It's been a long hiatus, but I'm back again. Currently working on some of the Edith Nesbit books (author of The Railway Children, The Dragon Book, etc etc - very prolific).
I'm doing the children's books, the Bastable "Treasure Seekers" series.

Unfortunately, the third in the series "The New Treasure Seekers" is a rare bird indeed. I only found for free download the Gutenberg version and its countless clones, and a HTML transcription at upenn.edu site. No PDF found anywhere, so proofing will be only by personal judgment.

Well, I don't usually post here, because I start putting pressure on myself once I've announced something, but anyway...

I'm working on two projects at the moment, one is a collection of all I can lay hands on in digital form by AE (George William Russell), an Irishman of the late 19th and early 20th centuries who was involved with everything and everyone that was interesting in Irish politics and culture at the time (Celtic Revival, poetry, theosophy, politics, agricultural reform, Yeats, Joyce...). If anybody should run across anything by him that's not on one of the Gutenbergs or the Internet Archive, I'd be grateful for a heads-up.

With my other project I'm venturing into the world of illustrated books, inspired by (and also a bit intimidated while on the other hand shamelessly stealing code from) the amazing efforts of GrannyGrump. Joseph Jacobs issued a number of collections of fairy tales with fantastic illustrations by J.D. Batten. I'm working on the Celtic Fairy Tales at the moment, but things are going well, and I think I might follow them up with more later.

@doubleshuffle-- oh, you are entering the frustrating and fascinating world of illustration rehabilitation! It's a deep forest, full of strange discoveries. Very satisfying when you have the patience for it.

The Online Books Page is a University of Pennsylvania database, that gives links to available free downloads of public domain books.
Take a look at this link to see if HathiTrust has any G. W. Russell titles you need: http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu...%201867%2d1935

If you are geo-restricted from HathiTrust, let me know by pm, and I can help.

I second that. We really should get a wiki section on the topic. I never got further on that than this thread.
Since that posting, I've discovered the wonderful world of the G'MIC plugin for GIMP, which can make a lot of difference, especially for line drawings.

@Granny: Thanks for the kind words and offer. I'll PM you later today or tomorrow; in a bit of a hurry right now.

@SBT: Wow, that's a thread on images I've managed to miss so far. Thanks. I'll look into that G'MIC thingy.

G'MIC offers an overwhelming number of filters. Which ones are best suited for the rehabilitation of line drawings and what settings do you usually use?

Thought it was just as well to answer this in a new thread...

Me is "working" on Tim and Tip by James Otis

Using Text from PG (Harper's Young People weekly) and images from HaitiTrust (found I can't DL the PDF, but their webinterface allows me to save the pics)

Hathitrust is persnickety if you are not assosciated with a university or other "partner". You can download one page at a time (if you are not geo-restricted from that particular file). I download the page, and then use one of the online pdf services to extract the image from that saved one-page pdf file. I use pdfaid.com, and extract to PNG. Quality of images is usually a little larger and clearer to work with than using a screen-shot.

Luckily I wanted the pics only, and I used the right click in chrome to save. The pics are 10000% better than what I could find anywhere else.
