Fantastic work. Thanks for all your efforts.
Yonge's translation of The Works of Philo
Happy New Year!
I've recently finished a preliminary edition of Yonge's translation of the Works of Philo for BibleWorks. The source files were obtained in good faith from Peter Kirby's website www.earlyjewishwritings.com/philo.html. This website claims that the texts are in public domain.
The text is available in a zipped folder for download at http://bibleworks.oldinthenew.org/philo.yonge.1.zip.
I will announce later revisions as I am able to provide them. Please note the readme.txt file for known issues with the current version. Instructions for installation are also briefly given in the readme.txt file.
