Now in proofreading: White Dandy

White DandyOur latest proofreading project is an unusual item from prolific dime novel publisher J. S. Ogilvie: White Dandy; or, Master and I. A Horse’s Story.

This book, a self-described “companion to Black Beauty” follow’s that classic’s basic format, using a horse as a narrator and serving as a condemnation of animal cruelty.  A quick glance through the pages reveals some rather graphic violence, so this may not be the cute children’s book that the cover suggests.  Stay tuned for a closer analysis once the project completes and we are able to read the full text.

If you want to help preserve this vintage book in electronic format, you can join in at the project page. To learn more about the proofreading process, see this earlier post.
