The Prime Minister by Anthony Trollope (1815-1882)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-prime-minister-by-anthony-trollope/
The Prine Minister is the fifth in Trollope's series of six Palliser novels. With Phineas' difficulties resolved, Trollope introduces new characters. A respectable young girl forsakes the man her family had always intended her to marry when she falls in love with a man of foreign extraction and an unknown family. He has a gentleman's education and manners, but his family background and financial means are mysterious. Is he really a gentleman? Meanwhile, Plantagenet Palliser becomes Prime Minister of a shaky coalition government, and Glencora and Madame Goessler are busy with the ensuing social obligations. (Summary by Karen Merline)

  1. How to claim a part:
    To find a section to record, simply look at the sections in the box below. All those without names beside them are available. Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you’d like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6 to 8 below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording?
    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline?
    Target completion date of this project: Date March 1, 2010,, but try to send your recordings as soon as you can. I will note the date you volunteer for a chapter, and if you haven't recorded or posted about the progress of your chapter(s) for a month at any time, I may put them back to the pool. This doesn't mean you have to record within a month of making a claim, just be sure to keep in touch to let me know how things are going. As reading progresses, after due warning, we may reassign your sections if your claim languishes! If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it’ll go back to the pool. There’s no shame in this; we’re all volunteers and things happen.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/2158
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter ## of The Prime Minister. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:

    End of recording

    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  8. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    (e.g. primeminister_01_trollope.mp3)

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/WhatIsID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use. If you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    Title: 01 - Ferdinand Lopez (## = reading no. = chapter no.!)
    Artist: Anthony Trollope

What does "dpr" mean? Is that about PL'ing? I see that you have a DPL. Just curious--I nearly PM'ed you about possibly PL'ing it, but I'll probably cut back on PL'ing anyway (although it'd be nice to have something to PL while I'm recovering from my procedure later this month). I was just wondering what "dpr" meant? I probably should know--sorry. Anyway, good luck with the book! I've never read this author; hope it all goes well.

Hi Joy - it was a typo, I meant DPL. Annise voluntered by pm which I opened early this morning. As you can see, this has been a work in progress up until now, and I just got around to removing the request from the title. Sorry! :)

Oh, OK; we all do stuff like that, especially me! LOL :D Sounds like you've got it all set up great! :) I might end up offering to read a chapter or two, but I'm going to wait until after my procedure (if there are chapters left then; if not, that's fine too--I'm trying to catch up with other recordings I've committed to, as well as PL'ing [which won't take much longer]).

Good luck & have fun! :)

Joy :D

Btw, probably since it is a continuation of a former project, there are 2 DPLs listed (Heart of Texas & Annise).

I got this ready in a hurry for several Trollope fans now finishing up the "prequel". There are 80 chapters, plenty for everyone - you are most welcome to read.
