(SOLO) MARK TWAIN, A BIOGRAPHY by Albert Bigelow Paine (1861 - 1937) - VOLUME III Part 1: 1900-1907, Part 2: 1907-1910. by Albert Bigelow Paine (1861 - 1937).


This work has been considered the "go-to" bio of Mark Twain for over a hundred years. Albert Bigelow Paine (July 10, 1861 – April 9, 1937) was an American author and biographer best known for his work with Mark Twain. These recordings of Paine's exhaustive biography cover Twain's personal and literary life in detail, heretofore, unapproached. The published work is divided into 7 sections, on three separate recordings:

Recording #1
-VOLUME I, Part 1: 1835-1866
-VOLUME I, Part 2: 1866-1875

Recording #2
-VOLUME II, Part 1: 1875-1886
-VOLUME II, Part 2: 1886-1900

Recording #3 (This Recording)
-VOLUME III, Part 1: 1900-1907
-VOLUME III, Part 2: 1907-1910
-Appendixes
( John Greenman and Wikipedia with special thanks to Eberhard Schneider, Altlußheim, Germany)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2988
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): wordperfect



    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!
