Does anyone know if there are well-formatted copies of the later books (the first two were tackled by Patricia Clark) anywhere?

If not, maybe I should be having a go at the Gutenberg Australia .txt versions myself.
I haven't ever seen Patricia Clark's versions of Proust in the MR library. If I had, I might not have searched avidly for other versions.
