Hah! Sometimes. But not in Google's text file of the book he would like to read. Here's the title page:
THE
E r 1 C U R E A X,
A TALE.
BY
THOMAS MOOKE.
ScconH ilSBition.
LONDON:
VRINTKI) KOK
LONGMAN, KKES, ORMK, BKOWN, AND GRKEN,

1827.
It gets decidely better after that.! I'm still looking for you Lobolover, but don't expect much.

The title page is a bit iffy because it's got flowery font - but the text of the Google version I perused looks ok; e.g.:

"CHAP. III.
To one, who extracted such sweets from
every moment on land, a sea-voyage, however
smooth and favourable, appeared the
least agreeable mode of losing time that
could be devised. Often did my imagination,
in passing some isle of those seas,
people it with fair forms and kind hearts,
to whom most willingly, if I might, would I
have paused to pay homage. But the wind
blew direct towards the land of Mystery;
and, still more, I heard a voice within me,
whispering for ever " On." "

If it comes from an OCR of a poorly done scan (which is what most of the Google books seem to be), then you probably don't want that dumped to a PDF - how about the trash can instead? You need a good copy.

I was referring to Lobolover's irritating "style" of typing. His keyboard obviously has a space bar and a shift key.

Yes, I know. I was trying to change the subject - to soften your blow a bit.

How will he learn, then? When using typed words to communicate, intentionally mistyping every post is at cross-purposes. It's a kindness on my part to point that out.

Madam Broshkina kindly gave you a link to the text file of The Epicurean in the Internet Archive. These are usually very poor quality.
However, they are made from djvu or pdf files which are very good, though bulky.
Try this:

http://www.archive.org/details/theepicurean00moor

You might find that the pdf meets your needs, otherwise you could use it as a basis for correcting the poor quality text file.
