A Treatise on Bread, and Bread-Making , by Sylvester Graham (1794 - 1851)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/a-treatise-on-bread-and-bread-making-by-sylvester-graham/
Sylvester Graham, also known as the "Father of Vegetarianism", was a Presbyterian minister who emphasized clean eating. Graham endorsed the consumption of unprocessed foods, as close in kind as possible to those consumed by our wild ancestors. Whole-grain bread was a favorite topic of his, and in this treatise he expounds upon the origins, benefits, and production of the healthiest bread possible.

Graham's message about healthy living exploded in popularity after an 1832 cholera outbreak in New York City. On his lecture tour after the publication of A Treatise on Bread, and Bread-Making in 1837, he was thronged with admirers, although his lecture circuit was interrupted by angry butchers and commercial bakers. His ideas about the connection between food and physical and spiritual health inspired the Kelloggs, and the Graham cracker is named after him. (Summary by Tatiana Chichilla)

0-4 are all ready for your listening pleasure. They can be enjoyed in any order. This guy really loves coarse bread. I particularly like when he links the Roman Empire's domination to their rejection of superfine flour in section 4.

Hello, Tatiana.

Sections 0, 2 and 3 are PL OK.

Just 2 PL notes on Section 1:

~02:16 (missing word) I hear "... and indeed, which the stone mortars,have...."

The text goes "... and indeed, which, with the stone mortars, have..."

~ 03:32 there seems to be an external noise.

He's practically convinced me to ditch white bread. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi

Just a couple PL notes on Section 04:

~12:25 (unclear word) I seem to hear "... and contracted with government, to supply the eastern diet of the county of Essex..."
The text goes "... and contracted with government, to supply the eastern district of the county of Essex... ."

~14:38 (year changed) I hear " When I left home and came to America in 1861...". The text is "When I left home and came to America in
1816... ."

Have a great weekend. :D
