I'll do it willingly if I can just figure out how. I think that putting a Wikipedia article together with an eBook is necessary. Re-formatting Wikipedia articles to fit the different media is harder than formatting the books themselves, but including a scholarly take on these older books helps readers put them into a modern context: something that's necessary for people to understand their place in the culture. After all, the past really is "a foreign country" and all of the works that are out of copyright come to us from the past.
Thank you again for your help Dale.
In particular note the example text which is really just two links where people can find the original and the copyleft stuff.
