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

I spoke too soon about the dog being safe. Boo!

Section 4: a note on volume, and two from the same paragraph:

84.1 dB

20.28-20.30, top half p. 30
…lest [heard let] the cattle miscarry.

20.40, top half p. 30, omission
Nay, then, [if you will have time for thought, I give it.] Take these men,

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

Section 2 is spot PL OK, and section 3 is PL OK.

At least you've warned me about the violence. I was pretty nervous for a minute when he said he thought about killing his dog. I thought I'd have to report this to doesthedogdie.com!

Re: SOLO - The Late Mattia Pascal by Pirandello - dc

I'm sorry, I'm an awful, awful pedant but could you please add an S to 'his' in the final sentence of the new summary so it reads 'his own life.'?

I'll log off and leave you in peace now!

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

I'm querying two things in chapter 2: 2.04, false start, bottom half p. 12 Though- So I learned the arts of the medicine-men. 6.37-6.41, p. 14 mid-page “You whelp whom I have bred up to tear me!” Could you double check this? It sounds like the tears you cry, rather than the tearing that a whelp woul...

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

Chapters 00 and 01 are spot PL OK. I'm on a visit to the UK for a few more days, but I'll be back to this next week! Haggard does tend to gallop along. At least out of the selection I've read, there is always another action sequence around the corner. I'm glad to hear that this is following in that ...

Re: Short stories (Early works 1837-1852) - Gaskell-mas

Regarding leaving text out, who knows? This error could have crept in at any stage of the original process or the modern digital one. That's one of the mysteries of publishing! Sections 8 and 9 are spot PL OK. This project is ready to be catalogued. Well done, and hearty thanks for making more of Ga...

Re: [Solo Biography] Some Famous Women by Louise Creighton - dc

Hi Pam, Section 17 is PL OK. What a fascinating section. The material is widely known (although I enjoyed the unexpected juxtaposition of a daydreaming Palmerston and a stern Gladstone), but what a contemporary historian thought was essential was tremendous - as it was with McCarthy on Gladstone. I'...
