An Episode of Flatland

I got on faster than I expected this evening and now have the first draft scan of Hinton's An Episode of Flatland on line. As far as I know this is the first time the complete text has been put on line - this may be because it simply isn't as good a book as Abbott's Flatland, although the physical world described (at least in the introduction) is a good deal more scientifically plausible than the original. Unfortunately later sections tend to under-emphasise the peculiar nature of the 2D world. I still think I can do something with it for RPG purposes, though the next Forgotten Futures will come first.

I'd be grateful for comments before I put up links to it - there are probably lots of errors I've missed.
