ὁ κόσμος ἐν εἰκόσι--Commenius' "The World in Pictures"

Postby njericks » Wed May 18, 2016 6:28 pm

I recently finished editing/revising/combining/rewriting/translating into English two old scanned copies of Commenius Orbis Pictus (the two documents are posted on letsreadgreek.com). Now it is in clean Greek type with an English translation. While I make no claims to perfection, I have fixed a great deal of errors which were in the original two documents and hopefully have generally produced a usable and useful result for vocabulary acquisition. The pdfs are posted over on sxole at: http://sxole.com/profiles/blog/list

Thank you. You may want to make a single pdf and upload it to archive.org. Is your work Creative Commons or something like that?

I hadn't initially thought of either of the points you raised.

Here is a link to the whole work on archive.org:

Yes, it is creative commons.

Very good! In case you should be interested, Phil transcribed Comenius' Janua Linguarum Reserata in an edition with a parallel Greek translation by Theodor Simon. Randy Gibson has a partial one too.

The link to download the pdf on Archive.org is broken. Do you still have the single pdf or a link to where I could get it?

I found a work around.

If you maximize the preview view and download using the download button from that view it seems to download...........weird.
