Hi, there!

I'm new to Standard Ebooks, but I'm a vet of PGDP and want to try my hand at this, starting with the first PG book I read. It's purely text, it was published over 150 years ago, it clocks in under 50,000 words, and it's the most popular book on Gutenberg.org for someone important enough to be name-checked in my high school's American history textbook.


Let me know what you think!

Thanks!

Great, that one would be a good start.

I'm having a hard time finding page scans in a cursory search. When you
find them, make sure to eyeball each page to see if any formatting is
missing from the PG transcription, like verse, blockquotes, etc.

Since there's a dedication and preface you'll have to include half title.

See the manual for how to format subtitles in the metadata.

Make sure to read the Standard Ebooks Manual of Style before starting,
as you won't know what to fix if you haven't read the standards. In
particular, please closely review the semantics, high level patterns,
and typography sections:

https://standardebooks.org/manual

https://standardebooks.org/manual/latest/4-semantics

https://standardebooks.org/manual/latest/7-high-level-structural-patterns

https://standardebooks.org/manual/latest/8-typography

The step by step guide will take you from start to finish:

https://standardebooks.org/contribute/producing-an-ebook-step-by-step

Please email often if you have any questions at all. Our standards are
well-established so there is probably already a standard for formatting
whatever problem you've encountered.

When you're ready, email back with a link to your Github repository so
that I can mark you as having started.

Have fun! :)

I found a scan on HathiTrust. It looks like there *are* illustrations (pp. 9, 57, 87, and 297), but they didn't show up on PG. How should I capture them?

You can ignore those. We typically don’t include illustrations unless they’re required for understanding of the text (a map or diagram for example) or, on occasion and with review from SE Editor in Chief, when they’re as well known as the text and from the original printing.

Still working on the book! For the cover, since the story takes place in NYC, I propose this image be the cover. It was taken in 1865, close to the book's 1868 publication, and the Library of Congress, which hosts the photo, says they are unaware of any rights on it.

I have a semantics question. In chapter 8, there are two instances (attached) where a character mentions Heralds, as in a plural of the newspaper's name. How should I mark this in the text? I was thinking something along the lines of <i epub:type="se.name.publication.newspaper">Herald</i>s. Is that correct?

Sorry,  but the cover has to be a piece of fine art, ideally an oil painting or a watercolour indistinguishable from such. Have a look at the section in the manual about art. https://standardebooks.org/manual/1.7.0/10-art-and-images#10.3

Sorry for the late reply!

Marking those as <i epub:type="se.name.publication.newspaper">Herald</i>s is fine.

Thank you for notifying me of the cover requirements and for the semantics advice. I have a couple of other suggestions from the Smithsonian for cover art, but I have a bigger question right now.

As you can see by the thread, I titled the project Ragged Dick...with the Boot-Blacks, as it says on PG and in the HathiTrust scans. However, the modernize-spelling macro changed "boot-black" to the Merriam-Webster-approved "bootblack" everywhere, including the title. If it changed and the cover followed suit, I'd be fine with it, but it didn't change the cover. I created a cover with the updated spelling via the create-draft macro and uploaded it to Github (see "Changed images" commit), but when I used the build macro, it created covers with the old spelling. How can I avoid this issue in the future?

There are two folders that need to be changed: /images and /src/epub/images. Once you've updated the files in both of those folders, the cover and titlepage should show the modernized spelling.

Note that if you edit the text in the images that are in ./images/, the
text will not be aligned correctly. Instead of editing the SVGs, should
run `se create-draft` with the correct title into a dummy folder, and
then copy the images it creates in the dummy ./images/ into your actual
repo. Then, run `se build-images` on your actual repo to generate
./src/epub/images/.

Both of those cover art options look good. Let me know which one you
finally select. Thanks!

Almost done with my draft. I have a couple of questions.

lint is saying I need to make my description escaped HTML. My description as it stands is simply a line of text:

        <meta id="long-description" property="se:long-description" refines="#description">
            Dick Hunter is a shoeshiner working and living on the streets of New York City in the mid-19th century. Despite being dealt a bad hand, Dick attempts to extricate himself from his situation and become respectable. However, it won’t be easy, thanks to the bullies, con men, and thieves that roam the city. Dick has to outmatch them through his wits, his work ethic, his honesty, and a bit of luck. This is Alger’s most well-known novel, and it sets the formula for his numerous subsequent rags-to-riches works for which he became famous, as well as introduces the “Alger hero” into the literary canon.
        </meta>

What am I missing?

Second, it says I need to link Alger's name in the long description to his SE author page, but he doesn't have one yet. Is there a placeholder I can make instead? Lastly, it says I need a "chapter" CSS class. How should I make one?

The long description must be escaped HTML, but yours is just a plain
text string. See any other long description for an example of what they
might look like:

You can still add the link <a href="https://standardebooks.org/ebooks/horatio-alger-jr"> to the long description. This link will exist once this book is released.

You can also remove the <div class="chapter"> from all of your files. We don't need them.

Perfect, thank you. I just have two more errors to iron out:Screenshot 2023-03-20 at 4.21.12 PM.png
The top one really confuses me because that header looks exactly like the 26 others, and this is the only one giving an error. I even copy-pasted one from another chapter and changed the title number to be sure, but it's still showing this error. What do?

Also, is it okay to post this to the site without hyperlinking the SE author page, since this is the first book of theirs being published to the site, or does a page have to be created?

The error is because you have some extra <h2> and <h3> elements near the bottom in chapter-27. You'll want to remove those as each section can have only one <h..> element and figure out some other way to style that. It looks like it could be a blockquote to me.

Regarding the author, you'll still want to link to the author's page using the standard url. It doesn't exist yet, but it will be created (not something you need to worry about).
