George Eliot [Marian Evans] (1819-1880) prepared this earliest English translation of the Ethics in 1854-56, but it remained unpublished after a dispute with the intended publisher, Bohn's Philosophical Library. The manuscript was acquired by the Beinecke Library at Yale University, where it was transcribed by Thomas Deegan (1939-2001) of St. Xavier College. His transcription was published in the Salzburg Studies in English Literature series, Universit├Ąt Salzburg, Austria, in 1981.
