Plates from Byzantinische Zeitschrift. Volume 36, Issue 1 (1936)[edit]

{{Resolved}} I've located a pdf copy of this periodical, [1], but the scans of the plates in it are illegible and useless. I'm looking for a good scan of plates II, III and IV - these are just after page 288 on the periodical, (page 299 on the pdf copy). It is for possible content for the Çandır Castle article. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 15:25, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

@Worldbruce: Could you help with this one? The pages might be available on De Gruyter --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:52, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Unfortunately, De Gruyter's scan of the plates is identical to the one the OP linked. Someone with access to an original may be able to produce a legible image with the right equipment and settings. --Worldbruce (talk) 19:17, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. That's a pity about the copy on the degruyter site. I had also found it though couldn't access more than the sample page - but I had hoped that it might have better scans. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 02:09, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
@Tiptoethrutheminefield: I should have access to a printed copy later this week. However it is "reprinted in N.Y. by Johnson 1964-68" and I can't predict how good the images will be. Watch this space. Zerotalk 10:43, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Will watch. Probably will be a Xerox-type reprint - but maybe the pages with photos will be printed better since they are all on separate plates in the original. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 14:21, 5 October 2016 (UTC)
@Tiptoethrutheminefield: The printed images are pretty crappy, but better than the PDF file. If you send me mail, I'll email them to you. Zerotalk 09:09, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for this, I've emailed you. They might be good enough to make it clearer what the text is talking about. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 14:43, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
I got them - the quality is actually better than I had expected. Thanks again Zero. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 21:27, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

Request to review article for Steve Whitney[edit]

{{resolved}} I am reviewing the sources at Steve Whitney, and would like somebody with Highbeam access to take a look at ("Carol Bodie inks ex-rep Whitney." Hollywood Reporter , August 3, 1999, by Geier, Thom) for me. The short preview isn't enough there for me to determine:

  1. Is this a press release, or press release rehash
  2. Is the coverage actually significant or simply an announcement of an executive hiring

Assistance would be appreciated. --Whpq (talk) 14:32, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

@Whpq: The full text (44 words) is almost exactly the same as the free preview. The ONLY difference is that where the preview has ... at the end, the full text has the closing quotation mark for the title "Girl, Interrupted." --Worldbruce (talk) 02:22, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

@Doc Taxon:, yeah I received it this time! Sorry for the belated response!! Seems for some odd reason this time, a part of your emails about this request were sent to my spam (including the first time you sent the page here in question), while the emails sent later, e.g. your "blanco" mail where you asked me whether I could still in fact even receive any emails from you, came into my regular inbox again; the place where I just obviously always received your emails, since "day 1" so to say. Pretty weird. Anyways, its totally fixed right now, and once again, thanks alot for the effort! :-) - LouisAragon (talk) 02:17, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Pages about Nicholas Eberstadt from Oxford University Press book[edit]


Hello. Can anyone please send me the pages about Nicholas Eberstadt from this book (Bynum, W. F.; Porter, Roy, eds. (2006). Oxford Dictionary of Scientific Quotations.

Copyright violation investigation assistance[edit]


Can someone who has access please take a look at Kenney, Dave (November 1, 2007). Twin Cities Picture Show: A Century of Moviegoing. Minnesota Historical Society Press. ISBN 9780873515955.  and compare its text about Minnessota's Terrace Theatre, with the text from the first revision of our article at Terrace Theatre (Minnesota) – which I have placed under investigation for potential copyright infringement. Please also check that book's copyright page to see if it's licensed in some free manner.

The issue is that the article cited this book as the source of certain content, even though that content is copied from a website the content of which is licensed under CC-By-SA 4.0. However, if the book is the source of the text, then the website claiming to license this content under CC-By-SA 4.0 has no authroity to do so, since the copyright was not owned by them in the first place.

Though I'm hoping for a general check, I think starting with the second paragraph in the history section that begins: "When the 1300 seat Terrace Theater opened in 1951, the spectacular venue was the most luxurious, comfortable and up-to-date theater in America" is a good bet sicne that pagraph was specifically cited to this book source. Thanks very much--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 15:58, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Fuhghettaboutit, the book is on Google books, and the required page appears to be included: [3] - page 117. As far as I can tell, the text seems well and truly paraphrased; although the content matches, no verbatim copies are evident. So I think we might be good here.

"Forbidden love: incest, generational conflict, and the erotics of power in Chinese BL fiction" and "Eroticism for the masses: Japanese manga comiss and their assimilation into the U.S." may provide a good help for this article and potentially for other related articles. Also, I would like to have access to the previous page to this one, if possible. Thanks in advance. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 23:01, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Birth certificate of William Edward de Winton (1856 or 1857 - 1922)[edit]

{{resolved}} Is anyone here who has access to birth certificates? I have following problem: The obituary in Ibis (1923) state that he was born in 1856 and that he was 65 years old when he died. The National Archives in Kew also state that he was born in 1856 (see here) However, the date on his gravestone shows 1857 for the year of his birth. Is there any way to get access to his certificate of birth? --Melly42 (talk) 19:04, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Hey Melanie. The 1871 England Census has his age listed as 14, with an estimated birth year of "abt 1857" , born: Laugharne, Carmarthenshire, Wales ; Father's name: Robert H De Winton. The 1911 census lists his occupation as a "Retired Scientific Writer On Zoology" aged 54, estimated birth year:"abt 1857 ". There is however a record of one William Edward De Winton of Carmarthen district in the county of Carmarthenshire in the England & Wales Civil Registration Birth Index of October 1856. It does not go into any more detail. - NQ (talk) 21:28, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you very much. William Lutley Sclater state 6 September 1856 in the Ibis obituary in 1923. So the entry in the England & Wales Civil Registration Birth Index might fit. Maybe De Winton's birth was registered in Oktober 1856. --Melly42 (talk) 21:38, 11 November 2016 (UTC)

Historical Dictionary of the Republic of Cameroon[edit]


Hello. I'm working on destubbing Thérèse Sita-Bella and there's a reference for:

  • DeLancey, Mark W., and Mark Dike DeLancey (2000): Historical Dictionary of the Republic of Cameroon (3rd ed.). Lanham, Maryland: The Scarecrow Press.

I checked the book, and I can't find her name. I also tried looking under her birth name Thérèse Bella Mbida,. No luck. Could someone check if she is indeed in this edition or any of the other editions? (I checked the 4th edition, and no luck either.) If she can't be found, I'll remove the reference. Thanks! --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:11, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

@MrLinkinPark333: She's in there. The fourth edition skips to "First School Leaving Certificate" after the section titled "Fertile Crescent" and omits the section "Film Industry" present in the previous editions. Major productions in this period included Tam-Tam à Paris by Therèse Sita-Bella, and Adventure en France and La Grand Case Bamiléké by Jean-Paul Ngassa.

The Times articles from 1973[edit]

Hi, I'd need the following articles from The Times to extend the reception section of An Imaginary Report on an American Rock Festival:

  • Lipsius, Frank: 27 Apr 1973 (an article about Hungarian puppet and youth theatre)
  • Mills, Bart: "Altamont or Montana" (presumably), 28 July 1973

(The two users with documented access seem to be inactive; @Mirv and Moswento:.) Thanks in advance. – Máté (talk) 18:23, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

@Máté: I paged through pdfs of the entire 36- and 24-page issues of The Times (London) for 27 April 1973 and 28 July 1973. They contain no such articles. Searching Gale's full text archive of the paper by various methods - author, title, subject, and the keys "Gábor Presser", "An Imaginary Report", and "American Rock Festival" - returned one result that might be helpful: Ungvary, Tamas; Almasi, Miklos; Szanto, Judit (18 December 1973). "Hungary Today: A Cultural Review". The Times. London. 
It contains about 700 words by Ungvary on An imaginary Report on an American Pop Festival, evidently at the Vígszínház theatre in Budapest. It mentions Altamont and Gabor Presser, and contains the tantalizing text: "That is, the stars were not right for the Vigszinhaz pop-festival. But as Times readers are aware as well, thanks to an accurate report by Frank Lipsius, the success was extraordinary". I don't know much about the format of The Times in the '70s. Might Lipsius (and Mills) have written in a weekly or monthly supplement that subscribers would have received, but wouldn't have been cataloged and indexed as The Times?
Email me if you would like a pdf of the 18 December 1973 article. --Worldbruce (talk) 04:46, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
@Worldbruce: Thank you for your effort! It got its English title only in the 1980s, so I don't know how they referred to it. The source for the existence of the two articles (in Hungarian): Lipsius p. 38, Mills. (E-mail sent.) – Máté (talk) 05:01, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: NewsBank and EBSCO both cover the Dallas Morning News for that date, but neither contains an article by that title on that date, nor does searching by Craig Flournoy or "White Metropolis" return a match for the review on any date. This archived version of the book's website contains a now-dead link to the review that suggests it may have appeared on the newspaper's entertainment website rather than in the actual newspaper, although only someone with access to a physical copy would be able to prove the negative. You might try asking Flournoy for a copy. --Worldbruce (talk) 22:54, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Help needed in accessing source from Taiwanese / Chinese website[edit]

As mentioned in the request directly above, I'm working on an article in my sandbox about an animated short film called Le Building. One of the filmmakers (Olivier Staphylas) was interviewed by Taiwanese magazine XFuns in issue #21, published December 2005. I've happened across what appears to be a legitimate Taiwanese or Chinese website, called airitibooks, offering a preview of this particular issue. [5] The magazine's text includes English, but unfortunately, the information on Le Building is on one of the final pages, and the website's preview ends on page 10. In order to access the rest of the issue, I'll need an account, and apparently accounts are only available through one of the libraries specified here. I don't have access to any of these libraries. I've checked the website's FAQ page, to see if there are any other options available to me. For some reason though, when I select the website's English-language option, it fails to translate the FAQ. Could somebody fluent in the language (Google Translate is only telling me that the website is written in "Chinese", so I'm afraid I can't say whether it's Mandarin or Cantonese) give me an overview of the relevant details? Is there any way to access the full issue, without belonging to one of the specified libraries? If not, is there anyone here with access to one of those libraries, who would be able to help me out? --Jpcase (talk) 17:29, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

Tell me off if that is a question too vague, but I could not find a better place. In Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor, there is a (redlink) reference to a 1241 edict of Salerno that separated the apothecary and physician professions. 1241 also includes the info.

Trouble is, all online sources I found are most likely taken from Wikipedia (either outright WPclones, or using a language suspiciously close to WP's), except maybe for this blog. So I am worried this may be a longstanding hoax supported by WP:CIRCULAR. Is there any biography of that HRE that mentions the edict? If so, we should source it. --TigraanClick here to contact me 13:17, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

@Tigraan: I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but it could possibly be that the year is 1231 and not 1241. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:18, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Senra, while I don't have access to the Parliamentary Papers, I note that there is no inconsistency between your two sources. The July 1903 announcement of the civil list was for pensions granted during the year ended March 31, 1903, which obviously would include most of 1902.

Locating specific High Court case records from prior to 1982[edit]

I am looking for any records of a court case at the High Court in London involving Chee Soo (Clifford Gibbs) who was sued by unknown plaintiffs associated with 'Macrobiotics' who were claiming that his Chang Ming diet was copied from them. The judge found in his favour. I need help from anyone familiar with the High Court in London most likely the Chancery division, and where records prior to 1982 are now located. Chee Soo reported in about 1982 that the records were with the High Court although he did not say the exact date. Considering Chee Soo published "The Tao of Long Life" in 1979 about the Chang Ming diet it is most likely from this period 1979-1982. One letter I have found in an archive at Exeter University mentions a court case to do with publishing awaiting a trial date in 1976, but this may be unrelated. I have tried various case law databases, asked solicitors and the Law Society to no avail. Chang Ming Chee Soo Lee style T'ai Chi Ch'uan --Chuangzu (talk) 20:05, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

@Chuangzu: By now any case papers will have been destroyed, so unless the case was reported in one of the Law Reports (and not many cases are) there probably won't be anything left. You could try writing to the Head Librarian, Library, Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London, WC2A 2LL to see if they have anything. Nthep (talk) 20:56, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Robert G. Brownlee Research Vessel Information Request[edit]

Item being requested:

  • Information from the Wikipedia:Miramar database about the Robert G. Brownlee specifications. It is an educational and research vessel used by the Marine Science Institute in Redwood City California. The information I was able to find solidly so far states that it was built for them by the Marco Shipyards in Seattle and completed in 1998 and is 90 feet long.

Thankyou! --Jeanjung212 (talk) 00:46, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Attention editors who have access to Miramar: Can you help? (AhechtApwoolrichFiendYTGbawdenLlammakeyRavenswingRsteenThewellman) --Worldbruce (talk) 16:12, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Checking it out now. Llammakey (talk) 16:17, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Does anyone have the IMO number? I can't find the vessel using searches for Robert or Brownlee on Miramar. Just checked the shipyard too and they have no vessels listed for 1988. Llammakey (talk) 16:21, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
The US-flagged 366-ton tug Delta Carey seems to be the only ship listed by Miramar as launched from Marco Seattle in 1998. Photographic comparison and timing of the Cosco Busan incident makes it seem unlikely this tug built for the Sacramento River delta trade is the educational research vessel. Delta Carey was Marco shipyard hull #478; and there are several Marco shipyard hull numbers unaccounted for in the Miramar database between #472 launched in 1995 and #482 launched in 1999. Thewellman (talk) 19:13, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
I found a source claiming that the hull number is 474[1] so if the Miramar database is missing that number it would make sense to be unable to find it. Although I am not sure if the source I found is one that is adequate enough to cite in the article itself. Jeanjung212 (talk) 20:27, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
@Jeanjung212: While the ship doesn't appear in Miramar, I was able to find it in the US Coast Guard database. Just go to and search for Robert G. Brownlee. According to that database, it does not have an IMO Number, has a call sign WCY4665, is hull number 474, was built in 1998, is 85.1 ft long, has a hull depth of 11.8 ft, a hull breadth of 30 ft, a gross tonnage of 89, and a net tonnage of 61. It's hailing port is Redwood City, CA, and it is owned by the Marine Science Institute. --Ahecht (TALK
