This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

Usage[edit]

This template may be used in Wiktionary entries to format English quotations from Edmund Spenser's The Shepheardes Calendar (1st ed., 1579; republished 1586). As the original 1579 edition of the work is not currently available online, the template creates a link to an online version of the 1586 edition at the Internet Archive.

Parameters[edit]

The template takes the following parameters:

  • |1= or |chapter= – the name of the chapter quoted from, which will usually be a month of the year, for example |chapter=January. In such cases a fuller chapter name will be automatically provided by the template. For other parts of the work (such as "The Generall Argument of the Whole Booke"), the template will display the chapter name provided.
  • |2= or |folio=, or |folios=mandatory in some cases: instead of page numbers, the pages of the work are numbered by folios. Indicate the folio number(s), and whether the rectos or versos of the folios are being quoted from, like this: |folio=41, recto, |folios=41, verso – 42, recto. This parameter must be specified for the template to link to the online version of the 1586 edition of the work at the Internet Archive.
  • |3= or |url=mandatory in some cases: because of the erratic page numbering of the work, the template is unable to automatically generate a link. Use this parameter to specify the URL of the webpage of the online version of the work to link to. This parameter must be specified for the link to appear.
  • |4= or |passage= – the passage to be quoted.
  • |format= – use |format=full to have the template display a full citation to the work.
