Pyrrhus by Jacob Abbott (1803 - 1879).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/pyrrhus-by-jacob-abbott/
This history concerns Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, BC 336-321. Pyrrhus was a world renowned soldier, leader, and conqueror of Macedon and Italy, from whom the term Pyrrhic victory was taken. (Deon Gines)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/27240
  • 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!

    Genre: Historical Fiction

    Key Words: Pyrrhus Macedonia Epirus
