I can't see the epubs, nor the PDFs here. Anyway, they have been available for years now at http://theanarchistlibrary.org/HTML/Petr_Kropotkin__The_Great_French_Revolution_1789-1793.html

Also, the ToC is invisible to not logged in.

What is the "ToC"?

The epub and PDF is now there.

Regarding the anarchist library, they have been nicking our stuff for years so it's about time somebody pilfered some of theirs!

I contribute to the anarchist library a lot so I should be able to get some of their stuff to contribute to the Libcom library.

That would be great, thanks.

Just to say that I noticed it looked like you had some issues with the page order, and had to create a few separate books - although this would have made it impossible for readers to navigate. So I have put all the chapters into one book. One of us admins will sort out the page order later.

But I see where you're confusion came from: you were giving every chapter a weight. However, you don't have to do that. Child pages are ordered firstly by weight, then alphabetically. So if you give chapters double-digit numbers they automatically all go into the correct order without having to change the weights of any of them (i.e. chapter 01, chapter 02, etc). Then you just have to do change the weight of things like preface (to a negative number) or epilogue (to a positive number) to make them sit at the top or bottom as required.

Cheers again for your contributions! And I'm not having a go here just trying to help you save time in the future

Actually, they have been *fixing* your stuff for years. And since when is *yours* stuff? And I think they are glad the *stuff* is being distrubuted. Nice attitude, anyway.

As a side note, the server isn't sending the correct MIME type for the epub, which should be "application/epub+zip", not "text/plain". Cheers

I wouldn't take everything so seriously.

I'm afraid I don't understand what your comment about the epub file means. Could you elaborate?

You have to fix the webserver configuration or the browser wouldn't recognize the EPUB as an epub. If you care.

Run a google search with "epub mimetype webserver"
