Swift, Jonathan: Gulliver's Travels. PDF (9x12cm) v2 27 May 2010
This is the famous four-part satirical novel by Jonathan Swift, published anonymously in 1726 as "Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World", and later revised in 1735. The novel is ostensibly the story of Lemuel Gulliver, a surgeon and sea captain who visits remote regions of the world. In his four voyages, Gulliver finds strange people and societies through whose flaws and virtues the author intelligently criticizes the uses and vices of the European society of his time.
I created the PDF from the Project Gutenberg text, with pdflatex, and I added a
missing passage in Chapter III, Part III. The book is nicely formatted and typeset, with table of contents, 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 "chapterbar" to the top of every page. It has two bars marking the progress on the whole book and on the current chapter, which I hope are unobtrusive and helpful enough.
Any kind of feedback is welcome.
EDIT (v2): Fixed a few typos.
