Stories from the History of Rome by Emily Beesly (book published 1886).


Mrs. Beesly wanted to give her children a history of Rome that wasn't boring. So, she wrote down the stories in a narrative form. This is the book we have today. ( Melissa Petermann)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/storiesfromhist01beesgoog/page/n6/mode/2up
  • 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!


    Magic Window:



    BC Admin ===========================================


    ============================================
  • 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!

    • "Chapter [number] of Stories from the History of Rome. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Stories from the History of Rome, by Emily Beesly. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Stories from the History of Rome by Emily Beesly. 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 Stories from the History of Rome, by Emily Beesly. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
  • Example filename storiesfromthehistoryofrome_##_beesly_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. storiesfromthehistoryofrome_01_beesly_128kb.mp3)

Whew! I got worried for a moment there because I thought I hadn't worked on it enough and you were closing it or something! LOL. Thanks for walking with me through this!
