Thanks to H-Hist-Bibl for sharing informaiton about this resource

Manicule is a standalone React/Redux web application for presenting unique printed books and manuscripts in digital facsimile. It allows editors to:

  • build guided tours through a book’s distinguishing features
  • annotate the edges of interesting pages with extra information;
  • categorize and color-code each page in the facsimile, giving a bird’s-eye view of a book’s main elements;
  •  visualize the book’s structure

Manicle can be downloaded from github.
