It's amazing to me there haven't been more editions.

Don't be hard on yourself. In your shoes, I would be insufferable.
Hmmm. My assessment is that the people interested would more likely form a small, enthusiastic group. Faraday is under- appreciated around here in my opinion and there is also a lack of interest in reading anyone's original papers for some reason.
Since you're willing to make the effort to copy them, though, it would be a shame not to get them onto the web somewhere. There is
alot of interest at large in homopolar dynamos and Faraday.
What is the copyrite situation with these diaries? Any chance they're in the public domain?
That would be great. I'm looking forward to it. I had decided it must not be true before you came along.
My own interest is practical. I'm fascinated by how simple they are. I have a penchant for reducing things to the lowest possible level of complexity, labor, and expense, and maintenence. It's a kind of laziness, I guess.
