Scanning Exercise: Crevecoeur's Sketches of 18th-Century America

We already have an electronic edition of Crevecoeur's Letters From an American Farmer. Now I want to begin the process of adding to it his Sketches of Eighteenth-Century America. This text is approximately 250 pages long, much too long for MA03 to do by itself. But we can make a beginning by doing about half of that.

As with the mark-up exercise, I'll post a list of chapters on my door and ask you to sign up for one of the blocks of text. The general protocols are: set it 90% table, chapter title in header2, back and forward links in Caps at bottom of each chapter (linking to the previous and next chapter), fontsize +1.

I'll place this volume on local reserve in the American Studies Lab.
