Ver. 5 11th September 2011
Updated numerous headings with a great looking font (Agatha). Nice find Jellby, I love it, and it looks very appropriate for Lovercraft.
After researching the use of "shew" instead of "show", I've changed to using "shew" where I have found evidence that that was the original spelling. This may lead to having a mix of the use of "shew" & "show" in the same volume, but if the original text is in a particular form, then I think these books of mine should reflect that.
I've also updated the declaration page with a version provided by Prestidigitweeze. It was much better than my existing one. I also used a modified version on my other volumes for consistancy.
I found some free-to-use fonts on a Lovecraft site for telegraph messages and newspaper heading and text that is supposed to be contemporary with the time-frame of his stories, so I've updated the telegraph messages and newpaper articles with these fonts.
Also found a large chunk missing from "The Call of Cthulhu" so have now added that as well.
