Thank you very much! But unfortunately, most of the links do not work with me ?

 

Was there a problem with copy-paste in the link or is it me?

 

XXXDAn

 

There are extra spaces included in each hyperlink - when you click them, you get something which looks like this (not I have cut off the www so the full URL shows as text not a URL):

 

.gutenberg.org/ebooks/21389%C2%A0%C2%A0

 

Everything after the 21389 is superfluous - the work around I found was to click the link, then click in the address bar and backspace to remove the %C2%A0%C2%A0

 

So to get to Narrative of the surveying voyages of His Majesty's ships Adventure and Beagle, the actual link is http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38961

 

(NOTE - this is Volume 1 of 3 published 1838)

Wayne,

 

I, too, appreciate Ed's putting together this list.

 

When I try to open any of the links in Chrome, I get the error message "404 Not Found". When I look at the url, I don't have any additional characters after the 5 digit ID. I hope you might be able to help, some of those titles look intriguing. Thanks.

 

Best,

John

Unfortunately, can't help with Chrome.  I know in Firefox the extra characters show, and I suspect that they are there in Chrome as well but not showing.  They are a couple of spaces after the text which appear to be included in the link.  Try putting your cursor at the end of the address when you get the 404 error and then hitting back space until you get to the last number of the actual link and see if that helps.
