Collins, Wilkie: The Law and the Lady. v3, 15 Dec 2007

Although not as well known as some of his other work, Wilkie Collins' "The Law and the Lady" is one of my favourite Victorian novels.
It's an early detective novel, with a gothic romance setting, featuring a newly married wife trying to unravel her husband's dark secret.
It has its weaknesses, but it's an easy read and features some of the most memorable characters in English Victorian literature - notably, the unforgettable Missmerimus Dexter.

I've tried to correct the errors in the current PG version (missing punctuation, unpaired brackets, the odd missing word), I'd be grateful if any further errors were reported - it deserves to be distributed in as good a shape as possible.

That's absolutely excellent, Sparrow. I only have one small suggestion - could you add a cover image? As you know, the CyBook Gen3 library primarily displays books by their cover images, and if a book doesn't have one it displays the title in such a way that it gets truncated.

If you can't find a "real" cover that you like, it's very easy to just create a JPEG image with the title and author's name on it, as I've done for most of the Mobi Dickens books I've uploaded.

I've put in a Cover image.
I hope it's ok, but I don't yet have my Cybook to check.
In MobiPocket Reader on my PC, it looks like a thumbnail - which I assume is what it should appear as.

Ok, I'm not familiar with that format. Book Designer is giving me three font options (Courier, Swiss and Dutch) - does it matter what font/size I choose?

Update:- I've gone ahead and posted a version to the Sony forum

Yes, I spotted your post about FedEx not having the package. What a pain .

It looks OK on the CyBook - it will create its library "thumbnail" from whatever size image you use as the cover. Was that the actual size of the image you used, or did it start out larger?

Yep, I can see your cover image in Mobireader, and it appears much larger than mine.

I've tried creating one on similar lines; but no matter how large I try making the original JPEG, it comes out much smaller than yours in MobiReader .

I can't see any options for it inside Book Designer, so I'm not sure how I can get the larger image as you seem to have done. I'm still experimenting, but if you have any pointers I'd be glad to hear them.

All I do is, when you click the "Palm" button in BD to make the book, there's a box that says "Drag your cover image onto this box". I do exactly that . I leave all the check boxes blank except the "Latin filenames" ones.

Delighted to see that your Gen3 is now en route, by the way!

Thanks for the reply, I'll keep trying.
My CyBook should arrive today, so I'll be able to see the results in real life
