Marie Antoinette and the Downfall of Royalty by Imbert de Saint-Amand (1834 - 1900) . Translated by Elizabeth G. Martin (1837 - ????).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/marie-antoinette-and-the-downfall-of-royalty-by-imbert-de-saint-amand/

Quote:
Paris in 1792 is no longer what it was in 1789. In 1789, the old French society was still brilliant. The past endured beside the present. Neither names nor escutcheons, neither liveries nor places at court, had been suppressed. The aristocracy and the Revolution lived face to face. (From the first chapter)

  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'd 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/32408
  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 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!

    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter [number] of Marie Antoinette and the Downfall of Royalty. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name]"

    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  8. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!
    Title: ## - [Section title]
    Artist: Imbert de Saint-Amand
    Album: Marie Antoinette and the Downfall of Royalty
    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

Yea, April! Another great project! May I please take Section 06? (Your Napolean went so quickly and beautifully that I never got to claim a section, so I'm jumping in here fast... :) )

I still haven't watched that anime, I've only encountered Romeo and Juliet, Violinist of Hameln and Little Women and the children's classics. I'll try it soon! :)

it's a good one... one of my all-time favourites :) and there is a bit of a love triangle between oscar, fersen and marie antoinette (which is why this reminds me...) - but the ending is sad, so don't watch if you want a happy ending... :)

Hi, sorry, but may I return that section to the pool :oops: Somehow the switching between French, German, Swedish names and stuff gets my tongue in a knot... I can't manage a single sentence without at least one mistake (sometimes more)... I have now recorded it twice and I am just not happy with it... and even if I do all the editing it would still only be a very bad recording... :evil:

(hope you find someone soon... it's quite an interesting read!)
