Prohibition uploaded with corrected file name and first 2 PL Notes corrected. Third item is, I believe, correct as I have it. Two questions were asked, both intended to begin in the same format, Is it possible? Is it possible?: It makes no sense otherwise.
Is it possible that human nature stands on such slippery ground? It is possible that our civilization to-day rests upon the price of alcohol, and that, should the price be reduced, we would all go down together?

I will report the issue to Gutenberg.

Michele is correct. Here is a link to a scan of the page. It's on the bottom of p. 407.

As for some of the works mentioned in the text:
We have the English translation of Campanella's "City of the Sun" in the catalogue, as well as a bilingual Polish/English edition of Kochanowski's "Treny". Gallileo's "Dialogo Dei Massimi Sistemi" is currently being recorded. Chmielnicki's uprising was depicted in much detail in Sienkiewicz's novel "Ogniem i Mieczem", the English translation of which has also been recorded.
Come help us record The Deluge THE DELUGE IS BACK!

Thanks to the three of you, Craig, Michele, and knotyouraveragejo! :) Here we have Craig's careful PLing against a usually acceptable "secondary source" (Gutenberg), a reader, Michele's perceptive correction of Gutenberg, and Gutenberg's error proved by reference to an original source by knotyouraveragejo!

What better argument could there be for reading from ORIGINAL SOURCES! :!:

Thanks, Piotr! :D I see that the 17th century just managed to squeak in under 74 minutes! (Hurrah!). As to the "thud" <wipes sweat off the forehead>, we hope you have saved some energy for the 18th century! :wink:

Alas, sometimes even original typesetters make mistakes, that results in an obvious error needing correction. My motto: "every letter typed, every syllable spoken, is an opportunity to err." That we make so few errors is a miracle in this literary business. :D

Hi Chad, What an exciting first read for LibriVox! :) All the complications of building that tunnel give me the shivers, just to listen to them explained! You read very well, clear voice, nice pacing, and your file "passed" when I put it through our LibriVox file checking app "Checker." Hurrah!

I entered the title for your selection in the Magic Window (and for cataloging purposes) as "The Original Hudson Tunnel." I think it's ok the way you introduced your section, naming the book first "The Subways and Tunnels of New York: Methods and Costs," and then introducing Chapter 2; but it might be better in future, if it suits you, to start with the name of the chapter: thus "The Original Hudson Tunnel," Chapter 2 from "The Subways and Tunnels of New York: Methods and Costs." That way, if you want to read subsequent chapters, it would make it simpler.

Our dedicated proof listener, Soupy (Craig) will proof listen your recording next.

A great start with LibriVox! :)

Hello Sue,

Thank you so much for all of the great feedback! Your advice regarding the books title and better ways to introduce individual chapters was exactly the sort of valuable feedback I was hoping for.
I would enjoy reading another chapter from the same book if you would allow it.


Best Regards,




Chad Sawyer

Hi Chad, Another chapter from the same book would be great! Each reader is allowed to read two selections of their own choosing for each volume of the SNF. As long as the selections are nonfiction and in the public domain (and run less than 74 minutes recording time), there are no restrictions. :)
