Librivox recently finished Vol 1 of this series. Here is my template for Vol 2. I hope there is a MC out there willing to give this daunting, yet fascinating book a go. The only problem I forsee is with the appendices. They are mostly original documents and require reading in Spanish and Latin. Let me know if there is any problem with how I filled this template out. Thanks..!!

A History of the Inquisition of Spain, Volume 2 by Henry Charles Lea (September 19, 1825 - October 24, 1909).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/history-of-the-inquisition-of-spain-vol-2-by-henry-charles-lea/
Volume 2 of Lea’s monumental work on the Spanish Inquisition. Volume 2 discusses the organizational structure of the Inquisition, methods used to financially support the Inquisition, methods used by the Inquisition to expose heresy, and numerous other topics. (Summary by JoeD)
  1. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are “up for grabs.” 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?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. 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. The target completion date for this project is 01 June 2011.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://libro.uca.edu/lea2/lea2.htm
  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.

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: Standard.

    MAGIC WINDOW:

    (BC admin)
  6. BEFORE recording:
    Please check the Recording Notes:
    http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    Set your recording software to:

    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording!

    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Book [#] Chapter [#] Part [#] of The History of the Inquisition of Spain, Volume 2. - 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:
      "Recording by [your name]"
    • Say:
      "The History of the Inquisition of Spain, Volume 2, by Henry Charles Lea. Book [#] Chapter [#] Part [#]"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of Book [#] Chapter [#] Part [#]"
    • 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 The History of the Inquisition of Spain, Volume 2, by Henry Charles Lea."

    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!
    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.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    inquisitionofspain2_##_lea.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. inquisitionofspain2_01_lea.mp3)

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    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: ## - [Section title]
    Artist: Henry Charles Lea
    Album: The History of the Inquisition of Spain, Vol 2
    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

    Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

Any questions?
Please post below or PM me. :)

I'll MC, but you'll need to fill out:

- the intro/outro section completely (and do you really want them to say "chapter [number]" or do you want "Book [#], Chapter [#], Part [#]?)

- The file naming scheme

- The ID tag information

- Type of proof listening requested

Thanks! :wink:

It's up to you if you want to include the appendices. They're not required, but on the other hand, they'd probably get read if you advertise specifically for Spanish or Latin readers for them, and be sure to note that they need such in the MW.

Hmmm. Because of LIBRO's copyright notice here: http://libro.uca.edu/copyright.htm

I'm hesitant to use that text source, although it's a nice, clean one. Would you be willing to use this instead?

http://www.archive.org/details/historyofinquisispain02leah

You could probably spot check to make sure the text is identical, then copy the text from the libro page into Google documents. But with that copyright notice, I'm hesitant to use their link in the final catalog page.

Tricia, thanks for picking this up..!! I think I have the template filled out properly now.

Great! The only other concern is the copyright on the web site.

Tricia, I have read volumes 1 and 2 in their entirety from the pdf book that I downloaded from archive.org. Also, Librivox used the same Library of Iberian Resources website for volume 1, so I read from it and thus became very familiar with both versions of the text. As near as I can tell, they are absolutely identical. I have not found a single deviation - not even so much as a scan error. Further, the page numbers listed on the Iberian Resources site corellate exactly with the archive.org pdf book - at least on every page that I have checked. In addition, the title is listed in the contents of the Library of Iberian Resources as 'Original edition, Macmillan, 1906-07' (http://libro.uca.edu/title.htm), which is the open source version found on archive.org. The disclaimer is correct though, since it appears that everything else in the contents is probably still under copyright.

With all that, I am fully confident that the version on the Library of Iberian Resources is open source.

Okay. Thanks for the thorough checking. :)

Hey, Joe? I can't get to the documents you've got linked. It says I don't have permission.

YIKES!! No kidding?? Thanks for letting me know. I will try and figure it out. Sorry it is taking me so long - I am a little busy and am just doing a few at a time in my copious spare time.

Tricia, I have been banging around with this for the last hour, and I cannot figure this out. I am a little stumped here. Some of the sections can open, others cannot, and I cannot figure out what the difference between them is in the google docs settings. I will keep messing with it - but if you or anyone else has any ideas, I would appreciate it.

Are you publishing them as a web page?

I notice that your links have a "pub" in them, while mine have a "view" in them, like this one: http://docs.google.com/View?id=dc8s49dq_214dsftdjgn

Other than that, I don't know. If you can't figure it out, perhaps post over in the Need Help? section.

Hi, Joe and Tricia

I managed to open all documents I tried (all from 1 to 10 and some others throughout the work), so I think the problem, whatever it was, is gone.

Also, I'd like to offer to read the appendix in Latin.

Come read about flowers and plants in Pliny's Natural History! :D

I can, too. Whew!

I'm going to move us over to Readers Wanted then, since it looks like we're all set!

Thanks for your help, Leni. The Latin section is all yours.
