[ENGLISH: History] ": The French Revolution Vol II by Thomas Carlyle
Thomas Carlyle, the Scottish essayist, philosopher, and historian, wrote this three-volume work, first published in 1837 (with a revised edition in print by 1857), which charts the course of the French Revolution from 1789 to the height of the Reign of Terror (1793–94) and culminates in 1795. A massive undertaking which draws together a wide variety of sources, Carlyle's history—despite the unusual style in which it is written—is considered to be an authoritative account of the early course of the Revolution.

This project is looking for prooflisteners. A DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener) would be preferred, but until one is found, we need prooflistening for completed sections.

Please post in the project thread if you can help with proof-listening.

  • Are there any stumbles or repeats that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time.
  • Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading?
  • Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?)
  • Does the ending match the one specified in the first post of the project thread?
  • Are there 5 seconds of silence at the end of the file?
