Excerpt
Of all the beautiful women of history, none has left us such convincing proofs of her charms as Cleopatra, for the tide of Rome’s destiny, and, therefore, that of the world, turned aside because of her beauty. Julius Caesar, whose legions trampled the conquered world from Canopus to the Thames, capitulated to her, and Mark Antony threw a fleet, an empire and his own honor to the winds to follow her to his destruction. Disarmed at last before the frigid Octavius, she found her peerless body measured by the cold eye of her captor only for the triumphal procession, and the
friendly asp alone spared her Rome’s crowning ignominy.

In cleopatra_split_16.html the last one, Endnote 4 uses calibre_class_7 instead of calibre_class_6. Also, the css for calibre_class_7 spells it Justify rather than justify.

Similar to my Ceaser comment, the divs after an img lack a class.

Removed .prc from the title since this is an ePub. Note that Charlie died in late 2017.
