Digital Historical Documents

document has been laboriously scanned and converted into Portable Document Format (PDF) for

Document Format
For these digital facsimiles, I try to work from the clearest and best sources available to me at the
time. Generally these documents are scanned on a flatbed scanner and then the individual pages
are assembled using Acrobat to create the PDF files. PDF was chosen because of the freely
available reader and its compressed format made it ideal for Internet distribution.

Further Information…
I have placed a number of transcriptions and translations on the Web. You may find these
documents off of my Elizabethan Fencing web page at:
