Welcome to the progress update for the period 16 to 22 June 2012, during which time further excellent progress has been made.

3,720 manuscripts have now been worked on, which is an increase of 57 on last week’s total. Of these, 3,480 (93%) are now complete, up 62 on this time last week. One box of material is now all but complete!

The more detailed state of progress is as follows:

  • Box 2: 331 manuscripts transcribed of 532 (62%)
  • Box 27: 305 of 350 (87%)
  • Box 35: 231 of 439 (52%)
  • Box 50: 58 of 92 (63%)
  • Box 51: 62 of 940 (6%)
  • Box 62: 52 of 565 (9%)
  • Box 70: 169 of 250 (48%)
  • Box 71: 607 of 665 (91%)
  • Box 72: 542 of 664 (81%)
  • Box 73: 149 of 50 (99%)
  • Box 79: 78 of 199 (39%)
  • Box 95: 53 of 147 (36%)
  • Box 96: 522 of 539 (96%)
  • Box 97: 25 of 288 (8%)
  • Box 100: 76 of 433 (17%)
  • Box 115: 245 of 307 (79%)
  • Box 116: 177 of 864 (20%)
  • Box 139: 38 of 38 (100%)
  • Overall: 49% of the 7,464 manuscripts uploaded to the website have been transcribed thus far.

Box 71 was the most heavily transcribed this week, and is closing in on completion. We are delighted to say that Box 73 is practically complete. There is only one more untranscribed manuscript to deal with, and four partially-transcribed manuscripts to finish off before we can close that box for good!

Approximately 25,000 words were transcribed this week, and thank you, as ever, to all those who have given their time and effort to Transcribe Bentham during the last seven days. It remains greatly appreciated.
