I didn't realise that these were out of copyright, but I've just checked the dates and you're absolutely right - they are!

I'd go for an omnibus edition. Has to be illustrated, of course - it's the pictures which "make" these books.

It's ready to go. Let me know if someone wants this. The only reason I'm hesitant is that I don't have PART TWO.

Please let me know, and I'll do it instantly.

Thanks,
Don
"Part 1" and "Part 2" are completely separate books - don't worry about it. "Part 1" is the book that everyone knows as "Pilgrim's Progress". Part 2 was written many years later, and is much less known - it's basically "more of the same", but for Pilgrim's wife and family rather than him.

Working on "Idylls of the King," by Tennyson

I'm 1/3 through it, but I decided to READ last night. (Fancy that, actually reading!!!)

What's slowing my progress - other than READING - is dividing the lines into the correct stanzas.

Oh, yes -- did I mention that I'm READING.

You see, I just discovered that I can READ the wonderful books that everyone's making available to us!

By the way - I've just posted the complete "Dr Thorndyke" short stories of R. Austin Freeman. This is an author I've only recently discovered, and I'm completely "hooked". Dr Thorndyke is a "forensic investigator", and one of the first "scientific" detectives, and he features in numerous novels and short stories. I'll do some collections of the novels over the next few days.

Freeman invented the "inverted" detective story, where the reader knows all the details of the crime from the beginning, and the story concerns the progress of the detective in piecing together the crime from the evidence (yes, exactly the "Columbo"!). Not all his books are of this type, but those that are are a refreshing change from the conventional "whodunnit".

It's so fantastic to come across a new author who "hooks" you, and Freeman was extremely prolific. Lots of great stuff to come!

I've now posted all the currently available "Dr Thorndyke" books of R. Austin Freeman - a "complete short stories" collection, and 14 novels, split into 4 "omnibus" volumes. The sharp-eyed, looking at PG, might notice that there are a few books I've not included - these are short story collections, and all are included in the short story omnibus.

Freeman wrote many more books featuring Dr. Thorndyke - if and when more appear on PG, I'll do them for the Reader.

Dr Thorndyke is a wonderful read. Do give these a go if you enjoy detective stories!

H.G. Wells - War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells is my next book I am working on. I'm almost done. You might find a neat trick in this as far as the footers go.

Intent to post John Woolman's Journal

It is a wonderful work that I started to format earlier today as part of the Harvard Classic series; but, I started to read the book, and read, and read, and finish. All I can say is "WOW"

However I must ask you indulgence as I seem to have a problem in BD that I don't know how to get around and will have to delete and reload the program. For some reason it has started to ignore all chapter titles other than the first and the last. It also ignores page breaks both automatic at chapter starts and user inserted. No entries are present in the TOC for these ignored items. This was plain to see on Franklin's Autobiography and I don't want to post another book with the same problems. Yes, I have tried all that I know about to set the options and configurations.

Thank you for your understanding.

The next book I am going to be working on is Doctor Dolittle's Garden with illustrations. I don't have the author's name handy at the moment. But I'll have it done before we leave for Florida on Thursday morning for 5 days.

Vathek v2 has better cover page and a CONTENTS page...

even though the CONTENTS page has only two hyperlinks.

This is finished; it's a great read if you like oriental-styled tales like the Arabian Nights.

Hey!!!! What an idea, Harry, THE ARABIAN NIGHTS!!! -- I'm glad I thought of it...HAVEN'T YOU FINISHED THIS ONE YET??!!!

Anyway, VATHEK is a wonderful novel and "oriental-ness," if you know what I mean.
