Lit Slits, Volume I

Sure, you're proud of all those famous books on your bookshelf - but how many of them have you read? Let's find out. In this quiz, we'll show you a vertical strip xeroxed from the text. We want you, using the font and the out-of-context words you can discern, to tell us what the book is.

(And a side note before we begin: we can't claim credit for this idea. Lit Slits debuted in January 1993 at Williams College's semi-annual Trivia Contest. Special thanks to Des and Daniel for their assistance).
