I am supervising a student at CCH/KCL who is working with the writings of several American scholars from the 19th century. At this point his work would benefit from having a control corpus of 19th century American intellectual writing that he could use for various kinds of statistical comparison. He would welcome both literary-oriented and non-literary (scientific?) texts, and even material that although written for an intellectual audience appeared in the non-scholarly press.
He is checking out what is available in Project Gutenberg already. Is there a member of Humanist who could suggest other possible digital textual sources?
Many thanks for your suggestions.
