This was listed as a possible copyright violation in June 2006; the Discussion closed as keep, as Ross definitely translated the work in 1908, however I doesnt appear obvious that we have confirmed that we are only distributing the 1908 edition. However as the online resource that was used to populate Wikisource [2] makes no mention of the edition used, I raised this again but it hasnt been investigated. This OCLC:369755all editions appears to be the series we need to track down. In the Oxford libraries, the 1908 work is:
