By Tim Causer, on 1 January 2012

Welcome to the (again, slightly shorter than usual) progress update for the period 24 to 31 December 2011. 2,421 manuscripts have now been transcribed, up 38 on last week’s total – we are particularly grateful for these transcripts given that it’s the turn of the year. Speaking of which, since this time last year, some 1,500 manuscripts have been transcribed, a remarkable total.

The state of play for each box is as follows:

  • Box 2: 264 manuscripts transcribed of 532 (49%)
  • Box 27: 238 of 350 (68%)
  • Box 35: 226 of 439 (51%)
  • Box 50: 44 of 92 (47%)
  • Box 51: 44 of 940 (4%)
  • Box 62: 28 of 565 (4%)
  • Box 70: 164 of 250 (46%)
  • Box 71: 288 of 665 (43%)
  • Box 72: 152 of 664 (22%)
  • Box 73: 119 of 156 (76%)
  • Box 79: 71 of 199 (35%)
  • Box 95: 44 of 147 (30%)
  • Box 96: 455 of 539 (84%)
  • Box 97: 16 of 288 (5%)
  • Box 115: 230 of 307 (75%)
  • Box 139: 38 of 38 (100%)
  • Overall: 42% of the 5,580 manuscripts uploaded to the website have been transcribed thus far.

Thank you, once again, to all those who have given their time and effort in taking part during the last week and, indeed, during the last twelve months. Transcribe Bentham could not be successful without all of your efforts, and we are sincerely grateful. We would also like to wish everyone a very happy 2012!
