Journals of Victoria HawkesThe American Civil War By G.A.S.L.IG.H.T.

Watermarked PDF


From the Journals of Victoria Hawkes:

There was the thunder-clap of a single cannon. ‘The game hasbegun anew, I said to Captain Rogers. He looked at me but said nothing. We knew what was about to happen. Slowly, we both turned, and looked out over the valley below us. Troops moved from the cover of the woods on our left. Not looking back at

me, he smiled, and said, Then let us roll the dice, and take our chances. With a series of swift, almost mechanical, motions, he tightened his chest straps, drew his pistol, and grabbed the control handle of his jump-pack. With an explosive burst of vapor he shot forward and up into the air. I was, I realized, all alone on the hillside; with the carbine in my hand and the battle laid out before me.

V. H. June 4, 1863

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
