Progress and troubleshooting table[edit]

Vol. Index % text[1] Best scan[2] Offset[3] Glitches[4] Comment[5]
1 index 100 [1] (poor) 14 Replaced with djvu from Google Books PDF. Good condition. Like the scan it replaced, without errata.
2 index 100 [2] (good) 12 New djvu, 100 dpi grayscale. Stray note stuck to one of the pages gone, but recorded. (may have had copyrighted material) No errata. Index restored
3 index 100 [3] (good) 6 New djvu file, while readable throughout, contains isolated blurred text. March 25, 3rd djvu version introduced replacing previous one; assumed all correct. 2nd and 3rd versions both have errata introduced into the text apparently by making text on such pages a little smaller so there is no shifting forward of the text onto the next page. Text and images aligned.Yes check.svg Done All text images present.
4 index 100 [4] (good) 4 Better scan, but now index gone.
5 index 100 [5] (good) 8 This 2011 text file includes 1904 Errata corrections, but needs index pages inserted into final six djvu pages of this file. Listing. Replace text.Yes check.svg Done Without terminating indices
6 index 100 [6] (good) 12 Deleted bot applied pages, text and image align, so undeletions possible if poor image scan Better quality version uploaded. Listing.
7 index 100 [7] (good) 6 30 DEC scan requires index pages - currently available on some pages from previous file. Text replaced. Yes check.svg Done Needs index pgs.
8 index 100 [8] (good) 4 Replaced with best scan.
9 index 100 [9] (poor) 6
10 index 100 [10] (fair) 8 Needs new text. Current text is best available (30 Jan 11). Will keep looking… All 15 problematic pages are identified on the index page. The text has been refreshed, but will require an alternative source to proofread and validate pending locating better source. Text refreshed for all problematic pages.
11 index 100 [11] (good) 6 Text replaced with the good version identified. Most red pages deleted, though may be some that were not meant to be deleted.
12 index 100 [12] (good) 6 Text images are reasonably good prior to page 368 (with a few that may have blurred sections). All replacement pages >367 are marked and have had text refreshed. Better text needed.
13 index 100 [13] (good) 6 Better text needed. Found. (1-31-11) April 7, 2013: As a caution, neither of the scans contains errata, but someone added errata to a page I was proofreading. Replace text. Yes check.svg Done
14 index 100 [14] (good) 6 Better text needed.
15 index 100 [15] (good) 6

Notes[edit]

  1. Percentage text added. Apart from vol. 1, text completed generally ranges between 2% and 4%. Text verified and marked is currently negligible. One point is that the project page suggests ligatures should be added; the æ ligature is very common in the DNB. Another point that needs to be visited is the use of strike-through text to show a "diff" for a later edition.
  2. The code here is "good" for the Toronto scans, "poor" for the Google scans, and "OK" for the Hyderabad scans that are of intermediate quality. This is the rule-of-thumb only: in some cases the Toronto scan for a page may be so corrupt that another scan works better.
  3. The offset is the difference of the djvu file number and the page number in the volume. This ought to be consistent throughout the volume: if it currently is known not to be, the entry is "n/a" and the next column gives details.
  4. The bot-generated initial postings have imperfections, to be noted here.
  5. Points include: the best scan may not have been used by the bot ("better text needed"); progress in formatting at least all the author templates.
