The Great Events by Famous Historians, Volume 1 edited by Charles F. Horne (1870 - 1942), Rossiter Johnson (1830-1941) and John Rudd (?-?).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-great-events-by-famous-historians-volume-1-by-charles-f-horne/


A comprehensive and readable account of the world's history, emphasizing the more important events, and presenting these as complete narratives in the master-words of the most eminent historians. This is volume 1 of 22. ( Title Page)
    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!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/16352
    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!

      Please do NOT read the footnotes! Pretty please, and thank you!

Sections 16 and 17 are yours, and I will put your claim in as soon as I finish setting up the project. I thought I would be done last night, but I just could not finish it. I was so sleepy! Thanks Larry! I love it when you claim as quickly as you do!

I would like to read the introduction, please.

And the outline narrative, if I may.

I think I shall claim section 3 as well. This is really gold.

Should the intro read "Section", rather than "Chapter"?

Section 3 is yours as well! And, yes, please say "Section" instead of Chapter. I knew I forgot to change something, and I will do that right now! Thank you!
