Post Swift, Jonathan: Gulliver's Travels. v5 10 Nov 2013

This is the famous four-part satirical novel by Jonathan Swift, published anonymously in 1726 as "Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World", and later revised in 1735. The novel is ostensibly the story of Lemuel Gulliver, a surgeon and sea captain who visits remote regions of the world. In his four voyages, Gulliver finds strange people and societies through whose flaws and virtues the author intelligently criticizes the uses and vices of the European society of his time.

The text comes from Project Gutenberg, a missing passage from Chapter III, Part III has been added, and it has been proofread, corrected and formatted. For those wanting to read this in a web browser, I include an index.zip file: just unzip this and the .epub file in the same directory, and open index.html (and modify index.css if you like).

Any kind of feedback is welcome.

EDIT (v2): Fixed the publication date (not 1973, but 1735!)

EDIT (v3): Updated to support the epub2pdf script.

EDIT (v4): Fixed a few typos and problems.

EDIT (v5): Updated Prince style, logo and cover.

Following the discussion in this thread, I've decided to update the Prince style in this book to use "olde" typesetting. Try with with the IGM FELL English PRO font! (with this tool)
