The Gentleman and Lady's Book of Politeness and Propriety of Deportment by Elisabeth Celnart (1796 - 1865) .
A mid-nineteenth century book of etiquette. (Summary by Libby Gohn)
This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-gentleman-and-ladys-book-of-politeness-and-propriety-of-deportment-by-elizabeth-celnart/
  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. 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.
    Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/40901
  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.

    • "Part [number] Chapter [number] of The Gentleman and Lady's Book of Politeness and Propriety of Deportment. - 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 Gentleman and Lady's Book of Politeness and Propriety of Deportment , by Elisabeth Celnart . [Part title] [Chapter title]"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Part] [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 The Gentleman and Lady's Book of Politeness and Propriety of Deportment, by Elisabeth Celnart . "

    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
    bookofpoliteness_##_celnart.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. bookofpoliteness_01_celnart.mp3)

    (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: Elisabeth Celnart

Yes, thank you! I thought that, with the Downton Abbey craze, it would be fun to read like the refined Dowager Countess.

Ok, I have an odd request:
Can I take the two shortest sections, one to read in RP English, one to read in my harsh common Wrexham Accent? I think I want to make a statement :D

Please could I read section 14, Additional Rules in Respect to the Social Relations?
I particularly love the bit about lending and asking to borrow books :)
It's the end of term, so I am back! Thank you for being patient with me, and please PM if I don't seem to have caught an update that I should have seen.
