Original text is from Project Gutenberg. I cleaned up the formatting, fixed the quotes, and added a table of contents.

Thackeray, William Makepeace: The Memoirs of Barry Lyndon, V2, 8 Jul. 2020

There is a previous ePub of this (version V1 submitted by hobnail) here descended from Project Gutenberg file 4558. The current free version at Feedbooks is similar to V1 and PG. Errors corrected by this version V2 are:

1. A missing page added (in chapter VI, between the words “it behoves him” and “I am not of a saving”). Go here (digital page 141/444) to verify:

https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?...ew=1up&seq=141

2. Apostrophes. Errors where a single left quote error instead of an apostrophe/single right quote, as in the book and as should be. Occurred mostly at contracted words or dates beginning with an apostrophe.

3. A few words PG’s OCR software got wrong (such as “cars” should be “ears”).

Beyond those errors, changed are:
4. Capital characters that were used in place of italics are formatted to italic. Some words and phrases that PG didn’t “italicize”, but are so in the book, are italicized.

5. Font characters from the book are used: pound sterling symbol, umlauts, accents, etc.

6. Small caps are added (simulated, not embedded fonts).

7. CSS files redone. As was V1, is simplified from PG.

Nice job. Now that I've seen yours with the italics it makes the PG version look rather amateurish.


Thanks.
