Eliot, Charles W. (editor): Harvard Classics 29: Darwin, Voyage of the Beagle. v1

Back to the Harvard Classics for you culture vultures.

For the first time in this series I am happy with the cover. In prior versions the white space around the cover was clipped too close.

This volume is the story of the voyage Darwin made when he gathered the material for Origin of the Species (available at MobileRead in Harvard Classics Volume XI.)

The following from the Preface to the book explains the intent of the book.

Quote:
This volume contains, in the form of a Journal, a history of our voyage, and a sketch of those observations in Natural History and Geology, which I think will possess some interest for the general reader. I have in this edition largely condensed and corrected some parts, and have added a little to others, in order to render the volume more fitted for popular reading; but I trust that naturalists will remember, that they must refer for details to the larger publications which comprise the scientific results of the Expedition.

I'm always thrilled to see a Harvard Classics volume pop out!! Wonderful! At this rate it won't be long til they're all ready. Wonder how we will celebrate?!!

If you don't do it, I'll throw a brick at you! (How's that for a demand?!)

But seriously, maybe after completing the series, people will be clamoring for .rtf (or .html) and .pdb versions. That would open up these great books to people with any kind of device.

I can't believe that only Sony Reader owners want to read this amazing collection of classics. And my theory is that most people who aren't interested in the Harvard Classics just haven't read enough to get hooked!

You read too much Krazy Kat

You've got a deal. Two positive votes for additional formats. (I assume that was a positive vote from Duke.)

Well, see, that's more of a threat, really ....

Of course, it might be hard to actually hit him with a brick all the way over in Virginia. Maybe a half-brick ....

Hmmm. Yes, an interesting notion that. But it wouldn't really be throwing -- I know, they say you can put anything in a 'podcast,' and a 'cast' is kind of a 'throw,' so he could put a brick in a podcast and e-mail you that!

What tools exist for the iLiad that convert HTML into something useful to read? I have HTML for one book and the BD HTML0 for the others I've posted here. So I could just load the Book designer files and save as PDB.

The cover

Yes, these are always good to have. A complete set would be very welcome.

You mentioned being satisfied (finally) with the cover. I was wondering if you're going to go back and redo the earlier covers?

Thanks,
Don

The advantage of BD is that, once you've done all the work of getting the book looking nice in BD, it's trivial to generate whatever book format you want from it.
