Dear Art,
I have been reading your articles on English Verne translations in the March SFS and have found them to be most helpful and interesting. Your ratings of translations have already pointed me to the best available translations of some Verne novels. Such as Star of the South. Thanks.
I have a question about your section on translations of Journey to the Center of the Earth. I was curious as to why you rated Bradley's 1956 Ace papaerback translation as mediocre (no symbol). I had read this immediately following my reading of Butcher's translation for Oxford, and, except for a missing paragraph about Copenhagen near the beginning, I noticed no problems compared to Butcher's work. In fact, I actually preferred Bradley's prose style over Butcher's (who was very good as well). Did I miss something during my reading of these two texts?
Best regards,
Joe Muratore
