Firbank, Ronald: Caprice, v1, 1 February 2010.

Ronald Firbank [1886–1926]
Caprice [1917]

A short but decadent novel, in which a clergyman’s daughter escapes to London, determined to become an actress. Will she fall victim to the procuresses and deviants of the metropolis?
Contains the N-word as a way of referring to black musicians, though not in a pejorative way.
Made from scans found at HathiTrust.

I did a fast look on the HathiTrust pages; your book was the first time I saw the organization referred to. I'd might like to download the entire ocr of several books from the site but I was only able to read a book online, page by page. From your book on MobilRead, I assume it must be possible to download an entire book ocr but it wasn't evident to me - Would you let me know how to do an entire ocr download from the site?

1. Download each page in PDF. This takes ages.
2. I usually join the PDFs together, using PDF Join:
http://www.pdfjoin.com/
3. Then OCR. I'm using FineReader 10.

Alternatively, you could try cutting and pasting the text version, page by page, into a Doc, then doing a line-by-line comparison with the online text. The automatic text conversions have a fair number of errors.

Thanks for the info, Patricia. You have more dedication than I to do a page by page download! Perhaps I'll wait and hope that the trust develops a full book download sometime in the future.
