Empires: The English Longbowman

Watermarked PDF

The Empires Series

Unit Update:

"The English Longbow is a tall bow, made of yew wood, that was predominately used during the Medieval ages, best known for ‘winning’ the Battle of Agincourt during the Hundred Years war, though other notable battles include Crecy and Sluys and Poitiers.

The longbow was an effective weapon of its era due to the long range the arrow would travel, coupled with its incredible armour penetration capabilities.

The longbowman himself, was considered a valuable asset to an army, many of which could aspire to Yeoman of the Crown, a title that showed they were the greatest archer’s of a commander’s forces."

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.
