Scan / Edit NotesThis has to be one of the best all in one History books dealing with Roman and Greek periods that I have ever had the privilege of scanning. Due to its enormous size (approx 882 + pages with more pictures than I care to count) all of which had to be scanned one page at a time (pictures scanned separately); there will be no text or pdb version. The text alone was over 2 MB in size. IMHO the effort was well worth it as this is a treasure house of knowledge.Unfortunately due to its size I will be breaking the book up into chapters (linked) instead of using the newer method of making one large html file with bookmarks. -Sorry about this-Versions available and duly posted:Format: v1.5 (HTML) Format: v1.5 (Ubook-HTML) Genera: History Extra's: Pictures Included Copyright: 1986 / 1993 Scanned: November 10 2003Posted to:alt.binaries.e-book (HTML-PIC) alt.binaries.e-book (HTML-UBook)Note:The U-Book version is viewable on PC and PPC (Pocket PC). Occasionally a PDF file will be produced in the case of an extremely difficult book.
