The Boys' and Girls' Pliny Vol. 4 by Pliny the Elder (23 - 79) and others.


The Natural History of Pliny the Elder is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman Empire. The full work consists of 37 books, covering more than 20.000 topics ranging from astronomy and mathematics to botany and precious stones. The book became a model for later encyclopaedias and gives a fascinating overview of the state of scientific knowledge almost 2000 years ago. This version of the Natural History (or, the "Pliny") has been adapted for a younger audience. This third volume contains Book VII (The Natural History of Birds) and Book VIII (The Various Kinds of Insects) out of a total of 9 books. ( Foon)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/58589
  • 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!

Thank you Anne!
I'm excited to get started on the next volume! I sneakily recorded some sections a while ago already when the Internet Archive was down, I couldn't access LV to find texts for my claimed sections, and all I could think of to record in my quiet time was this book which I already had on my computer! :mrgreen:

Still gotta edit though, I left that for future me :roll: :lol:
