Re: SOLO A Guide to the Lakes by Thomas West - annise

Yesssss!!! Chapters 2 and 6 are now uploaded and ready for spot PL. Would would I do without Sunday mornings? Anne, When it comes to cataloguing, would it be possible to replace the summary for the 'Wild and romantic' recording with the text below? It is a ridiculously long text and I have used some...

Re: SOLO A Guide to the Lakes by Thomas West - annise

Germany has a complicated history, so I am sure they had a good reason to leave! It didn't occur to me though that the 19th century German immigrants probably didn't think they were German! great grandfather was German - well from Hesse as Germany didn't exist when he came - and when I said he wrote...

Re: SOLO A Guide to the Lakes by Thomas West - annise

Yes, sledge not fledge. I made a lot of mistakes like this but didn't catch this one (or fable/sable!). Was you great grandfather German - Neuß? I believe that ß is basically long s + short s or z. It is definitely sledge not fledge - the thing that looks a bit like an f is a "long s" -it's easy to ...

Re: SOLO A Guide to the Lakes by Thomas West - annise

Thank you Erin! I will get these done in the next couple of days. Full disclosure. When I am at home I use a Blue Yeti mic inside a kind of homemade acoustic foam box to cut down the echo. We have a weekend place on the coast where I sometimes record on a handheld Zoom recorder with a couple of cush...

Re: [COMPLETE] Nada the Lily by H. Rider Haggard-ans

It's been a bit of a gloomy summer, hasn't it? It seems that the smoke was much worse in Melbourne than it was in Sydney, though we've now had it for a month or more. We are now having heavy rain (very welcome), but it still smells of smoke! I'm well out of the actual fire zone - I say zone because ...

Re: [COMPLETE] Nada the Lily by H. Rider Haggard-ans

Thanks Anne! I love the cover!

Next up is Jaufry the Knight and the fair Brunissende - a short one and I'm about half way through recording. Then it will be back to Haggard again for the Spirit of Baambatse.

Re: SOLO A Guide to the Lakes by Thomas West - annise

Thanks Erin! I will need to wait a bit to make the corrections. This was recorded with a handheld Zoom recorder that I use when I am away from home and I have left it elsewhere. I find the Claude glass quite fascinating - I'd love to have one but I suspect they cost a fortune! And I guess his viewin...

Re: SOLO A Guide to the Lakes by Thomas West - annise

By the way, the cover of this book is glorious. Yes, I wonder if it was the original or added later? Incidentally, you may know of this already, but just in case.... The book is part of Cornell's 'Wordsworth Collection' on Internet Archive. It is a bit of odd collection - and not that much by or ab...

Re: SOLO Nada the Lily by H. Rider Haggard-ans

Chapters 32, 34, 35 uploaded and ready for spot PL! Almost there!

Anne, if you are looking for an image for the cover, I especially liked the illustrations opposite p. 4 and p.82 - I am hoping for something less violent than the book itself :?:
