Work on the Statutes Project done over the last two months:
A blog post: on a satyrical law against make-up and adornments, sometimes taken as real, that I’ve dated back to 1785.
New tables: There is now a complete run of tables of public acts spanning 1807 to 1912, hosted on Github.
And the usual round of automatic corrections to the OCR’d text of the collections of statutes. Whilst still very messy, the text is readable for those volumes in a modern font, and approaching readability for those in old, ‘long-s’ typefaces. Find them on Github.
