It looks like there are some typos:

  • VIII, "supplied light With vast effectiveness": presumably "with"
  • VIII, "The saunan livestock were nearly all dead": presumably "saurian"
  • X, "Alter a short distance the masonry gave place to solid rock": presumably "After"
  • X, "Alter about quarter of a mile": presumably "After"
  • XI, "formed a large, spreading pOOl": presumably "pool"
  • XI, "Alter all, they were not evil": presumably "After"

I'm not changing those however, as I don't know whether they were in the original as well. 213.216.199.10 23:22, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

I don't know if the "saunan" error is from an original printing or if it was introduced when someone OCR'd this. (I've seen other online versions reproduce the same errors.) If it is an original printing error, I might recommend putting the alternative word/spelling/meaning in square brackets. Example: "saunan livestock" becomes "saunan [saurian] livestock". However, there does appear to be a Google Books version with corrected spelling [1]. --71.172.37.93 22:22, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
On second thought, ignore this. --71.172.37.93 03:21, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

I can not find where the discussion of the copyright violation was conducted/is being conducted. It is not in possible copyright violations or in the archive thereof. Ought this to be reverted or for the discussion be started?

Not sure if copyvio is warranted because of "early" 1963 renewal for what could have been made in 1964 just as well. Anyway here's the research so far... -- George Orwell III (talk) 04:31, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
