I have a translation of Joourney to C of Earth xlated by Robert Baldick,
pub by Penguin 1965 and reprinted several times. I do not know if it is now
in print. It seems to be a fairly accurate translation, at least the
Profesor's name is correct and pages of the MS have not been left out. It
would be nice to know which of the public domain translations were passably
correct (if any) and which of the newer ones were re-translations and are
"adequate", and which ones are currently available in print. I realize some
of this may be in the JV Encyclopedia in some form.
