I have found an e-book copy of Howard Carter's book "The tomb of Thoutmôsis IV"

This seems to be one of the series sponsored by Theodore Davis and I wanted to see what all the criticism was about concerning Davis's publications.

Unfortunately the e-book consists of a very poor OCR scan which makes puzzling out what is being said very difficult. See this for an example:

M5il"^^^iE<j^' "-"^^^'^^ °^' ^^^^ ^^^'° ^^o^'l<^^^^^es of tlie Sonth and of tlie North, Stable in his Kinirdoms as Tonmou," ^^IH^^ '" , "The Golden

^ fJSSrl I I <:^> Q llllll

Plorus, Powerful of .Sword, Destroyer of the barbarians," ^f^(o^zBM\\

" Tlie King .Manakhperouria," "^[^(IP?,^]. " !^«'n <'i'


And believe me there's a lot worse than that.

Does anyone know of a reliable source in .txt format so that I can correct this mess and maybe let others have it. The original is out of copyright but I don't know if those who did the scan have any rights to what has been published.

Any help would be appreciated as I think that a readable copy of this book may be of some value.
