Sterne, Laurence: Tristram Shandy Volume 1. PDF. 12 July 2009
PDF version of The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman. Volume 1 by very dead Laurence Sterne (died 1768) .
This PDF version differs from the version already present in that it closely matches the layout of the 1760 publication, except with modern font (no long s or ligature). I have tried to render the dashes, black pages, italics, blackletter, and Greek properly.

Thanks, this is a wonderful piece of work you are doing!
It's also a great example the formidable formatting capacities of pdf for ebook use.

Thank you, tobor! I like Tristram Shandy, gentleman, and it's funny the way he addresses the reader, e.g. ..."either laugh with me, or at me, or in short, do any thing, - only keep your temper".
This is very entertaining reading.
You may want to note how many downloads there's been of the previous version when you upload a new version. (Its not important, but its interesting to keep track.)

Thanks for that. It must have taken you ages! It's so much better than a plain text version. I look forward to future volumes...
