Sumner – “Earth Hunger and other Essays”

This is to make available William Graham Sumner’s, book Earth-Hunger and other  Essays      as  compact pdf-files. The target was to simplify  printing off the essays and other parts of the book or to read them  on a smart phone.

Description of my technical processing:

I took the  pdf-version  from  https://archive.org/details/earthhungerother00sumniala

and  processed it with    the OCR-programm FineReader 12 Professional .  The parts of the book ware saved als pdf-files with a resolution of 150 dpi and without the original picture.

I made only minor corrections. For example the Umlaut  ü in  “menschenwürdiges” or “menschwürdig” in  An Examination of a Noble Sentiment was not correctly recognized by FineReader, since the document language to be used was English.    The French word sensibilité too was incorrectly recognized in the same essay.

If you find any more errors, please let me know by the  comment function.
