John? Munsell[edit]

Here you've transcribed "Joel Munsell" as "John Munsell". I'm sure it's an honest mistake, but you seem to have also uploaded the extracted images to Commons under "John". Am I missing something? BethNaught (talk) 18:09, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Nope, just a propagated typo. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 18:10, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. Do you know anyone in NASA PR to ask about getting better quality versions of the figures? (The ones in the PDF seem to be photocopies ehich have reproduced poorly :( ) ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 18:44, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

No I don't. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 11:57, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

Index:Rose 1810 Observations respecting the public expenditure and the influence of the Crown.djvu[edit]

Can you give this a second look, BEFORE I make it as ready for validation? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 19:54, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

@ShakespeareFan00: The tables are kind of all over the place, but I don't see any other major issues upon a quick perusal. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 23:06, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

A big project.. but thought I'd mention it in passing..Statutes of the Realm...[edit]

In trying to pin down a Misprint in something, I went looking for something called Statutes of the Realm:-;q1=Statutes%20of%20the%20Realm;a=srchls;lmt=ft;pn=2

And Hathi Trust has a 'few' volumes, ( albiet a 1963 reprint so I'm not sure about copyright issues on it.)

Assuming it's copyright Okay, Id really like to see someone put scans for the Statutes of the Ream up for transcribing, for much early English Statute law it's regraded as one of the DEFINITIVE sources (given it was complied by a specific official Comission in the UK at some point in the 18th centyrt IIRC.)

@ShakespeareFan00: It's published 1810-1825 so not copyright. The best scans I can find are here. These will be easy to retrieve for someone with a HathiTrust membership so I posted a request at WS:S#Statutes of the Realm. I can maybe help with the pagelisting after that and top-level nav, but I have enough backlog of works to proofread that I don't want to start another large project. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 11:55, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

The Canadian Soldiers' Song Book and contributors[edit]

Just thinking through how we may best capture an end copyright date with a compiled work and it is a little tricky. If we approach this from a Wikidata perspective, it would seem inappropriate to use contributed to work as they are not specifically "contributors" though their works are included. If there is a Wikidata version for each item, we could get a report run for death dates of authors of works. If here, we can track the authors, by either physically tagging each author as having works, or we can link their works through a template, ie. we can set up something like {{Canadian Soldiers' Song Book link}} (basing it on {{authority/link}}), and then have a listing of the author pages, and then work out how to pull death year from there. — billinghurst sDrewth 22:33, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: the best Wikidata approach I know of, is to have wikidata items for each subpage, with "published in" and "author" fields set. If we want to track authors with a template or something that is fine. However, I am satisfied with marking it as PD-1923 and leaving it at that; it's a lot to ask to track down the copyright of every included work otherwise. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 22:40, 1 July 2018 (UTC)


Remember that the Main Page listing is separate from the PotM template, and needs to be changed too. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:00, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
