Where can I find an online version of Lorenzo Valla’s latin translation of The Histories by Herodotus?

I want to read Valla's Latin translation, not a translation into English.

  • Where have you looked already? – Steve Bird Apr 15 at 20:10
  • I've looked all over the internet with a variety of searches. I seem to be living in an English ghetto as far as online Latin is concerned. I know there are copies of Valla's translation at Yale, near me, but I would like to find this online so I can quickly search it. – peter hodges Apr 15 at 20:21

    Is this it? (I can't read Latin so...) – Steve Bird Apr 15 at 20:38
  • @SteveBird That looks like the right one to me (at least, it matches what the OP has asked for). Of course, how searchable it is depends on the quality of the OCR scanning, but that is an entirely different question. – sempaiscuba Apr 15 at 20:56

    Turns out it is searchable and I found exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much. – peter hodges Apr 15 at 21:41
