If I’m going to get the Selecta in Ezechielem of Origen translated from the Migne edition (PG13), I need to work out a price. I’ve already agreed a price per page of the Sources Chrétiennes text; how does this relate to a column of Migne?
It turns out that a full column of Migne is about twice the size of the same full page of an SC edition, which was a surprise. It shows just how much stuff the good Abbé was able to cram into his not inconsiderable volumes.
The Selecta are cols. 767-825 in PG13; but of course alternate columns are the Latin translation, so there’s only 29 columns of text. The online Google books edition of the PG13 is damaged at this point; several pages are unreadable, clearly because the copyist lifted the volume before the page was copied. Fortunately I have a better copy. I wonder how I can report the book and get the Google books errors fixed?
