Happy new year everyone. I’ve spent the last few days at a very nice house-party in Derbyshire, complete with evening dress dinners — no, it wasn’t at Pemberley!
So, quite naturally, I haven’t done very much on any of my projects.
However I did receive 10 pages of Arabic in a Word document: the opening section of al-Makin’s history, transcribed from the 1625 Erpenius edition. This looked very good indeed! But of course I haven’t really had a chance to look at it.
Nor have I had the chance to do any real proof-reading of the Origen volume. A copy of the proof has been sent to a gentleman to proof-read, however.
At this time of year in England it is dark, rainy and depressing. It’s rarely possible to get much done in the winter holidays. The best thing to do is to do as I did, and go away!
