I read the text and it seems fine. I did not check it against a book. In a couple of places is written:

  • * * * *

Which is a bit odd. S Sepp 19:39, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

A line of five asterisks separated by spaces is one of Project Gutenberg's ways to indicate thought breaks. In printed matter these are usually indicated by an empty line. In PG etexts, empty lines however separate paragraphs, which is why different mark-up had to be invented for the thought-break. In HTML you could use a horizontal line (HR) or extra spacing.-- 23:46, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

why is there two transcription projects? is this really worth having two ? ThomasV 09:32, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
The 1913 edition is illustrated. John Vandenberg (chat) 09:46, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
so why not scrap the first one ? ThomasV 09:50, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
I just inserted the titles and a frontispiece from the index being used for the transcript, I assume that is the way this page is going. If the earlier edition is sound I see no reason to avoid having both. Cygnis insignis (talk) 11:53, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
I just noticed this is featured, providing a stable text is requirement for an FT: have I just disrupted that? Cygnis insignis (talk) 11:58, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Quotation marks[edit]

The text is inconsistent regarding the use of “curly quotes” vs. "straight quotes". This should probably be fixed before it goes on the main page. Which version is preferred here? WS:STYLE doesn't seem to have anything to say on the issue. Angr 05:42, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

A very interesting comment on the artwork at the title was noted at my talk, suggesting that Arthur Rackham may be responsible. CYGNIS INSIGNIS 04:28, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
