The only authentic translation of Timaeus, digitally remastered

Almost 30 years after it was first published, the only authentic translation of Plato's Timaeus is now available in a digitally remastered version, along with the introduction by Lyndon LaRouche, who commissioned the translation. Fortunately, the PDF-image source files were run through a character-recognition program before they were put on-line, and fairly accurate text can be extracted a column at a time by pressing the ALT key and selecting the text in the usual manner. Then it's just a matter of copying, pasting to a word processor, reformatting it and cleaning it up.
