Welcome to Fadedpage.com!
Faded Page is an archive of eBooks that are provided completely free to everyone. The books are produced by volunteers all over the world, and we believe they are amongst the highest quality eBooks anywhere. Every one has been scanned, run through OCR software, proofed, formatted and assembled extremely carefully, using hundreds of volunteer hours. These books are public domain in Canada (because we follow the Canadian copyright laws), but if you are in another country, you should satisfy yourself that you are not breaking the copyright laws of your own country by downloading them. You are free to do whatever you like with these books, but we hope that mainly...you will enjoy reading them.

Who’s up for a game of cards? Let’s assemble the deck with some books from the Faded Page catalogue that have kings, queens, and jacks in the title.
The Uncrowned King, by Baroness Orczy, is a historical novel first published in 1935. As with many of Orczy’s historical novels, this is set during the French Revolution and features a cameo appearance by the Scarlet Pimpernel.
Moving across the Channel to England, Queen Victoria, by Lytton Strachey, is a biography of the aforementioned queen. The Faded Page edition reproduces the paintings and illustrations by Edwin Landseer, Edward Corbould, and Heinrich von Angeli.
Historical Canada rounds out our hand with Jack Chanty: A Story of Athabasca, by Hulbert Footner. Jack is a travelling musician who plies his trade by rafting down the river with his banjo.
