Multatuli's Walter Pieterse (Eng) on line

And at long last I got the conversion of

Walter Pieterse - A Story of Holland

to the format of my site also done.

In Dutch it is great literature, and the translator Hubert Evans seems to have done well.

The translation was first published in 1904 and was converted by people working for Project Gutenberg to html, in one file, under the following link

Walter Pieterse - A Story of Holland - Project Gutenberg

This is a fine edition, first published in September 2009, but it's all in one html-file (there are also other formats available if you follow the last link), that is 540 Kb. This may be convenient for some, but not for my site, so I have split it all up into the 33 chapters it consists of, plus some introductory files, that give Evans' introduction and the links to the chapters.

Incidentally, if you are interested in a scholarly edition, the one on Project Gutenberg is probably better than mine, because it contains a page record that I ripped out.

And if you are interested in my remarks to Walter Pieterse, more or less as I did them in Dutch in my edition of the Ideen, of which it is a part, you'll have to have some patience.

Indeed I may not make them, having also other things to do for the site, while having little health, but what I do intend to do is to link in the parts of the Ideen of the Dutch version of the Walter Pieterse story that belong to the chapters in the English edition, and I may also add some more about Multatuli and the content of Walter Pieterse by way of introduction.

Hubert Evans skipped some and translated some freely, but he seems to have done a fine job - and Multatuli's Dutch is very difficult to translate well.

Finally, another addition of a book by Multatuli, in Dutch


This got a little mislaid in that I put it on one of my sites in 2006, but not on the other, and also made a somewhat improved version in 2007, that I managed not to upload at all,

Now it has been uploaded to both sites in the latest version, which does not have my comments but is the full text, or at least the full text as published in one edition.

P.S. Corrections, if any are necessary, have to be made later.
