Annotations[edit]

This appears to be an annotated version (ie. additional new markups have been added that were not in the original version: wikilinks, etc..) - please see Wikisource:Annotations, be sure to have a parallel plain-text version available. -- Stbalbach 23:32, 1 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Non-annotated versions are available at the two links listed under "source" - does that not count, or does the plain version have to be here at Wikisource? --Nicknack009 07:35, 2 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Plain text version, reproducing Giles complete with chapter headings and footnotes, added. --Nicknack009 22:27, 15 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, yeah the plain text has to be here at wikipedia. -- Stbalbach 13:25, 20 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Let's keep on eye on...[edit]

Griscom's edition (1929 I think, reprinted in the 70s), which should be in the public domain by now, or so I imagine. Cavila (talk) 06:47, 19 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]
