Beacon Lights of History Volume 9: European Statesmen by John Lord (1810 - 1894).

This project is complete! All audio files are available on our catalog page:
https://librivox.org/beacon-lights-of-history-vol-9-european-statesmen-by-john-lord/

Continuing the Beacon Lights of History Series, Mr. Lord discusses important European Statesmen Mirabeau, Edmund Burke, Napoleon, Prince Metternich, Chateaubriand, George V, and Louis Philippe. Also discussed is the Greek Revolution. ( KHand)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10640
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard


    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

I'll be happy to MC (unless you already have someone?).

edit: OK, you're all set! (If you had another MC lined up, it's no problem to change!) I'll move this down to Solos in a day or two. Y'all have fun!
