Charles the Bold, Last Duke of Burgundy by Ruth Putnam (1856 - 1931).

Charles the Bold was the last Duke of Burgundy of the House of Valois. Born in 1433, his dream was to be crowned king by declaring the territory of Burgundy an independent kingdom. He increased his land through purchase and conquest, leading to serious unrest throughout western Europe. His enmity with Rene II of Lorraine led to his early death in 1477. ( Lynne Thompson)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14496
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Section 00 (preface) is marked as PL OK in the MW. I do question, however, whether the dates 1433-1477 shouldn't be added at 20 seconds?

Hmmm... I could add them. I don’t want them read as part of the title, though (as in, repeated every section). Must admit, I didn’t even consider including them here.

Excellent reading Mark!
I would only ask you to delete the photo captions at 4:42, 20:48 and 23:36.

One other tiny thing at 7:03: by the court should be: by the count

I'm reading from an eBook with no illustrations. I assumed those were section headers. Not the case?
