Re: [CHINA] Oriental Gardening by W. Chambers - availle

Thank you both; Section 2 has been corrected and re-uploaded.

From now on, I'll make a note of where each section begins and ends.

Re: [COMPLETE] London Labour etc., Vol 1 -Mayhew-ans

The summary looks perfect. Just one possible change: you were going to include Diana as proof-listener, as well as Gill.

We worked well together. Thanks for your work, Anne.

I hope you enjoy it ... do remember to miss out the sections which just consist of tables of data.

Re: [SOLO] London Labour etc., Vol 1 -Mayhew-ans

Thanks, Anne; it'll be interesting to see how many downloads we get.

I'm glad to be done. It must have been one of the longest-running projects on the forum. For a rest, I've started on a nice, simple, short book on oriental gardening.

Re: Multiple versions of one text?

No limits; each new reading offers a different reader to the listeners. Or, if you like, and closer to the underlying philosophy of LibriVox, we can all read what we want to read ... barring copyright difficulties.

A few of our books have six and more different readings.

Re: [SOLO] London Labour etc., Vol 1 -Mayhew-ans

Section 89 edited and re-uploaded ... and thanks again, Gill. It was a pleasure to work with you ... a fellow word-perfect-er It would have taken a lot of work to get the files rechecked for Audible; I had gone through twenty or so sections before I thought to look at Audible (I was actually looking...

Re: ~ [CHINA] Oriental Gardening by W. Chambers - availle

That's fine; I'll get to work on a summary as well. In the past, I've often wondered how most readings can attract a DPL without a summary to give some colour to the title .... and now, here I am doing the same.

Re: ~ [CHINA] Oriental Gardening by W. Chambers - availle

The genre keywords are fine; I was wondering how to do that.

Why's "[CHINA]" in the heading, though? It doesn't bother me; I'm just curious.

[CHINA] Oriental Gardening by W. Chambers - availle

Dissertation on Oriental Gardening, by Sir William Chambers (1723 - 1796) A little essay on the Chinese style of gardening, as opposed to the continental style, which the author finds too formal with too many straight lines, and the English, about which he is equally disparaging. In his preface, he...

Annise,
I've heard from Gill; she's fine. Just a little interference from real life.
