Thanks for the link!

There also seems to be a Project Gutenberg version of the first edition,
BTW, which includes reasonably nice scans of all the illustrations!
It seems the people who did it put a fair amount of care into it
(Coffee, oh how you inspire...

Nice! I'd seen the scanned pdf version of the first
edition, but this one is html, meaning someone scanned
and then OCR'd the whole thing... So much easier to
read, and better for searching than the pdf type where
they scan, and then just convert to pdf.

One thing that's not so nice about it is that the
entire book is all on a single page... making it a bit
unwieldy.
