Post Dickens, Charles: The Pickwick Papers (Illustrated). v6. 16th Oct 2009

Undoubtedly, the adventures of benevolent Mr Pickwick, sensitive Mr Tupman, literary Mr Snodgrass and sportive Mr Winkle will continue to delight readers of all ages for a couple of hundreds of years more from now. Unlike the rest of Dickens's novels, this book is just the extremely enjoyable story of the four above-named gentlemen who decide to create a club of which Mr Pickwick is the main member. We follow them all around London, into the countryside and even inside a debtors' prison. On their way, they meet several memorable characters, including Mr Jingle, Job Trotter, Messrs Dodson and Fogg and even a couple of ladies two of them fall in love with. The novel has no main plot, resulting in a thoroughly enjoyable story that's read in a light, lively way. Moreover, "Pickwick Papers" is a wonderful insight into Victorian society, written in the way only Dickens can write.

Full illustrated with the original black and white illustrations by Seymour and Phiz.

This one was a real pain to do, by the way. It's full of songs, verses, letters, etc, all of which needed extensive re-formatting from the PG original. Took hours and hours to produce.

Enjoy!

EDIT: 24 Dec 07

Created a proper Mobipocket version with large images, working table of contents link, author name in library, etc. etc. Uploaded v3.

EDIT: 21 Mar 07

Recreated the book to sort out problems with paragraph endings. Improved the layout and formatting. Uploaded v4.

EDIT: 11 Dec 08

Thoroughly proofed against several different printed editions. Hundreds of minor corrections made as a result; the book is now in a pretty good state. Uploaded v5.

EDIT: 16 Oct 09

Replaced the cover to be consistent with the rest of the MR Dickens series; made internal changes to the HTML code to improve it (these have no visible impact for the reader). Uploaded v6.

thank you sooooooooooooooo much

i have never really had the chance to try ebooks. a few days ago i found a pocket pc in a pile of free stuff in front of someone's house. it is a jornada 540. an 8 year old piece that has a pretty impressive screen in spite of it's age. i have a mac and it is windows based. i have spent many hours trying to work around the obsolete software and proprietary file formats. i was actually reading pickwick in word. the only problem was word on pocket pc can only handle small files. i had to break it into chunks and i would often lose my spot. very frustrating. i almost gave up and i was going to buy a palm t3.

but then i found that i could put mobipocket on it. i did and then it was only a matter of taking my pg version of pickwick and making it for mobi. only i couldn't use mobi's program for conversion because i have a mac. just about every dickens book was available in the prc format except pickwick. i was about to give up and hate the world. . . then i found your conversion.

Thanks very much Harry - very good work. I wonder why PG is so very sloppy with works they must know that people will read with attention to the detail?

PG is just as good at the volunteers make it. If the person that first uploads the work is sloppy (or can't do better with the tools she has) and no one informs them of the possible errors there may be... well, they're never fixed. Even if someone sends a list of errors, they need some volunteer to check them (ideally against the same printed edition that was used originally, which may be unknown or unavailable) and to fix them in all versions.

And I wonder if you have thought for at least one minute how much work it takes to transfer an old paper book into its digital version, scanning, proof reading, ebook making... I have the greatest respect for all the work the volunteers on PG or here or on similar places do.
