More Hazlitt: Table-Talk Volume II

Feeling somewhat better lately - less miserable - I also can do a little more, and used that to prepare Hazlitt's Table-Talk Volume II on line for my site. The background was given in More Hazlitt: Table-Talk Volume I so here are links to the title-indexes for the volumes:

Meanwhile, I have also provided links to names and terms used in by Hazlitt in Volume I, and have done the first 10 (from 16), which is considerable more trouble than copying and pasting from Project Gutenberg's edition of the two volumes in 1 big html file.

You find that under the last link, and I should say that meanwhile I have corrected several typos in it - between 5 and 10 - that hit my eye, all apparently scanning errors of one letter, and/or a lack of French accents in French words.

Incidentally, since I am not a lit crit nor a professor of English Literature I take no scholarly pride in correcting misprints and typos, and do so without saying, on the principles that Hazlitt knew how to spell, and would have wanted to see this corrected.

Also, since I do intend to write my notes to these essays - that is one of the reasons to have them on my site: To be able to comment on them, as is the whole section of philosophers

it certainly is also my intention to compare the edition on my site with my paper editions of Table-Talk in Everyman's Library, though I also do not intend to do any close proof-readings.

This is to be done later, and as is there is as of today a full version of Table-Talk on my site, with the first third meanwhile also provided with links, mostly to Wikipedia entries, for names and terms Hazlitt uses, that I also intend to provide for all essays, simply because it is quite helpful, and seems to me what internet and html are very good for: Linking information.

Indeed, being myself of a decidedly scholarly type of mind, it is quite clear to me that being a scholar with a computer with fast internet is quite different from  being a scholar with a typewriter and a good personal library, and maybe I should write out one of these days some of the salient differences.

That's again a later eventuality, and for the moment you can read Table-Talk on my site if you want to.

P.S. Corrections, if any are necessary, have to be made later.
