Shouldn't the translation be noted? John Kenney 06:26, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Stage Play

I know that there was a stage adaptation of this work in the public domain. Are there any plans to add that to this site in the near future?

As to the translator, It should be noted.

Regards,

Alas, the translator of this particular translation is Eleanor Hochman, who is seemingly still alive and translating/writing books.[1]. Sherurcij (talk) (λεμα σαβαχθανει) 08:10, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

OK... does that mean this is the 1894 Robson translation? -- Visviva 06:33, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
Yes, this 1922 Routledge edition has the same text and credits Robson: http://books.google.com/books?id=GFIPAAAAQAAJ --Grvsmth (talk) 01:28, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for verifying that! I have created Author:William Robson, but cant quickly find any birth/death dates for him. John Vandenberg (chat) 02:32, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

archive.org scansets[edit]

this edition (v2) looks very similar to the Gutenberg etext, however the introductory material is different. this edition is a bit earlier. this is a newer edition, and this appears to be a duplicate. this is a volume 2, for which there is no first edition.
