Henry the Fifth by Alfred John Church (1829 - 1912).

A brief history of the life of Henry the Fifth. (KevinS)
    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!): https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/006065856

      Here is the pdf file downloaded from HathiTrust: https://drive.google.com/file/d/19H9Wsi2j8b-NAZCiQq6XuAg05Gp7Vks6/view?usp=sharing
    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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hello,

I'd like to participate in this project but I don't have a login that lets me download from HathiTrust. Kevin, can you or someone email me the PDF of the book?

Thanks!

Does this link to my Google My Drive not work for you? https://drive.google.com/file/d/19H9Wsi2j8b-NAZCiQq6XuAg05Gp7Vks6/view?usp=sharing

If not, I'll figure something else out.

I found the book on archive.org. Does this work for you? https://archive.org/details/dli.ernet.1688/page/n1/mode/2up

Yup...I just wanted to be sure it worked for you since the "script" of the initial post always says "only use this version"...

Kevin,

I PL'd section 17 for you.

3 corrections

1:53 should read "other accounts speak of a fistula and pleurisy", sounds like "or accounts speak of a fistula in pleurisy" although the "fistula in pleurisy" sounded better today
9:28 you have "last" should be "late king"
11:51 you have an extra syllable in "sepulchrum" in "sepulchrum modicum". sounds like "sepulchurum"


Other than that everything sounded good.

M
