Casey At The Bat is PL OK. Thanks for this rendition!

The Hobby Rider is fine, and an interesting story, except that the volume is 93.8. Please de amplify by -3 or -4 db. and re-upload. Thanks.

I've uploaded this story, and will need a volunteer to PL it for me.

I just listened to "Coursing the Prongbuck" and it's PL OK! Nicely read, though I do feel sorry for the poor antelope (or antelope-like creatures)

Ah, thanks, Colleen. :D
And I was thinking the same thing, and also that with the advent of today's meat displays in every grocery store, the meaning of "putting meat on the table" has certainly changed. :shock:

Hello,
I would like to read chapter 1 of The Theory of Sound, Volume 1. https://archive.org/details/ost-physics-the_theory_of_sound/page/n19/mode/2up
I am planning on incorporating some generated pitches and sine waves to help illustrate some of the concepts in the book

This does not look like it fits the hobby theme to me, more suitable for a science collection or our non-fiction collection.

I found an excerpt on illuminated manuscripts from The Decorative Illustration of Books from 1904. Could this be a part of the Hobbies series?

I haven't seen the text. but if someone pursued it as a hobby, then why not?

Here is my contribution regarding the art of illumination.

It is an excerpt from a chapter "Evolution of the Illustrative and Decorative Impulse From the Earliest Times", from The Decorative Illustration of Books Old and New by Walter Crane. Year: 1904.

Length: 15:41

It's a long chapter, but I started my excerpt right above an illustration that says "German School" in which is depicted Adam and Eve being expulsed from the Garden of Eden.

I did one more to see if we can finish this one out:

The Choice of a Boat by A.J. Kenealy (1854-1924?)


https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/cbc28_choiceofaboat_cm_128kb.mp3

8:36

Source: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/55846

Note: The possible death date was from a wiki genealogy site and had a ? after, and I couldn't find an obit or grave site to confirm it, but I did find a mention of Kenealy in a newspaper article from 1928, which refers to him "ending his days" so I'm assuming he was deceased by that point. I wasn't sure how you want to handle it, go with the 1924 date or just use a ? by itself or what.

The death date isn’t essential... it is important where the date of death determines whether it is PD (in most countries, but not the US). That said, we can assume if the birth date of 1854 is correct, IP he has been dead a while 🤔
