As part of the preliminary work for his edition of the poems, Ralph Franklin brought out in 1981 a facsimile edition of Dickinson’s hand-sewn albums, or ‘fascicles’ (as Mabel Todd called them), entitled The Manuscript Books of Emily Dickinson.
In 1858, [Dickinson] began to copy out her verse and sew it carefully into fascicles, unknown to anyone until after her death in 1886.
The fascicle of light that [the projector] emits has a perfect concentration.
‘Fascicle’ comes from the Latin ‘fascis,’ bundle.
