The Egregious English by T. W. H. Crosland (c. 1865 - 1924).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-egregious-english-by-t-w-h-crosland/
This 1903 book is a tongue-in-cheek send-up of English people and subjects. Within the humor (or humour), the listener may be surprised by some diamond-hard observations. The listener is also alerted to some attitudes of a different time that would not be acceptable in today's polite discourse. Here writing as “Angus McNeil”, a Scotsman, Crosland was a British author, poet, and journalist (1865-1924) . ( David Wales)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/56453
  • 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!

Hi Dave, Have been recording these chapters. They turn out to be a lot shorter than I originally thought. So have decided to put two chapters in each file, to avoid so much repetition of our librivox disclaimer.

edit: So we don't need #12-21
Peace, David
