Hosting here[edit]

Works hosted here on the English Wikisource should be in English. Works written in German would be hosted at the German Wikisource. --EncycloPetey (talk) 19:34, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

Robert Brown[edit]

This is the one I mentioned: The miscellaneous botanical works of Robert Brown. Sam Wilson 03:19, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, Sam. But we still do not have a text on the latin wikisource for Prodromus Novae Hollandeae. I can find a source on BHL but have no idea how to upload it and set up the individual pages for proofreading... MargaretRDonald (talk) 13:10, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
Do you have a link to the source you've got? I can upload it if you like. Sam Wilson 06:15, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
@Samwilson: Prodromus florae Novae Hollandiae et Insulae Van-Diemen, exhibens characteres plantarum That would be great. Thanks, Sam. MargaretRDonald (talk) 07:31, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
I've set up la:Liber:Prodromus_Novae_Hollandeae.djvu, but I'm not quite sure of the correct page numbering: is it correct that it starts on page 145? it does say it's Volume 1, but maybe something's gone wrong with the scans? Anyway, if the numbers are correct then it's read to start proofreading. Sam Wilson 07:49, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
@Samwilson: Thanks, Sam. MargaretRDonald (talk) 09:19, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Samwilson: And then there is this one: Prodromus florae Novae Hollandiae et Insulae Van-Diemen... (P.S. I have corrected but not formatted text for two pages of the earlier book. So your work has not been in vain.) Thanks, again. MargaretRDonald (talk) 10:22, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
