I took the liberty of cleaning the images in the same way as I did for Alex's "The Woman in White". Now the background is pure white, and the size of the images has been reduced to 2.7 MB. Feel free to use them, or not.
Personally, I like to mess around with mildly eccentric fonts and layouts. Especially for a work like this, which is widely available in other (free) epub editions, I think you should feel free to be as creative as you like in terms of layout.
Following on that, I am going to be wildly inconsistent and pick a few personal nits:
  • What about replacing -- with — ?
  • Having captions on illustrations with the caption in the actual image seems like an unecessary and redundant pleonasm.
  • I render text like in List.gif in an image as a last resort. Any particular reason why you've not rendered it as a table?
  • Lastly, I don't think it really works to have a border around illustrations like this, which have a white background and were borderless in the original.
Good work!
