These translations were originally done for a reading group of colleagues and graduates which has met since 1987. Each translation was drafted during the summer vacation, was worked through on a weekly basis by the group and then given its present form.
Tony Hughes has undertaken the task of putting the original photocopies of the seminars into a presentable form. Here is his description of where the work is at:
a) All seminars will be updated to improve readability and give a more professional finished product. This requires a very large number of adjustments, given the number of seminars involved.
b) The following seminars have the diagrams inserted: Seminars V, VI, VIII, IX, X, XII, XIII, XIV, XV, XVI, XVII, XVIII, XIX,XIXa XX, XXI, XXII, XXIII, XXIV.
d) As each of the seminars is completed it will be added to the website and the existing version will be removed.
e) We are also in the process of uploading Cormac’s original recordings and these will be added when they are available. Note that these were originally recorded for transcription purposes.
