We transcribed and encoded the text of the 1871 Field Diary into XML. The site allows users to download and view all the XML files, raw and processed images produced by the project. Three Versions of the Text enables users to study the evolution of Livingstone’s text; the 1871 Field Diary, the 1872 Journal, and finally the 1874 published text.
