Hyper-Concordance | List of E-text Archives


I have almost completed the digitization of all the works of Gaskell, Gissing, and the Brontë sisters. I hope their enthusiasts will be served by providing these e-texts on the Web. If there are any typos or punctuation errors in the e-texts (I'm afraid many still remain), please do not hesitate to let me know.

The following e-texts and their HTML documents are so devised that they can afford a proof of my own making. All rights are reserved. They are only for your private use. No part of them may be reproduced on the Internet or any other media without the permission of Mitsuharu Matsuoka.
