Display and navigation of texts
TCP presents digital texts in two forms:
as HTML text and as facsimile images of the original pages. The
default display is the encoded text, which you will see by following
any link to the text from the results display. Links to individual
page images are embedded in the HTML at corresponding breaks.
Navigating a text as HTML
When you are viewing a text as HTML, you will find, at the top
of any given page of the text, a title header that provides links
to view the table of contents for that text, and a link to add that
volume to your bookbag. You may also, if applicable, see links to
previous or succeeding sections.
Navigating and viewing a text as page image
When you begin to view an article or book as an image, you will
also see a separate navigation frame at the top of your browser
that looks like this
This is what the various parts of the navigation bar mean:
Format: allows you to move from one form of viewing to another.
Page no.: Displays the number of the page that you are on,
and also allows you to jump to a desired page. To do so, just
select the number of the page you want to view from the drop-down
Please note that sometimes the box will read "N/A" because
early modern texts often had no page numbers printed on them.
If the symbol appears in the box, it is generally to signal
unnumbered pages at the beginning of a book that has a page 1
after introductory material.
Page size: allows you to size the page larger or smaller.
Search this text: narrow what you're looking for by searching within the complete text.
Previous/Next arrows: These allow you to move to the previous or the next
page in the text.
Your browser's "Find in Page" commands will not work
on this page.
