@Mathmitch7: I would prefer the earliest complete set but the 1809 is easy to read, and without long s' which would be more accessible. I’m interested in reading/proofreading if you are uploading. Cheers, Zoeannl (talk) 03:34, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

@Zoeannl: I completely forgot that I had compiled this list -- I'll try to upload this in the next few days and we can get cracking. I forget, if there is a missing page in the djvu file, is there an easy way to fix that after the fact, or should I take extra care to make sure I'm uploading legible and complete djvu files?

@Mathmitch7: Hi Mitch! On the rare occasions I have found that there has been a problem with missing pages it has always been fixed quickly on request at the Scriptorium. If it is a missing page, it puts out the count on the Index page which is easy to pick up and usually easiest to just start again with another scan.

@Zoeannl: I have now uploaded the 1809 edition to the Commons at File:Hume - Essays and Treatises on Several Subjects - 1809 - Vol. 1.djvu and File:Hume - Essays and Treatises on Several Subjects - 1809 - Vol. 2.djvu. Index pages incoming Mathmitch7 (talk) 14:02, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
