Webster, Jean: Daddy-Long-Legs. v2. 22 Feb 2011

This classic seems to be missing here.
Unfortunately, my version lacks the author illustrations - apparently unavailable.
The text comes from PG, corrected and formatted, thanks to Calibre and Sigil. Italics recovered, mostly, by a lazy trick with <span> labels - it might give problems for reconversion...

Uploading new version the right way ... many apologies for the mess.

New version added features:
* Illustrations by the author - thanks to you who posted the links!
* Improved layout.

You can find scans of various editions, which might have the illustrations you lack, here: http://www.archive.org/search.php?qu...iatype%3Atexts

Many thanks to DMcCunney and bookwormteacher for the links - v2 forthcoming!

Why didn't my search the Internet - Internet Archive by author plug-in pick them?
Suspect it needs reconfiguring...

Which plugin is that?

I assumed that if there were original author illos, there would be a scan somewhere containing them - Gutenberg works from source material - and the Internet Archive is a likely place to look.

I searched for the title, not the author, which may explain my success.

Plugin for Calibre - my own addition... asking for better configuration. 'Jean Webster' in Internet Archive gave me no results - although it worked for Mulford and others.
