A Study of British Genius - Revised and Enlarged by Havelock Ellis (1859 - 1939).


The psychological and anthropological character of genius in the British Isles was investigated by Ellis. Citing and collating an extensive source of information from the Dictionary of National Biography, many pieces of informational are discussed, including the ancestral heritage, geographical distribution, professions, and health and morbidity of the most the most preeminent men and women of the time. This work also promotes his theory that large cities are not only counterproductive to the development of high achievers, but detrimental to national health. ( Leon Harvey)

    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!

As it says very prominently in the text link and in the "notes" field on archive, this version was published in 1927 which makes it still copyrighted in the US and thus not useable for LibriVox at this point.

If you can find an earlier version, this is fine, otherwise you'd have to wait for 3 more years.
Cheers,
Ava.

Here is the first edition: https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000382572

I don't know if this would be of any interest to you, niobium.

actually i already have the first edition and was reading through it. as far as i can tell, the only differences are the preface and some extra chapters near the end, but there may also be a few changes to the text. Anyway, i thought it would be more appropriate to use the most recent version from the author, and if there are any changes, they can be picked up during proof listening

With some limited exceptions, the U.S. copyright laws limit the recording of materials to those published in 1924 and earlier.

It's more complex than that, of course, but this later edition is not yet in the public domain. That is why Availle recommended an earlier edition.

You'll need to read from a public domain edition. With "standard" PL, the proof listener is not required to follow the text as they PL. And in any event, it's not the PLer's job to catch changes between two editions, only to check that your reading of the source text meets the "standard" PL requirements.
