Richardson, Samuel: Clarissa. v1, 27 June 2008

Clarissa was published in 1748. At over a million words, it is generally regarded as the longest novel in the English language.

The ebook ending with '_1200.imp' is for the REB 1200; the other '.imp' for the EBW 1150.

Based on the LRF version prepared by TedPark; I used it's source html since it was offered up for conversion.

It is of a genre known as an Epistolary Novel - where the activities are laid out in the form of lengthy letters between and among the various protagonists. There are 7 large volumes to this book and hundreds of letters, most of them multiple (real-book size) pages, and many a dozen pages or more. Embedded within these letters are other letters, verses, quotations, and other literary devices.

I have provided two versions. For those of you who would like one huge volume, there is a monolithic file. It is just less than 3000 pages on my reader. However, I most recommend the version that is in two parts. The author provided a convenient logical break between Vols 4 and 5 - so I used that hint. Each part is "only" about 1500 pages.

I structured and formatted the text and created links for each of the letters and a few more special chapters. I made a few corrections that I spotted, but no I didn't do a word-for-word walkthrough type of proofreading. The cover is a sketch of the author.

I am also providing the HTML source that I created for these three files. It is really clean and well-organized (and even parsimonious!) and has passed the W3C validation. I didn't make any other eBook-specific formats because I don't like to make things I cannot test on my own equipment. And I only own a Sony Reader. I trust someone(s) else can make other versions from the HTML. If you do that, set up your converter to insert a page break before each "<H3 class=title … " tag, and nowhere else.

I hope you all enjoy reading this as much as I "enjoyed" making it!
