Putting a Book Online - Every Schoolboy Knows...

Today I experimented with putting a scanned book online. The resulting 'Macaulay Lord Clive and Warren Hastings' pages are here.

I scripted the processing as much as possible and the text is obtained through optical character recognition so it is not perfect - but it isn't disasterous either.

I am curious to see if these pages receive any traffic - I guess we shall see.

The line about 'every schoolboy' ('Every schoolboy knows who imprisoned Montezuma, and who strangled Atahualpa.') which I suppose used to be a famous phrase is on page 9, here - in case you are interested.
