I was just looking at zelda_pinwheel's epub version of "Three Men in a Boat" which is beautifully illustrated. Would someone mind converting this to mobi and uploading it please? Zelda herself mentions that conversion via Calibre won't produce an accurate version.

Try it yourself - you will learn a lot this way. Like DaleDe explained in the other thread, it is possible, Amazon gave mobi a few new features in the meantime.

And please, try to avoid double postings and try to post in the right places. We have a request thread for mobi, the Calibre conversion part may be a good place too if you will have any problems while converting.

This isn't a double posting. I had no idea there was a request thread for mobi, sorry. I haven't read DaleDe's comment, so don't really know what you're referring to. I'm new to kindles, having only recently bought one. My previous posts were about the Sony 505.
Please direct me to the mobi thread.

About trying it myself. I tried converting an rtf into mobi and made a terrible hash of it.

The double-post remark referred to this post
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=117
you will find DaleDe's answer just beneath
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=118

The PRC/Mobi book request-thread is here:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11648

But I would advise you to ask in the Calibre Conversion subforum
(http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=235)
if someone could guide you step-by-step. Converting from epub to the new mobi format really isn't bitchwork. And you will be very proud of yourself if you accomplish it.

@Doubleshuffle --yes, "Life on the Mississippi" is coming up next. But first, I need to finish my "companion" to the collections I made ("In Brief," "At Length," "At Large," "Out Loud"). Since the collections are arranged by publication date, not alphabetically, they need some sort of associated index to indicate which pieces are located where. I am swimming in an ocean of bibliographies and spread-sheets, trying to work this one out.

Finished the epub of the Complete Works of Gertrude Stein with about 550 texts from 9400 pages in 46 books. Those who care—I doubt that there will be many—shouldn’t hold their breath, though, as they need to wait 976 days before it can be uploaded here on MR.

Where's Puddn'head?

I've begun working on an illustrated version of Mark Twain's "Puddn'head Wilson." I am stunned by the fact that I can only find one scan of the illustrated first edition, and that a sad one by google (their quality is not wonderful, with tiny crunched jpegs.)

I'm shocked, I tell you, SHOCKED!

I have googled around, and tried Hathi Trust pdfs (theirs is the same ol' google scan), and google images, and can't find a decent scan for illustrations at all.

If anyone has seen such a beast on their internet travels, please be kind and pass me the info.

Thanks.

If you go here and get the original jp2 files of the Google scan - is the picture quality still that bad?

I just downloaded that, and will investigate tonight. Thank you! My fingers and toes are all crossed.

Just downloaded that myself and had a look - the illustrations really look messed up. It's weird; the text and parts of each illustration are crisp and clear, but the larger portion of each image is quite blurry. Wonder how they managed that...

ETA: I guess you must have come across this. It's only jpg, but the images look a lot cleaner than the Google scan to my eyes.

Yes, I had used twain.lib as a source before, and I guess I will use them again. The googles make me goggle!

It is exceeding strange that a relatively recent book like this (1894) has no first edition scans at archive.org. Why is it so rare? Well, that will be incentive to try to make a reasonable version. I forsee many late many nights and double-vision.

Could you (or someone else) try to find a physical copy in some library or bookshop and scan the illustrations? It doesn't have to be a first edition, as long as the illustrations are the same.

Hi Jellby. ooo, that sounds so lovely. Yup, if I was in a big city, or had big-city contacts, that would be a great solution. Unfortunately, in a rural area in northern Japan, there is no possibility.

I get the impression from some various web sites, that this book only kept the original illustrations for printings in 1894-95. By 1899, the publisher commissioned new artwork.
