Orated Odyssey

For a birthday present my grandmother bought me an audiobook of The Odyssey, translated by George Herbert Palmer in 1900 and read by Norman Dietz in 1989.

I would be fun to have a copy of Palmer's translation on my PDA so at times I could read along. But I cannot find one online.

Project Gutenberg has four translations, by Samuel Butler, Samuel Butcher and Andrew Lang, Alexander Pope, and William Cowper. Of these the first is closest, but of course not close enough to use for reading along.
