Firstly, thank you for recording this very long chapter. I do have some notes, however:

9:

0:55: "which yet, the Schematic 4 Microscope" should be "which yet, with the Microscope". You don't read the side-notes.
4:57: "made upon the water by the Air Schematic 4, Figure 1 without the pipes" should be "made upon the water by the Air without the pipes"
21:50: The symbol ☿ is the alchemical symbol for mercury. As such, this should be "such, I suppose mercury, fermented vinous Spirits..."
48:15: I think this would be clearer if you read it as "F be 1/4 of an inch, G, 1/6, H, 1/8, I, 1/12, ..."
53:31: The ending silence is a little too long. You should be aiming for 5 seconds, and you've got over 6.2 seconds.

10:

It's too quiet. You should be aiming for 89 dB, and you're at 85.8 dB.
18:37: You're missing "and FI the height of the Mountain above the Superficies of the Sea" between "represent the Sea" and "FM a Cavern"
52:00: The ending silence is a little too long. You should be aiming for 5 seconds, and you've got over 6.1 seconds.

Just a couple of notes:

2:03: 'Rind' in "or distinction of Rind" should be pronounced to rhyme with kind.
7:19: Repetition of 'which'

Hi, guys!
I know you are all waiting for me... :( I will re-record that mispronounced phrase as soon as the cold lets go of my voice and I start sounding like myself again. Hopefully in two-three days.

PL OK!

And we are done! My first project as BC is finished! And it only took a year and a half...

I originally was going to do this as a solo project, but I was put off by the amount of Latin and archaic words, so massive thanks to adrien, alg1001, Availle, bhavya, deongines, DrPGould, JimCooper, johnb2, Kikisaulite, Kitty, lubee930, MajorHistory, mightyfelix, MorganScorpion, Nuria, pschempf, realisticspeakers, shelleturner, silverquill, Steve, ToddHW, TriciaG, and Visal for your recordings.

Ava, over to you to finish it up!

Now, what's next...
