A Journey in Khorassan and Central Asia[edit]

I hope I did not intrude when I transcluded A Journey in Khorassan and Central Asia. I proofread the last page, so it seemed the right thing to do at the time. I mention this as I have also now added it to New Texts on the main page, which I forgot to do at the time. Although I think you are already aware, I should probably mention that I created a category on Commons for the book scan and the images I derived from it (the map and both signatures; derived from the PDF version because it is less compressed than the DjVu). Anyway, it is a nice book and thanks for adding it to Wikisource. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 02:35, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

British Library (Legislation Sources)[edit]


As you claim to be the Wikipedian in Residence at the BL, I was wondering if you were able to check if the BL holds a copy of the 'Chronological Table of The Statutes' issued variously from some time in Victoria's reign

Currently Wikisource has an 1877 version, but i;n attempting to transcribe the table I've noted a few damaged or pages with missing text. As the BL was at one time a 'deposit library' for the UK it should have a copy of the original.

Amongst other items sought are scans of

  • Statute Law Revision Act 1948, because this includes Short Titles for a number of measures

(and it's the Short title that is used as the 'Wikisource' title in most cases.)

  • Chronological Tables of The Statutes (of Public General Acts) later than 1877, - My local library sources for this give

a version upto 1962 although a version updated to 2010 is supposed to exist. The reason for requesting this is also in determining short titles and in noting repeals.

  • Repealed Legislation passed prior to 1991. Wikisource has an edition of Ruffhead(which would help fill in the gaps in respect of early statutes), but this runs only as far as 9 Geo3,

From some very quick scanning on, it appears that there was a series of 'Public General Statutes' documents published during the reigns of Victoria and Edward VII, which would help in tracking down the short titles . (The UK SLD site does not hold legislation that became spent or was repealed before 1991)
