Re: [Aroid-l] Translation of Engler's revision of Anthurium
Title: Translation of Engler's revision of Anthurium
Tom, if you can get me a copy I can get it scanned and the
OCR'd (Optical Character Recognition) and there should be no need to retype. I
could then put it in a word document for you. This would be a much faster
solution and that is my day job.
Dear Aroiders & Volunteers:
years ago I had a wonderfully dedicated volunteer named Elenor Sauer a Latin
scholar, who agreed to translate Engler's Revision of Anthurium in to
English. She worked on this for months and succeeded in getting most of it
completed but not to include Sections Semaeophyllium, Sect. Schizoplacium and
Sect. Dactylophyllium. We did not translate these sections because Mike Madison
had covered those groups in his 1978 revision in Selbyana. In addition we now
have a new revision of section Semaeophyllium which was just published (Croat
& Carlsen, 2007).
always intended to publish this translated version once it was complete but Mrs
Sauer was using some strange pre-word program and for some reason found that she
could not get this converted into any electronic copy that we could use.
In addition she has moved away then finally passed away so there is no way that
I could ever retrieve the copy. I have only one hard copy of this
manuscript in double-spaced copy. I would like to make it available to the
aroid community but would need volunteer help to get it retyped in Word.
It would be a big job for any one person but if I could get a group of persons
willing to take on bits of this we could merge the contributions, standardize
the formatting and then post it on the IAS web site.
of you who would consider volunteering to retype parts of this manuscript in a
word document please contact me. The existing pages number 430 and each
page has between 20 and 25 lines per page. The text is typed and easy to
read. There are a number of hard returns on most pages that could be
eliminated. Perhaps someone who is familiar with scanning might decide it
this is something that could be scanned successfully.
succeed in getting a small group of volunteers to work on this jointly the job
could be completed quickly and efficiently and I could then make it available
for the use of all interested parties.
