100 Less Than Useful Books to Find on a Steampunk Bookshelf

Watermarked PDF

This is a supplement that is intended to flesh out the bookshelves in a steampunk setting. When players find books, some of them may be valuable or useful, but these will not be the only books present in many cases, so what about those that aren't useful or valuable?

This is a list of 100 different, low utility and not exactly valuable books that can be used to answer players questions about what books they find. Of course, if the book is described, it may cause players to think it is valuable. Each book has its title, author and a brief overview of the contents provided. There is a selection of both fiction and non-fiction books, on subjects such as steam power, clockwork, analytical engines, airships and exploration.

Here is a sample result:

How to Scent Your Steam by Mary Thincher - Non-fiction, how to use different additives to boilers to make the steam produced have different scents

One page of the supplement is the cover, one page the front matter and introduction.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
