Abstract:Prosopography of the people involved with publishing and selling of Early English books can be useful for the investigation of diachronic change in that sector. In this study, we developed an analytical bibliography from the metadata available from 25,000 texts published by the Early English Books Online Text Creation Partnership (EEBO-TCP), focusing exclusively on information captured in the ‘Publisher’ field of the original TEI-XML Header. From there, we extracted the named entities associated with “printed by”, “printed for” and “sold by” relationships to generate and analyze a bibliographical network. We extended the EEBOO ontology to accommodate these relationships and generated RDF from the resulting structured metadata, enriching existing triples capturing other information within the dataset. This work is challenging because of the ambiguity and inconsistency in data and therefore can be of interest for further investigation by those with domain specific knowledge.
