News (formerly Newsbooks)

Note: I reviewed the AAT scope note for "newsbooks," and realized I was misusing the genre--newsbooks are serial publications. Instead, most of these can be classified as News bulletins. (But not all: News from the East-Indies, for example, is not expressing news of current events, but an opinion, while Fearefull newes from Coventry is a narrative.)

  10. Het schilder-boeck, 1604. http://hamnet.folger.edu/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?BBID=245757 (JPH).
    : I ended up going down the rabbit hole with this one. The original description (the copy John worked from) was confusing--there were mentions of 2 volumes and various parts with divisional title pages, even though there was nothing in the work that called itself volume or part. The layout did suggest two volumes: parts 1-4 and parts 5-6 each having an engraved title page, tables of contents and errata. In the end, I decided to give the pagination in 300|a as it was, and make several notes that I hoped would clarify the structure of the content.       
  11. Hiberniae delineatio, 1732. http://hamnet.folger.edu/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?BBID=108285 (emj)
    : This atlas turned out to be a real whopper! Luckily, there is a descriptive bibliography of the author. We were able to determine that we had a later reprint. One of the real difficulties was the statement of extent. This was a wholly engraved work, consisting of a series of bifolia, attached at the fold with guard strips and bound through the strips. Many of you will remember this as a discussion topic on DCRM-L some time ago. Because the statement of extent represents physical structure only, there is no justification for describing them as single leaves. That they were bound through the guards instead of through the folds makes no difference to the structure--it's a folio in 2's. Since the 300 |a differs from most other copy, however, I was glad to able to copy the bibliographer's description of the contents and place the note prominently.

That's good to know about the Newsbooks. Thanks for the update about that genre type.

Hi all! Hey I'm having trouble getting onto Hamnet at all, and so I haven't been able to take a look at these completed records. I've tried several times over the last week or two, both by clicking the links in the list above, and when that failed, by opening a new window and going through Folger's main page - no success. I've tried switching browsers - Internet Explorer and Firefox both have failed. Is anybody else having this problem? I'm wondering if there's a limit on the number of external beings who can access Hamnet at the same time, and I just keep picking bad times? Thanks for any help!

Hi John, I haven't had any trouble opening the records in Hamnet. I hope you're able to get in!

John, have you tried executing a new search in Hamnet, by the title or call number?

What operating system are you using? There was an upgrade to Voyager a while back that meant the Web OPAC would no longer open on older Windows machines. But I can't remember off the top of my head where compatibility stopped, and the places I tried to look it up just now weren't the right places.

Thanks for your comments, one and all! - Yes, it turns out it's a compatibility issue - Your Web OPAC doesn't open at all on the Windows machine that I use at work, but it's opening fine on my (newer) Macintosh at home. (I'll bring that up with my higher-ups by way of complaint about the glacial pace at which our hardware and software get replaced and updated...)

Good luck!

Update: It turns out that it was a peculiar problem with our internet provider - there were only four or five libraries whose catalogs we couldn't access, and the Folger was one of those. All fixed now. Happy Holidays!
