This is a quote from Erasmus' first volume of colloquies

The Abbot and Learned Woman
A certain Abbot paying a Visit to a Lady, finds her reading Greek and Latin Authors

Ant. But it becomes Ladies to have something that is diverting, to pass away their leisure Hours.

Mag. Must none but Ladies be wise, and live pleasantly?

In old Times Princes and Emperors were as eminent for Learning as for their Governments: And after all, it is not so great a Rarity as you think it. There are both in Spain and Italy not a few Women, that are able to vye with the Men, and there are the Morites in England, and the Bilibald-duks and Blaureticks in Germany. So that unless you take Care of yourselves it will come to that Pass, that we shall be Divinity-Professors in the Schools, and preach in the Churches, and take Possession of your Mitres.

I would like to read the piece "Modern Burglar's Strange Evolution" which was in the "Notes and Abstracts" section of Journal of the American Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology, vol. 13.

It appears to be entirely quoted from somewhere else, and the last line credits "NY Times, October 2, 1922", however, I cannot find the original article. I've looked all through the NYT from that date with no luck, and googling exact sentences and phrases in quotes from the piece only turns up links to the Journal of the American Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology version.

So how would I title/author/credit this in my reading of it?

Here's a link to the article as I found it:

Hi ColleenMc,

Thank you for your interest in the NonFiction Collection. I think the best way for you to cite the short article on burglary would simply be:

Modern Burglar's Strange Evolution by Anonymous from the Journal of the American Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology, Vol. 13, November 1922.

Since the article was published prior to 1923, it should be in the public domain. The article is also available through Google Books here:

Hello,
I have recorded an essay about the Krakatoa volcano. I hope it is suitable for this thread.

This is such an addiction & I already have 2 other essays that I would love to contribute to this thread, providing this one passes. :thumbs:

Hi April, We're pleased that you are excited about recording for the NonFiction Collection, and your topic, the Krakatoa Sunsets sounds absolutely fascinating. What we need for you to do, however, is read something about the sunsets that is is strictly in the public domain.

What you have sent us today is an essay which combines quotes from historical public domain documents plus an introduction and interpretation written by Richard Hamblyn, a contemporary writer and historian born in 1965. https://richardhamblyn.wordpress.com/about/. The 1883 letters Hamblyn quotes are in the public domain, but his essay is not, and therefore we cannot use it for LibriVox.

Fortunately, Hamblyn provides a list of and links to the public domain works he consulted for his article at the end of his essay. Here you will find links to Gerard Manley Hopkins letters in the journal Nature. For example: http://archive.org/stream/nature2918831884lock#page/222/mode/2up

Any of Hopkins' letters, by itself, would be PD and thus meet LibriVox standards for public domain.

I hope this explains why we cannot accept the recording you just sent. I also hope that I have pointed you toward similar material that is in the public domain. If you have any questions, please feel free to post them. We would be delighted to see a reading about the sunsets in a volume of the Nonfiction Collection.

Regards,

Sue (Your book coordinator)

Thank you for the detailed message. I was wondering if the essay would be considered PD. It was enlightening to me.
I did look at the letters you had suggested and since those seem much more science based, I will pull back this particular thought.
I did just do a search for one of his books: "Terra: Tales of the Earth".
The synopsis of that did sound interesting though I can not seem to find it. Hmmm....
Thank you for the clear message, I do appreciate it.
April

Painting reflections is PLOK Sue.

Thanks. Reflections just seem to shimmer for me so I will leave them unpainted.

Thanks for the PL, Craig! I don't have the technical skill to paint reflections (wish I did); but I have been playing around with with my cell phone camera.

Hi April,

Glad to see you back, and also glad we can be sure what you've chosen this time is in the Public Domain! :) Yes, Alden's "An Unnecessary Invention" is ok to read. You can read it from Bartleby. I've also found an actual public domain source on archive. org, which is the source I'll use for the LibriVox catalog. https://archive.org/details/domesticexplosiv00alde, p. 146 ff. Interestingly, Alden's book of humorous essays (originally from the NY Times, according to the preface) went by several titles, The Comic Liar just being one of them. The title of the 1877 copy of the book in archive. org is titled "Domestic Explosives and Other Sixth Column Fancies!"

Your Krakatoa read it still on my mind. It's a shame to waste it; perhaps you could upload to archive.org? If you still don't think you want to read Hopkins' sunset descriptions in the journal Nature yourself, would you mind if I read one of them? I'm interested in painting, and his description of the sunset colors is most painterly!
