Digital is good, but analog is better: On the trail of the Viennese Gumpenhuber chronicles

  • Why it is important to examine historical sources in person sometimes

As Ingeborg has already stated in part 1 (https://gudieen.hypotheses.org/284), many visual conditions cannot be correctly captured by the scan and would therefore be inevitably lost in the source description. In addition, pages are often cut off in the digital copy (due to the still stable binding of the volumes), so that whole words disappear, which are however fully captured in the original sources – a far greater problem in the Viennese volumes than in the US volumes. Véronique is still working on the collection of these incomplete passages at the moment.
