are also included below, which feature a greater degree of editorial integrity.

If you know of any other versions of Cavendish’s works freely available online, please contact Jacob Tootalian at jtootalian@usf.edu.
