Carpenter's Geographical Reader: Asia by Frank Carpenter (1855 - 1924).

Quote:
Through travelogues, lifestyle descriptions and cultural notes the reader will visit China, Japan, India, Korea, parts of the Holy Land and Turkey as they were in the early 20th century.. ( BettyB)


  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/carpentersgeogra00carprich

  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of Carpenter's Geographical Reader: Asia. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      " Carpenter's Geographical Reader: Asia by Frank Carpenter. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Carpenter's Geographical Reader: Asia by Frank Carpenter. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Carpenter's Geographical Reader: Asia by Frank Carpenter. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

  4. Example filename geographicalreaderasia_##_carpenter_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number

MC and DPL checking in Betty!

I had marked the following version as in the same series with the other volumes - will it work to read from this one?

Looks good to me..

I think we should perhaps change the file name to asia instead of as? Looks peculiar I think.
Will add the titles tomorrow.

Betty,

You're right, abbreviation made sense with NA, SA and EU, not so much with Asia.

I'll change the first post and move us to going solo.

Also, I think the filename needs to be geographical reader in keeping with all the other-- not geographic.
Your initials are in the title, intro and outro if you want to delete them or relocate the one in the title

Also,, as I was entering chapter titles I discovered that the text you suggested has twelve fewer chapters than the one I found which may be the 1911 version. I think I would like to do the longer version as it has a lot interesting chapters like Afghanistan and Mecca. Can we switch gears?

Betty,

You can change the first post however you want, and change the file names. None of that impacts the catalog record, which I would need to update behind the scenes if needed.

As to the book, which version are you looking at? The one I pointed to was the 1911 version - see copyright here: https://archive.org/stream/carpentersgeogra00carprich#page/n9/mode/2up The 1911 edition has 49 chapters vs 36 in the 1897 edition.
There is a

I honestly don't know what is going on. :shock:

The link I used that fell short with only 37 chapters was archive.org/details/B-001-014-460. It is 1897 which was what I said I was going to use in the template.

Not sure how I got away from your link. Will go back to using that Should I change 1897 to 1911?

I'll update the catalog record to reflect that you are reading from is copyright 1911.

With that, are we sorted? You've read enough intros for this series that I didn't think it mattered what the first post said, you would read it the way it should be regardless. :wink:

Thanks Betty.

I'm on worship team this week and so have been spending my car time listening to the songs, again and again, to make sure I hear and remember the parts. I'll be back to PLing in a day or two.

Betty,

I couldn't get the files to download this morning from the MW, and couldn't figure out why because they are on the uploader and I could download them direct from there.

And then I looked at the MW a bit more closely . . . .

And you've switched the link and the notes boxes, so the time is in the link and the link is in the notes.

I've downloaded all the files thus far from the uploader, but when you get a chance, could you fix the MW links?

Thanks.

MaryAnn
