Summary:   Regarding query

Dear colleagues

Many thanks to those who replied to my query about the dates of manuscripts included in the dictionary of OE corpus.

Special thanks are due to Barbara Need, Tonya Kim Dewey, Matti Kilpio and Terttu Nevalainen for pointing out relevant volumes and for sharing tips and tricks.

Recommended volumes and websites related to Anglo Saxon manuscripts are:

Fulk, R.D. 1992. A History of Old English Meter.University of Pennsylvania Press.

Healey-Venezky, _A Microfiche Concordance to Old English. The List of Texts and Index of Editions_.

Ker, N.R. 1957. Catalogue of manuscripts containing Anglo-Saxon. Oxford:
Clarendon press.

The text information file of the York-Toronto-Helsinki parsed corpus of Old English contains elaborate information on manuscripts and uses Ker's dating system:

Best regards
Martine Taeymans
