Trajectory Introduction
A Note on eBook Publishing and the Trajectory Classics
Tablet publishing is not new. In fact, it was quite popular several thousand years ago when clay tablets were used as the original transportable media. Papyrus proved to be even easier to manage and to record the events of the day upon, but when that became harder to come by after the fall of the Roman Empire, Western writers turned to parchment and vellum. Calligraphers, copyists, correctors, illuminators, and rubricators (the lucky monks who were selected to paint the red letters) went about their long and laborious tasks to create a single book. Considering the effort that went into this, it is not surprising that books were often chained to tables in the original public libraries. From the Han Dynasty's creation of the woodblock printing method in the 3rd century, to Guttenberg's invention of moveable type in Europe around 1450, modern advances made it progressively easier to produce books and to make reading accessible to a larger number of people.
It is interesting to consider how readers must have reacted during the transition from beautifully hand-printed and custom illustrated books to the volumes that were mass-produced by a printing machine. The tactile experience of holding an original work of art must have been hard to part with, but few people had the chance to actually read these books, much less own them. It has been estimated that more books were published in the 50 years following Guttenberg's invention than in the prior history of mankind. Today, it is easy to imagine a future where personal digital libraries will rival yesterday's traditional public libraries.
Our goal here at Trajectory is to enable a new generation of readers to access and interact with the great works of mankind through the latest evolution in tablet publishing. We are deeply interested in allowing people to view these works through a new perspective, which includes the unique illustrations and the statistics generated through our semantic lens. Everyone who is inspired by evolving forms of art now has the opportunity to experience the Classics in a fresh way, and our hope is that our small contribution may enable readers to see these classic works in a new light.

About the Author

Charles John Huffam Dickens was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular.Born in Portsmouth, England, Dickens was forced to leave school to work in a factory when his father was thrown into debtors' prison. Although he had little formal education, his early impoverishment drove him to succeed. Over his career he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, 5 novellas and hundreds of short stories and non-fiction articles, lectured and performed extensively, was an indefatigable letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children's rights, education, and other social reforms.Dickens sprang to fame with the 1836 serial publication of The Pickwick Papers. Within a few years he had become an international literary celebrity, famous for his humour, satire, and keen observation of character and society. His novels, most published in monthly or weekly installments, pioneered the serial publication of narrative fiction, which became the dominant Victorian mode for novel publication. The installment format allowed Dickens to evaluate his audience's reaction, and he often modified his plot and character development based on such feedback. For example, when his wife's chiropodist expressed distress at the way Miss Mowcher in David Copperfield seemed to reflect her disabilities, Dickens went on to improve the character with positive features. Fagin in Oliver Twist apparently mirrors the famous fence Ikey Solomon; His caricature of Leigh Hunt in the figure of Mr Skimpole in Bleak House was likewise toned down on advice from some of his friends, as they read episodes.
