1001 Questions and Answers on General History by Benjamin Hathaway (1822-1896).

A book for students of history to test their knowledge and to direct their studies. As the title tells us, this is a book of a great number of questions, with answers, regarding world history. (KevinS)

• This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/1001-questions-and-answers-on-general-history-by-benjamin-hathaway/



    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 would 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!): https://archive.org/details/1001questionsans01hath/page/n9
    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 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!

Hey! Thank you! (I wasn't sure about the author. This edition is revised and I didn't know who gets to claim the credit. But, yes, I think Benjamin did all the hardest work!)

The first person to give the correct total number of questions gets a prize. Please do not use new math, as this will give you the incorrect answer. And you'll need a protractor.
