 +Transcription of Book 1 of the Daniel Browne edition is now complete, and we are in the process of adding the remaining five books, with cross-references of each book against the Latin text. If you are available to assist (as simple as typing the text from the PDF into an email) please [[cassius@epicureanfriends.com|email]] or [[http://​www.epicureanfriends.com/​index.php?​thread/​455-versions-of-the-text-of-lucretius-1743-daniel-browne-edition-unknown-translator/&​postID=1224#​post1224|check in here]]. At present (06/27/18) transcription of book one is now complete, with books two through six remaining to be done. The text of the Browne translation needs to be typed into books two through six, and then line equivalent line numbers added to the Munro and Bailey versions which are already transcribed.
