That's right - a translation has its own copyright, entirely independent of that of the original, so Anthea Bell's translation will be in copyright until 70 years after her death.
If you're reading german, we could upload the german version without a problem.

Thanks Patricia, but I think that's overpriced for an ebook. I might try to buy a cheaper copy from Amazon.

Me again! If "A Writer's Diary" by Virginia Woolf is PD, I would be very grateful if someone would upload this. I've been looking for it everywhere, but can't find it on any free sites. Does this mean that the editing or something is in copyright?

The diaries were edited after Woolf's death and published between 1977 and 1984 in twelve volumes. These now have their own copyright. So I'm afraid that we can't upload them.

Thanks for the info Patricia. Will probably purchase the pback. I read this from the library. It's composed of extracts from her diaries; the extracts relate to her life as a writer.

Chernyshevsky's 'What is to be done?'

I'm looking for an English translation of Chernyshevsky's Что делать (What is to be Done?). I've found PDF scans through Internet Archive and Google Books, but I'm hoping to find a clean text before I attempt OCR.

This is quite an important book. Dostoevsky's Notes from (the) Underground is perhaps the most famous response. I'm surprised that I could not find it in Project Gutenberg...

Thanks in advance!

According to the wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_Is...Done%3F_(novel) it was not translated into English until 1973 which means it is still under copyright. Translations get a new copyright by the translator.

You might look at http://www.archive.org/details/whatstobedonerom00cher which claims an earlier translation. Perhaps you can use it.

If it's PD (he died in 1939), I would be very grateful if someone could upload "It was the nightingale" by Ford Madox Ford. Thanks.

Yes, everything by Ford Madox Ford is in PD. I am, however, not aware of a scan of this particular work.

The Wikipedia date is wrong.

The Dole and Skidelsky translation was published in 1886 by Thomas Y. Crowell & Co. and is most definitely in the public domain.

There is a PDF scan on Google Books, but the quality is not so good, making OCR a challenge...

I guess Kena was asking if there is an ebook version. To find that out, use inkmesh.com and do a search there. It seems not to be available in digital form yet.
