So does any one know roughly what it is saying? Is there anything of particular interest in there?

Cheers,
Dan.

It's an entire book about Fiore and his times. So yes, it is all useful and says a lot of things. It was Zanutto who found the referrence to Fiore being put in charge of artillery at Udine.

cool. I suppose it is too much to ask if any one translated it?

It is a very long book, nobody had translated it yet (and honestly I doubt that they will).

I've just download this and I can see that nobody has translated this yet. However I could run the PDF through a OCR product and put it into a digital format, from my understanding it in modern Italian, (I'm not great with languages) I can then run it through a modern translator? I can't say how accurate the end result will be but would anyone find this useful?

It might be a very worthwhile thing to do - it may result in gibberish, but it's worth a try. :)

I've found a reasonable OCR program, might have go through and manually spell check it after the fact. I did a page as a test run and it made sense when I ran it through google translate. So this might be a viable option, I'll continue to look at OCR programs tonight, see if I can't find something more accurate. If I can at least convert it it might give someone with more language skills a better and easier chance of translating it accurately. :D

ABBYY Finereader is the best OCR program I've found.
