Important Dates in the development of the English Language
All dates are CE (Common Era).
Old English (or Anglo-Saxon), 5th to 1066, e.g. Beowulf
Bede 673-735, wrote in Latin, but works translated into Old English
• King Alfred, 849-899, translator
• Abbot Ælfric, 955-1020, translator
• 1066 Battle of Hastings, introduction of French
• Early Middle English, 1200-1470; e.g. Chaucer
• Late Middle English, 1470-1550
• Early Modern English, 1550 to present, e.g. Shakespeare

The Early English Text Society (EETS) first began to publish in 1864. The purpose was to put into print all early texts in the English language which had only been known through manuscript (handwritten) copies or very rare printed copies. This project was done in conjunction with the production of the Oxford English Dictionary.

This page lists the publications in the Early English Text Society series, with their numbers, proper titles and with some additional information that I thought was interesting or useful. The EETS is still publishing so new titles will be added as they come out. Abbreviations used are: OS = Original Series, and ES = Extra Series.

The list on this page has been made to provide a good, searchable database. For this reason, some of the eccentric spelling has been left as is, and some has been corrected in brackets to modern equivalents. The dates for the texts are approximate and relate to the composition or translation of the English version which is often centuries later than the date of composition of the original text.

EETS publications can now be ordered directly from the Early English Text Society. They have a list of EETS publications through 2015 on this pdf.
Boydell & Brewer is no longer carrying the EETS publications.

This page was originally published at pierce.yolasite.com/eets but Yola was hacked on Nov. 22, 2011, and they could never fix their servers. While their servers have been crashing, I have been studying the texts in this collection and have found some excellent sources for information about Anglo-Saxon Paganism which other scholars do not seem to have noticed.
