That may be part of it, but I'm used to cleaning up .html inconsistencies, and as long as they are not overwhelming, I can usually get satisfactory results.

Have you tried downloading the LRF's and converting them to epubs nrapallo? Or did you start with the LRF files to begin with?
I originally downloaded all the .lrf ebooks and was going to use LRFTools to convert them to .epub, however, the first few conversions I did showed me that a lot of work was needed to get them working properly.

You've helped that cause by posting these .mobi ebook conversions, so I saw an opportunity to use those .mobi ebooks as the source for my .epub conversions. I'm already done converting them all to .epub and have started to tweak some to get a sense of the task at hand. After finishing one (I selected H.C.26, the late comer), I think I'll be able to fix the rest hopefully the same way.

The resulting .epub converted from mobi is attached and was created by using following ebook-convert command:
Code:
ebook-convert "H.C.26_Continental Drama - Harvard Classics.mobi" .epub --title "H.C.26_Continental Drama" --authors "Eliot, Charles W. (editor)" --publisher="Harvard Classics" --chapter "//h2" --no-default-epub-cover --remove-first-image --output-profile=sony
Here's the output of that conversion:
Code:

After using ePubFixer coupled with tweak_epub (set as Sigil editor ), I was able to produce a "fixed" version. I'll attach these samples to this post for a limited time and then delete them.
