Re: SOLO Geraldine Jewsbury in Jerrold's Shilling Magazine

Annise MC and Newgatenovelist DPL - I'll need to add the source text links later, but they are all from scans of the original magazine on Hathi Trust, so no problem with PD.

SOLO Geraldine Jewsbury in Jerrold's Shilling Magazine-ans

Geraline Jewsbury in Jerrold's Shilling Magazine, 1846-47, by Geraldine Jewsbury (1812 - 1880) "The most striking feature in the present day, far more than that of railways even, is the utter chaos into which all previously received principles and opinions are reduced". So begins 'Today', the first...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Thanks for the Thomas Walker book link! This has happened to me before: I couldn't find a title by searching on Google, but I could access it when I got the direct link - I don't if it is because I'm in Australia, or just my poor Internet skills :( But the Wm Hone book is not a memoir of himself. It...

And here is Part 2 ready for PL! This is really vintage Mrs G. - eight deaths in one short story!

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories4_14_gaskell.mp3 - 56:00 Part one of Crowley Castle ready for PL, and Part Two won't be too far behind... There is no break in the text so Part Two will just start again at the top of p. 20. There are a couple of errors I'm aware of. 00:40 - In my read...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Thanks for the PL notes - the Cage at Cranford all corrected and reuploaded. I'm still struggling with editing the last piece, which I foolishly decided to read in a female London accent :(

Almost there, just one more epic edit to go!

Thanks for the Jewsbury link, I need to spend some time looking around!

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

So you are an expert! I'd be interested to know what the piece you are tracking down is, but only when you are successful! Which leads me to ask what you think of this list of Jewsbury reviews in the Athenaeum? Is it reliable: https://athenaeum.city.ac.uk/reviews/contributors/contributorfiles/JEWSBU...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Parts 10-12 corrected and ready for spot PL! Where I have had to record, it doesn't sound brilliant, I'm afraid. I have abandoned the recording setup I used for this one, or rather I still have it but it has moved house so it just doesn't sound the same. You'll hear the new one when I set up Geraldi...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Thanks for doing these so quickly! It means I can get the done together with the earlier files this weekend. These were nearly all editing mistakes, coming from the number of times I had to read certain lines when recording. Plus it wouldn't do suggest that Robert Southey was executed The interestin...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

I have just been having a look at the Pickering complete works in our library, which look like they have been barely touched since they were bought in 2005! They are interesting because each piece has a short introduction - I have been relying on Jenny Uglow's biography but she often has little or n...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Yes, definitely mulct - not a word I knew, but it has the right meaning. I'll be a little slow with corrections on this from now on because I have moved this recording setup elsewhere, but we'll get there in the end. Everything is recorded - just the editing to do, but that can be a slow process wit...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Here we go with an Italian Institution - the Camorra!

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories4_12_gaskell.mp3

I've renumbered and created space for the French songs in the MW.

Yes, we do have that edition of the collected works in the library. I'll take a look next time I'm there...
