In progress: Orbis Sensualium Pictus

This board is a composition workshop, like a writers' workshop: post your work with questions about style or vocabulary, comment on other people's work, post composition challenges on some topic or form, or just dazzle us with your inventive use of galliambics.

In progress: Orbis Sensualium Pictus

Hey all, I have begun work on Comenius' Orbis Sensualium Pictus. The project goals and aims are similar to my Vestibulum project.

Here is the document so far. I'm through about 14 or so chapters. Feel free to provide any corrections, feedback, criticism, etc.

How does this differ from the Project Gutenberg version?

I'm using the Project Gutenberg as my base, but adding macrons, classicizing spelling (for the most part), and retranslating where the language is too archaic.
