Beacon Lights of History, Volume 14: The New Era by John Lord (1810 - 1894).
Volume 14 is a compilation of essays regarding accomplishments over the 50 years preceding the author's death in 1894. The editorial staff chose the people that they felt best exemplified Lord's criteria of being a historical force to represent the worlds of music, art, science and invention. Though not personally written by Lord, the book is attributed to him. ( KHand)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10649
  • 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!

MC Note: I copied the title from Vol 13 and inadvertantly failed to change it from "Great Writers" to "The New Era" before generating the code.

I've made all the updates in the first post, but I assume it'll need changed behind the scenes.

As before, craigdav1 will serve as my DPL.

Thanks!
