This ebook edition is readable enough but lacks book introductions, text notes, references or any supplemental material whatsoever.
In addition, the table of contents does not allow you to select a particular chapter, only the beginning of each book.
The (expensive as an ebook) Orthodox Study Bible, The Orthodox Study Bible published by Thomas Nelson, is based in part on the Septuagint but is not a complete new translation - relying heavily on Brenton and also on the New King James Old Testament. It's OK but not a substitute for a good new English translation of the Septuagint, IMHO. I have one of these as a leather-bound print Bible.
There is another supposedly "new" Septuagint translation from 2007 but this is also not complete. It uses the New Revised Standard Old Testament primarily, translating the Septuagint into English only where it differs from the NRSV text. I tried to link to this but can no longer find it on Amazon, either as an ebook or a print book.
I bought the Brenton translation ebook and I do use it along with the interlined Greek/English Septuagint ebook Interlinear Greek Old Testament Septuagint but I'd prefer to have an improved edition of Brenton with a better table of contents.
This copy of the Septuagint Bible was translated from Greek to English by Lancelot C. L. Brenton.
C. L. Brenton, "The earliest version of the Old Testament Scriptures which is extant, or of which we possess any certain knowledge, is the translation executed at Alexandria in the third century before the Christian era: this version has been so habitually known by the name of the SEPTUAGINT, that the attempt of some learned men in modern times to introduce the designation of the Alexandrian version (as more correct) has been far from successful.
The history of the origin of this translation was embellished with various fables at so early a period, that it has been a work of patient critical research in later times to bring into plain light the facts which may be regarded as well authenticated."
