Annotated images of Stendhal's own copy of "La Chartreuse de Parme" are now available.


 The Chaper book, one of the author's own copys of "La Chartreuse de Parme" (published in 1839), has been digitized with the authorization of the Morgan Library & Museum, and is now available in the Kyushu University Collection.
The author, Stendhal, made numerous corrections, planning to the publication of the second edition. The copy is the most valuable resource for inspecting secrets of the author's creativity. However, it has remained extremely difficult for researchers to access it until now.
The high-resolution images of the publication that are available in our website are expected to greatly contribute to research activities in literature.
The annotations are transcribed by Nobuhiro Takaki, professor of Faculty of Humanities, Kyushu University.
