  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015002520602&view=1up&seq=4
  • 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!

    • If you wish, say:

I'm sorry - but translations have their own copyright and your link says
First Published: in Paris and Brussels, 1847
Translated: from the French by the Institute of Marxism Leninism, 1955;
Online Version: mea 1993; Marx/Engels Internet Archive (marxists.org) 1999;
Transcribed: Zodiac;
Proofed: and corrected by Matthew Carmody, 2009;
So unless you can find on online translation dated 1924 or earlier we can't host it.

Google books do have one
https://books.google.com.au/books/about/The_Poverty_of_Philosophy.html?id=4vDwRLJNXwsC&redir_esc=y
but it's only available on limited search for me - it may be able to be read in the USA though.

While you are waiting to see if someone else can find a PD text you could check out your welcome email at the minimum do the 1 minute test - we need to conform to the technical needs or Archive for our recordings to be hosted and it is much easier for you and everyone else if you need to resubmit less than 1 minutes recording than for you to submit a whole chapter that is rejected.

I don't see a copyright date on this Archive version.

No copyright date - wouldn't trust it.

HathiTrust has a couple editions, from 1910, 1913, and 1920: https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Search/Home?type%5B%5D=title&lookfor%5B%5D=poverty%20of%20philosophy&page=1&pagesize=20&ft=ft

Sorry, I didn't realize that a specific translation would be under a different copy right from the original, I will remember that in the future.
I have posted a one minute test and looked over the three which TriciaG has linked to.
Since the 1920 publication is the most recent I am leaning towards this edition if it's in public domain, although I'm open to suggestions of course.

Thank you for your help!

The text link is now updated to a public domain version, published 1920.

I'll set this up for you. I just OK'd your test, too. :)

As you're the soloist, you're in charge of updating the Magic Window.

Detailed Instructions for accessing the Magic Window can be found in the document linked here: Instructions for Soloists

Video showing how to use the Magic Window (read the above document first - it has the information on how to log in for the first time, which this does not have):
Magic Windows / Section Compiler: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOP4tcr1kl8

I'll put in the first two section titles for you as an example. You can change it as desired and fill in the rest.

When you upload a chapter, put the file duration (mm:ss) in the Notes field and the uploaded URL into the Listen URL field, and mark it from Assigned to Ready for PL.

Thanks for being a DPL Cadastra.

I had a question about grouping the intro and both prefaces together.

The recording times are as follows:
Intro 7:26
Preface 35:00
Authors Preface 1:45

I was wondering if all of these should be combined in the same file under introduction or should they be split up into their own sections?

It's up to you. :)

If it were my project, I'd either combine them all into one section, or leave the introduction as one section and put the two prefaces into a second section.

Ah! I see you put the sections into the Magic Window. It's a good thing to post when you do, so your DPL gets a heads up. :)

Moving this thread to Going Solo!

I check my PL page multiple times a day, so there is no need to post. (However, you SHOULD post for other DPLs, as not all DPLs check their PL page.)

Chapter 1 Section 2 is up.
Also, I realized that I didn't mention the translators name in the intro.
I will be uploading the edited version at some point.
