Richardson, Samuel: Clarissa. v1, 27 June 2008

Clarissa was published in 1748. At around a million words, it is generally regarded as the longest novel in the English language. Surely something this superlative is needed within the MobileRead high-quality eBook collection.

It is of a genre known as an Epistolary Novel - where the activities are laid out in the form of lengthy letters between and among the various protagonists. There are 7 large volumes to this book and hundreds of letters, most of them multiple (real-book size) pages, and many a dozen pages or more. Embedded within these letters are other letters, verses, quotations, and other literary devices.

I have provided two versions. For those of you who would like one huge volume, there is a monolithic file. It is just less than 3000 pages on my reader. However, I most recommend the version that is in two parts. The author provided a convenient logical break between Vols 4 and 5 - so I used that hint. Each part is "only" about 1500 pages.

I structured and formatted the text and created links for each of the letters and a few more special chapters. I made a few corrections that I spotted, but no I didn't do a word-for-word walkthrough type of proofreading. The cover is a sketch of the author.

I am also providing the HTML source that I created for these three files. It is really clean and well-organized (and even parsimonious!) and has passed the W3C validation. I didn't make any other eBook-specific formats because I don't like to make things I cannot test on my own equipment. And I only own a Sony Reader. I trust someone(s) else can make other versions from the HTML. If you do that, set up your converter to insert a page break before each "<H3 class=title … " tag, and nowhere else.

I hope you all enjoy reading this as much as I "enjoyed" making it!

Statistics on these combined eBooks include:
~ 900,000 words
~ 19,000 paragraphs
~ 1,500 pages as viewed via MS-Word or MS-IE.
~ 3,000 pages on the Sony Reader (small font)
(note: I have located several additional letters and expanded letters that were missing from the source material I worked from. I will incorporate these in a Ver 2, soon.)

i suppose this is the "wee" book you mentioned ? thanks for posting it.

special thanks for the html source ! since lrf is a closed format it's great to have that for those of us who don't have a sony.
