Experimental searches in the
croalabib database – what do we learn about Croatian Latin textual practices?
A dynamically created table croalabib-ql shows numbers of books (with texts by Croatian Latin authors) published for each century 1450-1850. The table also lists books for which the
@period is not yet been entered, and the sum total of all books recorded in the
We have to record
@period for about a third of records in the database (1500 out of 5868).
A list of authors with number of books they published (as main authors) is here:
The list is sortable – click on headers to see maximum and minimum values, or to order authors alphabetically.
This list is also a work in progress (it lists some Greek authors, for example).
The following page lists (most of) places where books with texts by Croatian Latin authors were published. Links lead to reports on number of books published in each city.
ID numbers were taken from the GeoNames database.
This is a prototype: not all cities are listed, not all publications have places marked up.
<pubPlace>element; most of them contain text, either directly or inside an
<add>element (place of publication was not stated on the title page, but it was identified by the bibliographer)
<pubPlace>elements – names in Latin, in various funny forms – was sent as a query to CERL Thesaurus, which lists many Latin and other phrases identifying places of publication
