Post Dickens, Charles: David Copperfield (Illustrated). v5. 4 Oct 2009

"David Copperfield", by Charles Dickens, with 38 original illustrations by "Phiz".

Synopsis from Amazon:

This is the novel Dickens regarded as his 'favourite child' and is considered his most autobiographical. As David recounts his experience from childhood to the discovery of his vocation as a successful novelist, Dickens draws openly and revealingly on his own life. Among the gloriously vivid cast of characters are Rosa Dartle, Dora, Steerforth, and the 'umble Uriah Heep, along with Mr Micawber, a portrait of Dickens's own father which evokes the mixture of love, nostalgia and guilt.

As well as adding the illustrations to the PG text, I've spent a great deal of time with this book, going through it and restoring the formatting to that of a printed version (the "Oxford Illustrated Dickens" version). The results are, I think, quite pleasing.

EDIT: 12 Dec 2007

Improved the formatted, restored dashes, etc. Uploaded v2.

EDIT: 24 Dec 2007

Converted words in capitals to italics, as appropriate, to match the printed version. Created a proper MobiPocket version with large images, working table of contents, etc. Uploaded v3.

EDIT: 16 Mar 08

Created a completely new version to solve a problem with incorrect paragraph breaks. Uploaded v4.

EDIT: 4 Oct 09

Thoroughly proof-read against the "Oxford Illustrated Dickens". Many hundreds of errors corrected - textual errors, incorrect paragraph breaks, missing italics and accents, etc. The book is now in a pretty good state. Uploaded v5.

Have tried to download this file twice using my very dependable (and still apparently well functioning) high-speed internet connection, and after 20 minutes or so each time the download ceases and I get a report that something's wrong with the "source" file. Is there something wrong here? I really don't think it's at my internet and computer end of things.

I don't use this format, but I downloaded in 8 seconds to my desktop. File came as 2.87MB complete.

I just tried it again this morning (12 hours later) after receiving your encouraging message -- and it downloaded in seemingly even fewer seconds than you experienced! Something of a mystery to me, but thanks for your trying it yourself and letting me know.

The site was undergoing a "denial of service" attack yesterday which made it very slow and unresponsive. That was the most likely reason for the problem.

An updated version (version 6) for those of you who like properly formatted Kindle chapter markers. :-)

Release notes - this version has two TOCs, one at the back of the book (which generates the chapter markers and linked to by the Kindle) and one at the beginning of the book. It would be an improvement to only have a single TOC, but the current versions of Calibre doesn't make this easy to do. If someone has time to follow this tip though, they would probably do the trick.

As it stands, this is still a very nice version for Kindle users though.
