Yeah, I think I did. Dumas' lesser known works are so hard to find, so believe me, I'm pretty appreciative to find them at all. The last 20 years I've spent looking in 2nd hand bookstores trying to collect his books, but most are not easy to find, some were never even published in book format.

You can say that again! Though this book isn't as bad as the book I mentioned earlier that I have in paper form...the original used many accents on letters that didn't get recognised properly...since the text was english, not french. Horrible.

Thanks! I think I might have the french edition under a different name, as so often happened with Dumas, the french series breaks the books up differently than the english publications did...so sometimes it's hard to find the corresponding parts.
I'll download those volumes, just in case it's different than what I have though!

Look for this line:

and replace it with:

<meta content="cover" name="cover" />

and Calibre should show the correct cover.
Ok, thanks, good to know!

I still plan to finish cleaning up the file I have started, since I am "pre-reading" that book to some paper copies of other books I have in the series so that I can start using the paper ones as my new bath book
When its a different copy/translation, it can sometimes be hard to figure out where the books divide in a certain publication...

But it will be nice to have a full version of the series.
