Around the World on a Bicycle Volume I. From San Francisco to Teheran
By Thomas Stevens
Ray Schumacher gutenberg@rjs.org http://rjs.org
Scanner's Notes: This was scanned from an original edition, copyright 1887, 547 pages. It is as close as I

could come in ASCII to the printed text. Scanning time: 15 hours OCR time: 20+ hours Proof #1: 25 hours
Proof #2: ? (A slow reading by a friend)

The numerous italics have been unfortunately omitted, and the conjoined '\u2018' have been changed to 'ae'; as well as others, similarly. I have left the spelling, punctuation, capitalization as close as possible to the printed text, including that of titles and headings. The issue of end-of-line hyphenation was difficult, as normal usage in the 1880's often hyphenated words which have since been concatenated.

Stevens also used phonetic spelling and italics for much of the unfamiliar language or dialects that he heard; a
great deal of foreign words and phrases are also included and always italicized. A word which might seem
mis-spelled, such as 'yaort', was originally in italics and was the 1886 spelling of 'yogurt'. Many of the names
of places and peoples have long since changed and so are no longer easily referenced.

The book is written in the common English of a San Francisco journalist of the era and so is filled with
contemporaneous idioms and prejudices, as well as his own wry wit.

One of the more unfortunate issues is the omission of the over 100 illustrations of the original edition. I also
elected to omit the informative captions. I hope to make an HTML edition available at
http://rjs.org/gutenberg/ which will include them.

If you find any scanning errors, out and out typos, punctuation errors, or if you disagree with my formatting
choices please feel free to email me those errors: gutenburg@rjs.org The space between the double quotes and
the quoted text is sometimes omitted, usually included. This is an artifact of the OCR program interpreting the
small space in the original print, and if someone wants to remove the space from all of the quotes, I would be
glad to see it.

I have written a wxPython program to assist in converting raw OCR text to the project's formatting, as well as general punctuation and spelling. http://rjs.org/gutenberg/OCR2Gutenberg/ Code contributions/modifications are most welcome; it is a bit of a hack, but it reduced the proof time needed by more than what it took to write 778 lines of code.
