The article discusses the difference between a ‘notebook’-edition and an edition of ‘notebook- notations’ and presents the project ‘Genetic-critical and annotated hybrid-edition of Theodor Fontane’s notebooks’ as a ‘notebook’-edition. The edition of Fontane’s 67 notebooks is being realized by the Theodor Fontane Research Centre at the University of Gottingen in cooperation with the Gottingen State University Library. The genetic-critical hybrid edition will for the first time collect, transcribe, mark up, comment and publish all Fontane notebook writings. Whereas previous part-publications mainly followed content criteria, the conceptual focus of this edition is on the entire compass of the transmission in all its material and medial complexity. The notebook-edition consists of two complementary parts that by gradation visualize the materiality and enable document-oriented, chronological and teleological access, as well as establish readable and referenceable text and commentary: as an open-access digital edition, where every notebook entry is presented synoptically as a digital image and diplomatic transcription, as well as an historically-critically edited text with apparatus and commentary, and in the book edition, to be published with De Gruyter, which will consist of the historically-critically edited text version with apparatus and commentary. The philological working processes towards the edition are significantly supported by digital methods and the deployment of the TextGrid virtual research environment, whose services and tools are adapted and modified to meet the complex demands of the notebook edition.
