Try exploding it with convertLIT (there seems to be some problem in the LIT file that's preventing calibre from converting it)

I'm just assigning this to "corrupted file". I could probably fix the LIT converter to generate partial output, but since I didn't write that code,it is too much effort for one file.

When viewed with M$ software, the document appears fine..
This includes the copyright message. It can't be that corrupted.
It's part of a large e-book collection, if one is like it, dollars to doughnuts you can bet more files will be like it.
It was found here: http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/ebooks/Wlist.html
In the meanwhile, however, the Palm file in this case converts - the output is a little questionable but it works.
