Is Anyone Interested in Sharing Costs for this Title?

Post by neilgodfrey »

The Septuagint South of Alexandria

It costs 139 euros for a digital copy. If anyone is interested in sharing costs do PM me. I could download it, combine it into a single PDF file with full OCR, and share it with anyone who has contributed a share. If one other person is interested that would mean we would each pay 69.5 euros. If three.... Don't all rush me at once. ;)

You don't explain the point of your comment, SG. Surely it is not questioning the copyright permissions of my request since I am talking about going 50-50, say, on an electronic version of the book. Would you like to share costs? ;-)

But if such sharing is indeed a breach of the law I will of course have to withdraw my offer.

I'd share the cost with you, but it's out of my price range.

A lot of the book is available (including my contribution to that volume) in Google Books at

Professor Johann Cook of Stellenbosch University, who invited me to contribute to this e-conference on the LXX, is the model of a true academic. Although he has reservations about my thesis, he considers it a new idea worthy of wider consideration and discussion in the scholarly community.

I would agree. Something good will come from it. I believe that.
