Can anyone offer a translation (English, Gernan or French) of the novel 'The Leopard' by Lampedusa? There is already the Italian original on Mobileread, but unfortately I don't speak Italian.

I just noticed that it won't be possible because of the year it was published. The work had to have been instantly translated after being published and the translator had to have died within the following year. Otherwise it would not be free of copyright.
