I have copied John Grove's extensive list of labels and merged it with my own (much shorter) list. In the process, I provided full location codes for most of the labels. I also included his "titles" (short sentences, usually after text paragraphs; or multi-word captions on diagrams).
You can get the new list of labels as a pair of HTML pages, formatted for legibility, in either alphabetic or textual order.
The titles are in separate pages, likewise in alphabetic and textual order.
I also prepared a file with all the labels and titles in a more machine-readable format (90KB). Here is a small sample:
0797|zodiac|f73v|Z|1|V|okal|-|Z|day?|sagittarius, not in circle, #1, carpet? 0798|zodiac|f73v|Z|2|V|oteody|-|Z|day?|sagittarius, not in circle, #2 0799|zodiac|f73v|Z|3|V|oteody|-|Z|day?|sagittarius, not in circle, #3 0800|zodiac|f73v|Z|4|V|chody|-|Z|day?|sagittarius, not in circle, #4 0801|bio|f75r|L|1|V|sal.okeedy|-|B|nymph?|- 0802|bio|f75r|L|2|V|dally.ychey|-|B|nymph?|- 0803|bio|f75r|L|3|V|sols.daro|-|B|nymph?|-This file has 11 fields separated by "|"s:
- A 4-digit textual sequence number, increasing from first page to last page.
- The name of the section containing the label. May be "?".
- A folio-based page number.
- A location code, consisting of a letter and possibly a digit, which denotes a group of labels within that page. (Location codes beginning with X, Y, or Z denote unknown locations withing the page.)
- A label number within that group (or line number, for titles): a non-negative integer, sometimes 0, rarely followed by "a" or "b".
- A one-letter transcriber code, defined in a separate table.
- The label or title, in the EVA alphabet.
- The alternate spelling of the label, in Grove's extended EVA, or "-" if none.
- A label class, a single capital letter identifying the general class of object to which the label seems attached:
- A astronomical.
- B "biological".
- P plant-related (from "pharma" and "herbal" sections).
- Z "zodiacal".
- T from plain text (titles and labels on paragraphs).
- ? unclassified (e.g. the "rosette page")
- A more specific, one-word description of the label, e.g. "nymph", "planet", "star", etc. Often followed by "?".
- Miscellaneous comments, or "-" if none.
If you care, you can get my notebook with the unix recipe to generate the HTML pages from the machine-readable file, as well as the directory with the files and scripts mentioned therein.
