"Around the World in Eighty Days" published in Cornish

Evertype announces the publication of a translation, abridged for  
learners and younger readers, into the Cornish language of "Around the  
World in Eighty Days" by Jules Verne. The book has been translated  
into many languages. The translator, The translator, Kaspar Hocking,  
was born in January 1913 in London, where his father worked in the  
Admiralty, after leaving Falmouth for work at the beginning of the  
twentieth century. Kaspar studied biology at Imperial College in  
London and worked for 30 years as an entomologist in East Africa  
(Tanganyika, Uganda, and Kenya), retiring in Polwheveral in 1969. He  
has taken in interest in the Cornish language since 1989, when his  
daughter, Vanessa Beeman, persuaded him to classes with her to learn  
the language. Both Kaspar and Vanessa were made Bards of the Cornish  
Gorseth in 1993, with Vanessa eventually becoming Deputy Grand Bard in  
2003 and Grand Bard in 2006. Kaspar has also been involved with the  
Cornwall Wildlife Trust both as Chairman of the Council, then  
President. He was also Chairman of Agan Tavas from 1996 to 1998.

This book is written in the spelling called Kernowek Standard. It is  
very close to the orthography of the new Standard Written Form, the  
consensual spelling for use in public life and schools, except that  
some small errors in the Standard Written Form have been amended in  
this spelling, and diacritical marks are also used to show the  
differences between homonyms or to indicate vowels which are  
pronounced in different ways. Anyone who can read the Standard Written  
Form will be able to read this version without any difficulty.

This new book contains more than 30 of the famous illustrations of  
Alphonse-Marie de Neuville ha Léon Benett, which first appeared in the  
original French edition in 1873. The book was typeset and published by  
Evertype of Co. Mayo, Ireland.

Copies may be obtained from Amazon.co.uk, from Amazon.com, or from
