It was written at the time for Labyrinth Lord, but is also useable with any other "B/X" style game such as Old School Essentials with no conversion.

It would take a fair bit of conversion. It is designed for use with Labyrinth Lord and as such works seamlessly with D&D B/X, Old School Essentials, and other Basic/Expert style fantasy RPGs.

How easily does this book work with Swords and Wizardry?

With the exception of S&W being single save and LL being muti-save, it should fit pretty interchangably.

Does this book require LL or can it be used with B/X only? Thanks in advance.

Am I to assume that the Cultist class uses the attack and save values of the Cleric class?

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.
