Hello everyone, In case some are unaware (as I posted this in the General forum) I would like to let everyone know about this PB project I have been working on for about 6 months. Its called "The Complete EEBO-PD Unformatted Puritan Collection. Out of a list of 650 or so potential Puritans, I was able to find in EEBO's public domain catalogue; works for about 425-450 Puritans, which total  4,688 distinct works. These were all taken from the Public Domain area of EEBO that can be found freely on the web. No EEBO-Proquest resources were used. What makes this applicable, is these books have been converted to text by the TCP (Text Creation Partnership) making them searchable in Logos. I have no choice but to leave the text unformatted, as of right now I have 124 volumes and close to 260,000 11pt pages of works completed. Each volume ranges from roughly 2,000 - 3,000 pages a piece. My goal with this collection is to make available a fully searchable Puritan Index within Logos. One can do this by uploading the books, giving it the same title, while changing the vol. #'s, then auto-adding them to a collection. This makes these specifically Puritan works searchable by scripture, keyword, phrase, and author. While I have completed about 335 authors, spanning around 3,600 works; I still have about 120 authors to go. The reason I am posting this now, is to give people time to upload them, as 100+ volumes does take time. While some Puritans within this collection, Logos has works of, they are not to be comparable to the Logos editions which are complete, formatted, tagged, and edited. They are not competition in any way for those who want to leisurely read the Puritans; Logos editions are far superior. But, I cant have a complete Puritan Collection, well, without it being complete. Out of the 425-450, Logos may have complete works for 15-25 of them. This collection doesnt strive to be a complete collection of all the works of each author, but only a complete collection of the authors works available on EEBO-PD. The criteria for garnishing the names for inclusion was Brooks 3 vol. "Lives of the Puritans," Beeke and Pedersons "Meet the Puritans," APM ( A Puritans Mind) Puritan Bios, and miscellaneous posts on The Puritan Board. Once the collection is complete, I will see if it can be uploaded to Person Book Wiki. 

Not only can this Index be searched in its entirety under a single Collection, I also learned a trick to isolate the authors within the collection, to search within distinct authors instead of the entire collection; that is <P-author code> "keyword", so for example <P-JJ2> "faith" would return all the places faith is mentioned in the works of John James, then go to "Search Result" and scroll through where it is included within each individual work of that author. This can be done for keywords, scripture, phrases, etc. Below is a list of the authors that will eventually be included. I am only up to John Shower as of today. The link to the files is below. Keep that link as all future files will be there, until completion and hopefully being posted on Personal Books in LogosWiki. If you dont see a Puritan you know, chances are EEBO doesnt have it, but feel free to let me know and I will check. Again, none of these were taken from EEBO's Proquest copyrighted catalogue, but only the text in the public domain available to all online. God bless. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/10yUM3Ni83ADI03PX-QNh2nUXHusUNZJ4?usp=sharing

When creating the books, it will have a few errors due to fonts; and some will have many warnings; this is usually dealing with something having to do with length. You can ignore those. This is because these documents are not formatted, and are used for deep mining of the Puritans as opposed to generally reading them; though one can do that too. I hope this blesses someone. Talk to yall later.

Thank you David!  What an excellent resource this will be!  Also, thank you for providing title jpgs for each resource. (It took me quite while to figure out what EEBO was--Early English Books Online. 

That raises a question for either you, or perhaps others who have downloaded (or are downloading) the files:  How are you choosing to compile these and incorporate them into your library?  One Personal Book per resource?  That will result in a hundred some new personal books in my library, which will make scrolling through looking for other resources more difficult.  But with the the size of these resources, it also seems impractical to compile all hundred and some of them into one or two resources.  Even if Logos would compile them, they would seem to take quite a while to load and slow down you computer when accessing these resources.  And yet I want to have access to them?

How are any of you choosing to incorporate these into your personal book libraries? 

Thanks again, David, for all the work you are putting into this/these.

Library of Early English History (25,368 docs.) | Logos Bible Software is one document per resource It is based on EEBO - I hope without overlap with this project.

In all honesty, there will probably be little overlap if any. The Logos EEBO "25,368" is only a fraction of the Puritan works included in the collection I am creating. This has to do with several reasons. First being the "25,368" comes from "EEBO 1" PD Collection. This leaves out 34,963 works in the EEBO 2 Public Domain collection which many of the works in the collection I am creating comes from. Also, as seen on the resource page in Logos, their collection dumps 25,368 titles in your library as Monographs, that I believe only clutters the library if you are not looking to search Early English books in general; also, I do not know if they have the specific indexing as the collection I am creating. This brings up another point. The collection I am creating allows someone to search "Puritan-only" as a collection. While the Logos resource would make one go through the 25,000+ titles individually and create a personal puritan collection from them...and this would still leave out many potential titles because it does not incorporate EEBO 2. The collection I am creating creates a Puritan Index, without the excess books; in which a search can be performed specifically within Puritan authors, for keywords, phrases, scripture, or other authors. Thank you for your concern though.

.Hello Cab. That is a good question. I wouldnt try and compile them as one resource. In my program, I have compiled them as 100+ individual volumes, then put them into a single collection, thus making searching Puritan specific works possible. This is really the whole thrust of this project. That is to have in a single collection, all the Puritan works possible in "one area." So, for instance if I want to see what the Puritan thought on regeneration, I would open the search tool, choose "Search in" Puritan Ultimate Collection, then search. While someone mentioned earlier about Logos EEBO collection, this still would not allow you to isolate a complete search within "Puritan only" works without first going through the 25,000+ individual works and creating a personal collection from them. So yes, once you get the individual volumes in Logos, then uploaded, you should only have to convert them once; put them into a collection, then have a Puritan specific index. As you can see in the picture below; once all of the volumes are put into a single collection, searching is made easy. This is because each author has a unique tag; which makes it possible to isolate authors and search within them, while the collection as a whole has a unique tag "P" so one knows that the resource is a Puritan.

Here is also a screen shot of Puritan authors isolated within the collection. As you can see the author has been isolated via personal tag, then the keyword results are displayed in grey to the side of the work, which can be viewed in the work under the "article, search, annotation" button.

The "indexing" goes as following:  P=Puritan - TH1 (for instance) = Specific Author tag - 23 (for instance) = specific work from that author.

So if I had "P-TH1-23" it would be "Puritan-Thomas Hill-work 23." Thomas Hill is a name I just made up for demonstration, dont know if he is an actual Puritan.

As an owner of both the American and the English, I beg to differ. First, one can leave the resources you personally won't use in the cloud. Second, they are no longer all monographs. Those that I download include biography, collected work, lecture, letters, monograph, poetry, sermons ...It doesn't change your project, I'm simply correcting the record for those interested in the TCP resources.

Apologies if I unintentionally misconstrued the resource. I was only going by user reviews on the resource listing on Logos' website. For instance this review:
"Best buy on Logos yet! Using it for my PhD research for Union School of Theology and it has been extremely helpful. The fact that you cannot search within the document can be alleviated by simply copying and pasting the document you select into a Word document and then searching it from there (just remember to include all the possible spellings). I have been introduced to some of the most cogent Biblical thinkers I have ever read. The amount of material one gets for the price makes this a steal! I also recommend the Library of Early American History collection."

This would be another difference between the collection I am creating and the collection Logos offers. The works in my collection are fully searchable within Logos without having to do all the preliminary work outside of Logos.

The fact that you cannot search within the document

This has never been true -- I have no idea what the reviewer had tried but it had to be bizarre. The search requires adjustments for spelling, it tries to handle all word forms and Bible references. When something sound implausible, don't believe it.

My concern regarding your work was simply that it is not polite to offer free copies of what Faithlife offers (or is likely to offer).

This is based on false information - scratch it from your sales pitch.

My concern was simply that it is not polite to offer what Faithlife already offers - I didn't know how much overlap there was because it is not an area of my interest.

Again, thank you for your concern. But with all due respect I think you are not understanding something. Logos is not offering anything in particular. The EEBO 1 resource Logos offers has no special treatment to it. It has not been formatted, corrected, edited, or altered to make it any more usable within Logos than simply using EEBO itself; only that it can be used within Logos. They even say this on the resource page. Also, the TCP has done away with all restrictions using the texts. There is no exclusive rights between Logos and TCP. You have been bad-mouthing this resource, on both forums now (General/Files) since I posted it. I don't know if it is because it regards it being about Puritans, or because I doing this for free; but there is no need to. I am not breaking any Logos rule, nor copyright rule, nor delegitimizing any work from Logos. I am simply offering a resource, that I am making for myself, to the greater Logos community. Your subjective definitions of polite and rude have little credence here. There is no need for people to pay almost $1,000 for unformatted, untagged, unlinked public domain texts when a majority of the relevant texts are going to be missing (due to the absence of EEBO 2) and the Puritan works only being close to 5,000 works out of 60,331 potential. If there is any legitimate apprehension, please let me know, if not; you are under no obligation to utilize this free resource. Thank you, and have an awesome day.

Somehow we are talking past each other. I understood that your project was primarily EEO2 and therefore, probably not overlapping what Faithlife currently offers - a therefore of no interest to me.  As I have the Logos package, I really don't care what the product page says - I can look at the actual product. And the review on the search was flat out incorrect - something I can easily prove on the actual resources. Here my concern was simply your passing on false information.

I'm not sure what you think I am misunderstanding

It has to do with your whole attitude about something, according to your own words you are not even concerned about. Do you work for Logos? If not, why are you acting as if you are some official spokesperson for them? Regarding this "optional" resource, Logos doesnt "offer" it. The TCP, EEBO, is an open-source, public domain directory. Even if Logos offered a million EEBO books; unless they have isolated and packaged them in the same manner as I am doing, this is an original resource. Also, you act like your opinion is the end all and all others reviews and opinions can be disregarded if it is not shared by you. Again, do you work for Logos? Passing your scrutiny is not some sort of litmus test of a resources viability. You are being a borderline troll only trying to throw shade on something for no apparent reason. You are doing this in this forum, as you did in the general forum; and I am baffled as to why. How does this resource hurt you? You act like I am trying to make "selling points." I am not selling anything, only trying to share; freely. Please give it a rest. If you do not want to use the resource, do not; nobody is forcing you to. But unless I am doing something that is illegal, or goes against Personal Book creation guidelines, please keep your unfounded opinions to yourself. Thank you and have an awesome day.

No worries, it is safe and sound in my Google Drive, and I have no intent of removing it. The collection so far is only like 350-400 mb, so it is taking up very little space. Be sure to look out for new volumes as they come. Been taking a little break for a couple weeks; I pushed really hard for 4 months straight and produced 120 volumes. But I am going to get back to the grindstone soon and finish the collection, Lord Willing.

What's the estimated total there will be once you are done?   Just trying to get an idea of how many more there will be.

I really wish I could tell you. I have about 100 authors and 1,000 works to go; right now I am at 128 volumes. If I had to give an estimate: I would say between 150-175, but no more than 200. We have to remember that the goal of this collection is get the entirety of works available on EEBO; from all the Puritans available on that site. It is a process to compile this many volumes. I have been doing so as I go for the past 5 months; and it may have to be that way for others; that is, to do a little each day. But with that being said it is a unique resource; unfortunately, as of now there is no other way to get it into Logos. The good thing about it is a person should only have to do it once; because after the volumes are officially uploaded, they should download with any new install; and, further more once they have been compiled to your account; they should be able to be copied and backed up for easy install should anything occur. I will try to get this posted to Personal Book Wiki once it is finished, but I dont imagine Logos making it an official resource, though I would have no qualms if they did (as long as it was free.) Sorry there is no other way, but there are still quite a few volumes to come. On the list above, I just finished with Sperry; and I have all that is after left to do.
