Images of Charles Monroe Sheldon

There seems to be photos available, though not sure of their copyright Image search. -- billinghurst (talk) 06:18, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Dutch novelist Louis Couperus

Wikisource only has one work by this Dutch novelist. Most of the available English translations are in the public domain; Couperus died in 1923 and his main translator, Alexander Teixeira de Mattos, died in 1921.Ingram (talk) 22:20, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Charles Darwin b.12 Feb 1809

I would like to see us work on Charles Darwin in time for the anniversary of his 200th birthday which is a couple of weeks away. I know that it is short notice, however, it could be a useful target with some publicity surely to take place on or around the day. -- billinghurst (talk) 05:33, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Schedule

Next: Author:Joseph McCabe Yes check.svg Done

Author:Jean Jaurès

Famous French politician, Jean Jaurès was born in 1859, so 2009 is his 150th birthday. So I proposed we should have this author sometimes this year, preferably September 2009. Yann (talk) 13:29, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Can I suggest that we use this as the next CotW, and the anniversary date was 3 Sep. -- billinghurst (talk) 12:10, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Author:Carl Linnaeus

It seems that the English Wikisource has none of his works in translation at all. --EncycloPetey (talk) 15:40, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Archive.org show these works about with these work by. -- billinghurst (talk) 05:04, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Next week?

Author:Dorothy Day or Author:Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din? Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Author:David Livingstone. 03:59, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

My vote goes to Author:Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din there are a ton of great works and they would make a great CotW. --Mattwj2002 (talk) 19:38, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Christopher Columbus

I don't know if you guys are interested in suggestions from people that don't participate here and have no intention of doing so, but I'm having great difficulty getting my head around the fact that Author:Christopher Columbus is a red-link [at least it was when I wrote this. Hesperian 00:19, 30 November 2009 (UTC)]. A Google Books search indicates several public domain translations of his journals / narratives / log; plus what has been written about him could fill a library. Though I'm tempted to create the page myself, I wouldn't do it justice. This warrants a collaborative effort. Hesperian 13:05, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Niccolò Machiavelli

I have been working on his page myself now for some time. But I could really need some help in adding more of his works. There is quite a lot of texts (and many interesting translations from different time periods) to be found online.--The Illusional Ministry (talk) 16:57, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Nice idea. Is there any time that is better than any other for this to run. billinghurst (talk) 23:23, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
As far as I know there are now jubilees or such coming up, so I don't think any time would be better then any other. --The Illusional Ministry (talk) 18:35, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
