And Strindberg translations are in ebook format, but alas with the same formatting issues.
Use the page scans to proof and correct the OCR'd text, then upload a nice corrected book to the MR library for others to enjoy. If you like the book, it's perhaps worth considering a small investment of time to create a nice eBook? Not only do you benefit, but everyone else does, too.
