Anyone know where to find a translated English copy? Been looking all over the place, can't seem to find one anywhere.

Man oh man are these ever scarce so I hope whoever buys them will scan and pdf them (I'm pretty sure the copyrights are expired) so they don't effectively disappear forever..

But here's some links:

Looked around for it tonight, nothing "readily" available as in free dlc but im considering buying it, even though the wikipedia article about it gives me the impression it hasnt really been translated fully or well. Any opinions?
Maybe its another case of "buy three different versions in english and fall asleep trying to read between the gaps and lines and perhaps dilute it all into a idiosyncratic summary wherein the 'point' is at best misplaced"?

Is that just me being overly skeptical and/or overeager? Descriptions of it paint it as a key to incredible and detailed information about roughly everything of interest and then some :)

Anyhow, im considering giving the italian sounding fellows version a shot.
