This Is What The Internet Is For

While I’m on an eighteenth-century kick, here’s a link to the Encyclopédie of Diderot and d’Alembert Collaborative Translation Project, which is based at the University of Michigan. They’ve only posted a fraction of the 70,000 articles from the Encyclopédie, and it’ll probably be a work in progress for ever, but it’s a particularly worthy project.

D’Alembert’s Geneva and Diderot’s Natural Right, needless to say, are among the earliest posted translations.
