I received a PDF of Burachkov's Catalogue of Coins of the Greek Colonies on the Coast of S. Russia, &c. (1884) today from a Ukranian visitor to my web site. It's in Russian. I wanted it for the 32 plates of line drawings, several of which were cited in Historia Numorum.
My intention is to extract the plates from the PDF and place them as navigable .JPGs on the web site, linking the citiations in Historia Numorum to the correct plate in Burachkov.
The PDF is large — 124 MB — so I can't place the whole book on the site. If anyone wants to take a crack at OCRing this Russian-language title, or just wants a PDF to read, let me know and I'll mail you a CD-ROM.
