    • Abstract:
      The article provides an overview of the history of the Scholarly Digital Editions, a small academic publisher focused on producing electronic versions of scholarly books. Topics considered include the sale of electronic texts on CD-ROMs, the advent of the World Wide Web, and the author's work on the Canterbury Tales Project, scholarly research which started with the Hengwrt manuscript held at the National Library of Wales of Geoffrey Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales." Scholarly Digital Editions was founded in 2000 to publish the findings of the Canterbury Tales Project and similar scholarly works.
    • Abstract:
      La brève histoire des livres en sciences humaines sur support électronique a d'abord débuté par des publications sur CD-ROM lancées par quelques éditeurs commerciaux avant de passer par des publications à compte d'auteur diffusées par des chercheurs sur le web ou par le truchement de centres d'humanités numériques. On relate l'expérience d'un petit éditeur spécialisé dans l'édition de livres électroniques en sciences humaines. On fournit des tableaux représentant des ventes de CD-ROM, DVD-ROM et sur Internet en vue de démontrer que la compagnie ne peut suivre un modèle commercial régulier dans le cadre de ses activités. D'autres considérations justifient cependant le travail de la compagnie et l'article prévoit qu'elle pourra continuer d'exister en offrant à un large public certaines de ses publications en ligne gratuitement tandis que d'autres portant sur des recherches plus pointues et réservés aux spécialistes seront accessibles moyennant finances.
