With reference to The English Intelligencer, a word of explanation. This worksheet came out between 1965 and 1968, under the editorship of Andrew Crozier (1st ser.), Peter Riley (2nd ser.), and Andrew Crozier again (3rd ser.); Prynne was responsible for printing it, and also assembled the supplement ‘This is personal’ at the close of the 1st series. It is a bibliographical minefield, not least because every set is slightly different. It is an unbound series of broadsheet pages, sent out at irregular intervals. There were three series, the transitions on both occasions marked by great confusion (the commencement of the 2nd series was repeatedly announced in the journal’s pages before the transition was effected; the beginning of the 3rd series is marked by the abrupt introduction of several sheafs of ink-spattered paper, though the final issue of the 2nd series seems to have been published following the first issue of the 3rd series). As a result, different libraries catalogue TEI in different ways, often numbering the fascicles according to different systems (Cambridge UL does not restart numbering with the beginning of the 3rd series, for instance).
When I cite The English Intelligencer here, I list series, followed by the ‘issue’ number [currently based on the example set by Neil Pattison, Reitha Pattison and Luke Roberts, eds., Certain Prose of The English Intelligencer (Cambridge: Mountain, 2012)], followed by page number. I rely for these citations upon J.H. Prynne’s full set of TEI.
Immense thanks for significant developments attributable to the excellent research work of Justin Katko, Ian Heames, Ryan Dobran, Keston Sutherland, Josh Stanley, Ian Patterson, Nate Dorward, Joshua Kotin, Matthew Hall, Nandini Ramesh Sankar and Martin Waterson; for the blog-literacy of Danyel Payne; and for the downright courageous generosity of JHP.
