The Chronicles of Crime Vol 2 by Camden Pelham ( - ).
This catalogue of human weakness and at times downright atrocity has been brought together by Camden Pelham, a barrister-at-law of the Inner Temple during the second half of the 19th century. It is given in chronological order, the first case listed is from 1700, and the final case in Volume 1 being in 1816. Some of the most famous cases of the age are listed, from Dick Turpin and Captain Kidd, to the assassination of Spencer Perceval MP, and the Luddites. Some cases will shock with descriptions of horrific murders, whilst others will amuse with the idiocy of the perpetrators. These 275 cases give a fascinating insight into life during 18th and 19th century Britain. ( Kevin Green)

Ok, Colleen, you're ready to roll!

I'll leave this in the Launch Pad for a day or two to see if we can attract a DPL.

Have fun! :)

Colleen,

The names that you have in the Notes fields could go into the Title fields. That way they will be entered into the metadata in each individual file and show up on most mp3 players to be more informative to the listener. You don't need to, it's up to you, I just wanted to offer you an alternative. :) Anything in the Notes fields disappears upon cataloguing.

I thought about it, but decided to be consistent with Kevin's cataloging of the first volume.

I had already made up a table in a google doc to divide up the sections (aiming for a 3500-5000 word count per section but going above or below as needed to keep any one section from getting crazy long) and just moved the info from that over to the Notes section for my own reference and that of the eventual prooflistener(s) to give an idea of how long the sections are and where to find them in the text.

OK! Sounds good. Hopefully we'll get a proof-listener soon.
