French to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary
French term or phrase:Book Request (Un Hiver a Majorque)
Hi fellow French to English translators.
Unusual request this one. I have been asked to translate George Sand's "Un Hiver a Majorque" by a publisher in Mallorca. Before I accept... or turn it down... I need to quit a huge shadow I can already see hanging over me. That shadow is being cast by the fact that Amazon reveals there is already a translation in existence by Robert Graves (who I admire greatly).
That translation is currently out of print. I found a second hand copy in the States, but it would take weeks to get here and the publishers want an answer asap.
So here is my question...
Have any of you out there got a copy to lend, or sell me, of Grave's translation?
I would need it urgently, so you would have to live somewhere in Europe. I can arrange to pay by bank transfer - either for your book or your P&P.
