This example was given by the University of Michigan Library. It is a very small work from the "Making of America" project. The example illustrates that the emphasis in "Level 1" texts is on the descriptive and administrative metadata contained in the <teiHeader> and conveying the textual object as a series of page images with loosely-encoded dirty OCR (usually not displayed) for searching.
