More images from Mysterious German Manuscript






Won't some kind soul please translate Stefan Nagel's online illustrated manuscript "Schaubuden: Geschichte und Erscheinungsformen" for me? The images are so good, I am dying to know the context.

For more on Nagel's manuscript, see this recent post. View the images in context here. See more images from the document in the Morbid Anatomy Library.

Well, that's a lot of stuff to translate...

Does any chapter interest you in particular? Or would a rough summary of the whole thing be more useful? have you already thried to contact the autor for a translation / summary?

Hi there. I am most interested in the Panoptikont chapter. I have asked the author, but he did not feel that his knowledge of English was sufficient to the task.

Thanks!

If any translations are made, would you please post them? Ill hunt around for German speakers, as well.

I'm a fan of your site and would love to contribute to the translations. I'll keep an eye here to see if the document gets split up or so...
@schreiber - are you already tackling "panoptikont"? Need help?

JE said...

If anyone would translate even a portion of this for Morbid Anatomy I would love to post it on my blog. I have a little anatomical present (compliments of Kikkerland Design) for any translators as well. So please! Translate away!

Schreiber! How wonderful. I will post this tomorrow. If you send me your address (you can send it to my email: joanna@astropop.com) I will have an anatomical eye sent out to thank you for your trouble. Thank you again so much. I cannot wait to read it.
