At the moment (Q4 2019) there is no facsimile proper on Scholarly Editions. But DSS and Brill325 comes close.


For publication of facsimile editions on Scholarly Editions, CTS compliant TEI XML is required.

Let's start with the TEI. Let's assume a simple facsimile edition of manuscript, with an image and transcription for each page. In such a case, TEI advises to insert a <facsimile> element between <teiHeader> and <text>. This element basically contains a list of images, expressed in the form of closed <graphic> element, like this:

      <graphic url="page1.jpg" xml:id="page1"/>

The transcription of that page is found somewhere in <text>, for example in some <div>. The <div> has @facs attribute that refers back to the image, like this:

   <div facs="@page1">
      <ab>[transcription of page 1]</ab>

This is a simple example. More complex ones will be added when required. Think of overlapping images, zones, ROIs or bounding boxes...


There are several types of transcription: diplomatic and normalized and what not. This is handled in the TEI XML. See the Guidelines.


The basic idea is that image and text both represent an abstract object, e.g. a page in a printed book. The abstract page gets an identifier, and so do its manifestations. A single object can have many different manifestations: multiple images, multiple transcriptions, etc.

The object identifier needs to be a CITE URN. So does the image URN. Text has a CTS URN.

The abstract object URN gives us the manifestation URN, in CITE and in CTS (though there may be difference between them). Also, from the URN, the file name of the images and the xml ids (values of @facs) are derived.

An example:

Abstract page URN:


Remember that this is the official CITE URN syntax: urn:cite:citenamespace:collection.object@subreference. For the sake of simplicity, in this example the CITE namespace is identical to the CTS namespace. The collection and object identifier are harder to distinguish because of all the full stops. Basically, the collection is AntonioVallisneri.PrimiItinerisSpecimen and the object is folio.IV.v.

A concrete page URN would be:


However, this is no used (at least so far...). Instead, we use the identifier of the image in the XML:


and this, really identical, file name:


Note the presence of the version identifier eos-lat1.

Some practical points regarding workflow:


A facsimile edition is a git repo like any other. Place it under Data in Brill's GitLab. Do this only for the XML, following the CapiTainS guidelines. There is no need for version control on the images, therefore they don't go into git.


Place the images in the hotfolder G:\iiif (= O:) and they will be transported to the iiif server.

file names

The iiif server is one large name space. No folders or subgroups. Therefore, the file names of the images need to contain all information we need. We follow CTS, so this is the syntax of a file name:


For example: AntonioVallisneri.PrimiItinerisSpecimen.folio.IV.v.eos-lat1.jpg

We cannot have semicolons in a file name, or other signs that make an operating system unhappy. Full stops are ok, so we'll have plenty of them.

What if we have groups of images? For example thumbnails and large images, or infrared ones? This information needs to go into the version identifier too.

For example: AntonioVallisneri.PrimiItinerisSpecimen.folio.IV.v.eos.infrared-lat1.iri

xml facs attribute

The value of @facs has to start with #. It makes sense to make the rest of the ID identical to the file name, and to the urn.

xml url attribute

The value of the @url attribute of <graphic> is identical to the filename. It is not a URL or path.

However, there are important hints that this may be a pretense. The handwriting in the main manuscript is unmistakably Vallisneri’s: since the document was draft (and a significantly reworked one, too), it is unlikely that he copied again the entire Latin text from another document, which in turn was a translation from an Italian text he had already edited. Furthermore, several studies prove that Vallisneri often used false names, or the names of his pupils, as a strategy to conceal and protect himself against potential criticisms—which in this case may have been addressed to the prose style of the document or to terminological misunderstandings. On this topic, see Generali 2004, 155–156, 176–177; 2007a, 383–412; Luzzini 2013a, 91; 2014a, 209.
