I've left the title open for the present until I, or preferably you, can come up with something descriptive but a bit shorter...
Maybe "The struggle between the Teutonic Order and Poland continues"? This of course ignores the Scandinavia and Russia-related parts of the section...
Could we put a "final date" on the struggle? --for didactic purposes only of course. Prutz seems to put the date of the Order's downfall as 1466. If the title in the MW does not suit you, just let me know.

I guess you can put "until 1466" in the title, but that's not the end of the Poland-Order wars, the way I remember it from school, although I haven't yet checked if Prutz talks about the later period. If I recall correctly, the last war between the two came in 1520.

EDIT: And here's a map of the area we're talking about (with both German and current, Polish, placenames) https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b2/Teutonic_Order_1466.png

H Piotr, Thank you very much for the added info and map! :) I've added the qualifying words "until 1466" to the title. I'm of the opinion that reference dates add useful content to the LibriVox catalog.

Thanks for the two readings that fit the time Chad.

Plague In Ireland was PLOk

Many errors in the second very good sermon.

8:54 as Jacob did according to his light—‘And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good.’ – a little repetition

9:05 set ourselves more calmly to face the worst - a little repetition

9:47 but they give no comfort; a little repetition

10:13 poor slave clinging to his stern master’s arm, - a little repetition

10:30 but you have no words to pray with only sighs, and tears, and groans; - a little more repetition

12:07 with the still small voice which cannot be mistaken - a little stumble

12:47 you have not yet learnt perfect the lesson of his great love to you. Repetition

13:20 There are plenty of answers for them ready written: - several stumbles

14:30 and so making some devil’s attempt to ruin us only a great means of our improvement. Repetition

15:07 because his will is already that we should be saved; - stumbles

15:38 And, my friends, if you be in trouble, - repetition

16:21 And if he was heard in that he feared, repetition

16:53 to look up to heaven, and say, At least there is one who has been through all this. – stumble and repletion

17:15 it sounded like you turned pages

18:21 hand of him whose very being and substance is love, some repetition

19:00 and it will exalt us in due time. - short pause and then repetition

19:14 and his mercy is over all his works. – stumble and some repetition

Craig

How is the COVID going in Ireland?

Thank you, Kevin, for your contribution to volume 073! :) Here are a few comments gleaned from Wikipedia about Pan-Turanism and about Lothrop Stoddard.

Pan-Turanism "is a nationalist cultural and political movement born in the 19th century...[which] proclaimed the need for close cooperation between or an alliance with culturally, linguistically or ethnically related peoples of Inner and Central Asian origin... The political ideology originated in the work of the Finnish nationalist and linguist Matthias Alexander Castren..."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turanism

Lothrop Stoddard (1883 - 1950) "was an American historian, journalist, and political scientist. Stoddard wrote several books which advocated eugenics and scientific racism, including The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy (1920). He advocated a racial hierarchy which needed to be preserved through anti-miscegenation laws."

Here's "The Ideal House" by Robert Louis Stevenson, found in his Essays of Travel (chapter 7, page 199): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/627.

13:54

Stevenson lived briefly in my town, Monterey, California, where the house tour is well worth taking--though he lived in so many places, there's probably great competition on that front.

Hi Paul, Welcome to the Nonfiction Collection! :) There's much to be commended in R. L. Stevenson's vision of the ideal landscape and house. I'm certainly in agreement with him on this point: "Husband and wife must each possess a studio..."

The Nonfiction Collection has a dedicated proof listener (DPL), Soupy (Craig), and he will PL your selection for you.

That ideal house sounds like a good place to spend some time in isolation Paul.

Thanks PLOK :thumbs:

So true! Maybe a theme for a new collection: works written in confinement. Too bad The Diving Bell and the Butterfly isn't PD--written entirely by the paralyzed author by blinking his left eyelid while the alphabet was recited.

Hi Chad, Thank you for your continuing interest in LibriVox and in recording for the Nonfiction Collection. However, as I have explained to you previously, by PM and publically in the thread, the Nonfiction Collection has some published rules, which, as Book Coordinator, I ask that everyone follow. Among these rules are: 1) only two submissions per reader per volume; 2) quick response by readers to requested edits by the dedicated proof listener. I have pointed out these rules to you before, repeatedly, both by PM and in the threads for past volumes, including volume 072. It is also my policy not to accept a further reading from a participant who has not done the edits on their previous contribution.

During the course of volume 072, I had to remind you repeatedly by PM to follow up with edits on your selections; you are repeating this pattern of negligence in volume 073. Here is (in abbreviated form) what I wrote in the thread for volume 072:

Hello,
Here are chapters 5-7 of Thomas Andrews Shipbuilder by Shan F. Bullock (1865-1935).
URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/32166/32166-h/32166-h.htm

Hi Chad,

Thank you for your continuing interest in the Short Nonfiction Collection. Before I can accept a second contribution from you, I must request that you complete the edits and volume correction on your selection by Chesterton, "Child Psychology and Nonsense" which you sent to us on December 30, 2019. As you know from my three PMs to you and your PM to me, you are aware that our dedicated proof listener asked for corrections on January 1, 2020 and that there was a 2-week deadline for edits. Since you still have not made these corrections, the selection has been removed from Vol. 072. It can be re-instated when the corrections have been completed.

.....

Also the Andrews selection did not pass Checker. [The volume falls outside of the target range (86–92 dB).] This is the same problem Craig pointed out to you with regard to Chesterton.

In conclusion, please finish Chesterton before going on to anything new.
You did, finally, finish Chesterton.... But now you are repeating the same pattern in your selections for Volume 073.


Chad, I cannot accept a third selection from you for Volume 073; please hold it until a subsequent volume. Also, please be sure that when you do resubmit the Asthma selection it passes Checker. As submitted, it does not.

Chad, Unless you have successfully completed all the edits that Craig requested for your selection "Dark Times" submitted to Volume 073 within the 2-week time frame specified in the rules, it will be postponed to a later volume. The deadline for these successful edits is April 9.

It is imperative that all contributors to SNF follow their submissions through the editing process by reading the SNF thread. I am sending you one last PM asking you to read the SNF thread. If there is a need for subsequent communication, it will be soley in the thread.

Sue Anderson, Book Coordinator
