Best Versions of Lewis Carroll?

I downloaded Through the Looking Glass and, of course, Alice. I THINK I got TtLG from Project Gutenberg as an ePub and Alice from here as an LRF, but I may have then confused. Both of them have irritating errors--TtLG has a bunch of letters messed up, where I think an OCR system was misinterpreting the flourishy first letter of a chapter, and Alice is almost entirely devoid of quotation marks. Can anyone point me to "cleaner" versions of these that will work on my Touch?

A bit of googling came up with a great web site:

http://www.alice-in-wonderland.net/alice.html

the PDF copies there look to be pretty good, but aren't ideally formatted for reading on a 5 or 6 inch reader. I took those copies and trimmed the margins as far as I could, which should help a bit (attached below.)

This isn't available as an ebook, but if you are interested in Lewis Carroll you really owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of The Annotated Alice:
