I have high-resolution scans of this books.  If Simon permits, I will
create OCR from these scans.  But I think, we must obtain author's
permission before OCR'ing.

PNG version of scans will be released soon.  While size of page is

And compact DjVu version will be released too.  Perhaps I could use
OCR'ed text for creating searchable version of DjVu?
