Samaniego, Félix M.: Fábulas en verso castellano. PDF 9x12cm. Spanish. v2 12 Oct 2012
"Fábulas en verso castellano para el uso del Real Seminario Vascongado" (Fables in Castillian verse for use of the Royal Basque Seminar) is a collection of fables (stories with moral, with animals and objects as characters) written in verse by Félix María Samaniego, a Spanish writer with this only work known. The fables were first published in 1781, and they are collected in 9 books. Most of the fables are translations and adaptations of works by other authors such as Aesop or La Fontaine. "El perro y el cocodrilo" (The Dog and the Crocodile) and "Las moscas" (The Flies) are two of the best known fables included here.
I created the PDF from the Cervantes Virtual Library text, with pdflatex. The book is nicely formatted and typeset, with table of contents, numbered lines, etc. It's also proofread. It has minimal margins, and 9pt font size ("-ss" stands for small screen), it may be too small for some people, but the source files are available on request if someone wants to try different settings.
I also added a "pagebar" to the top of every page, which marks the progress on the whole book and I hope is unobtrusive and helpful enough.
Any kind of feedback is welcome.
EDIT (v2): Fixed some punctuation and spelling.
