Sylvie and Bruno by Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898).


Sylvie and Bruno, first published in 1889, and its second volume Sylvie and Bruno Concluded published in 1893, form the last novel by Lewis Carroll published during his lifetime. Both volumes were illustrated by Harry Furniss.

The novel has two main plots: one set in the real world at the time the book was published (the Victorian era), the other in the fantasy world of Fairyland. While the latter plot is a fairy tale with many nonsense elements and poems, similar to Carroll's Alice books, the story set in Victorian Britain is a social novel, with its characters discussing various concepts and aspects of religion, society, philosophy and morality.

    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!

I can MC this for you. I own these books so this will be fun. :D

If you don't have a DPL lined up I'd be happy to do that as well. If you already had someone it's not a problem to swap us out.

First chapter is up.

A few things I would like your input on.

The images for this book are really important and in the narrative there are several references to the images at specific points. I have not included them, but am tempted to do so and ensure we supply a link to the images or even better, a downloadable file with the images in. Is this possible do you think.

I know we attached images to 'Alice in Wonderland'.

They are available through Wikimedia Commons and are out of copywrite etc.

I said we needed a chapter 0, but this is just a short poem. Should I include that at the start of chapter 1 instead do you think.

Sorry about the complications.

The poem is so short I think your adding it to the start of chapter 1 is a good decision.

Would you mind sending me the link to the Alice in Wonderland project you were referring to. I'd like to take a closer look at it. I'm sure we can do something about linking to the artwork.

It's been a long day. I'll PL for you over the weekend.

This is the link to Alice in Wonderland.
It includes a link to the images.

I'll amend chapter 1 to include the poem.

Sure we can do that. Unless you can find all the illustrations in a single site I can scan the ones I have and upload to IA (Internet Archive). I have the 1884 edition so it's PD. Let me know.

They are all on Wikipedia commons, but It would be best to get them into one file so they are easy to display in order.

When I read a book on the fourth dimension, I prepared a pdf file of all the illustrations to go with it. You can see how it was handled, on the catalogue page: https://librivox.org/the-fourth-dimension-by-charles-howard-hinton/

I've no idea how it was handled behind the scenes for cataloging, though.

That would be the best way to do it. I'll get them downloaded and ordered to a pdf file, ready for the end product.

Also answered another question. My intention is to do all Carroll's books and the maths ones I was struggling to work out how to illustrate. That is obviously the answer.

I love maths!

Chapter 2 uploaded.

I've added the poem to chapter 1.

Peter,
This was actually the project I was thinking about mimicking. I was your DPL. I'll figure out the behind the scenes. :thumbs:

Sounds great. It if turns into a project bigger than you anticipated just let me know. I can easily (and fairly quickly) scan the illustrations to pdf from the PD edition I own.
