British Virginia welcomes proposals for scholarly editions of documents related to colonial Virginia. A proposal should clearly identify the original source for the text, including its location and, if applicable, shelfmark, author, and title. If any other editions of the source have ever appeared, the proposal should list all of them and explain how the proposed edition would complement or supersede them. In any event, it should also explain the type of edition being proposed (type facsimile, critical, &c.) and indicate how much of the design and layout the editor(s) propose to undertake. Proposals would most efficiently go directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
British Virginia is a series of scholarly editions of documents touching on the colony. These original sources range from the 17th-century literature of English colonization to 19th-century slave narratives and beyond. British Virginia editions appear principally in digital form, freely downloadable. The editorial offices sit appropriately at the research university nearest both the falls of the James River, and the site of the first English college planned for this side of the Atlantic Ocean, Henricus Colledge.
