It was not my intent to suggest that Perry should continue the work using Latex.

I was merely considering the most effective and efficient way to complete this undertaking, whoever elects to pick it up.

The original is written in English so an extensive knowledge of French isn't required.

At 616 pages (according to the Amazon listing), or 1567 pages ( according to the google books entry)  the task isn't perhaps quite as daunting as I originally thought. 

Even so it may take 1-2 years at 3 pages/day.
