Criminal investigation: a Practical Handbook for Magistrates, Police Officers and Lawyers, Volume 3 by Hans Gross (1847 - 1915). Translated by John Adam (1849 - 1914) and and John Collyer Adam (1879-?)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/criminal-investigation-volume-3-by-hans-gross/
Reputedly inspired by the Sherlock Holmes stories, Austrian criminal jurist and an examining magistrate Hans Gross wrote the first handbook on criminal investigation. This treatise covers everything from the qualities of a good investigating officer and how to utilize various experts, to tactics employed by criminals, how to analyze footprints and blood stains, and ways that criminals perpetrate crimes. Some of the remarks relate directly to India, such as disguising one's caste.
Volume 3 (of 3) consists of Part 4 of the 4 parts in the work. - Summary by TriciaG
    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/criminalinvestig00grosuoft
    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: SPECIAL: standard, plus make sure readers record the right portion of text.


      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!

They're yours - thanks! (And remember at the end of 33 to do the end of book wording in the outro. ;))

Tricia,

In the second half of the introduction, after the disclaimer, it states Volume 2, instead of Volume 3.

Tricia, if this book is not under time constraint for the Aug 10 10k thing, I would like to claim sections 20 and 21, about document falsification. I just recently did interpreting for some people from the American Society of Questioned Document Examiners, and it was really interesting, so I think I would enjoy this.
Regards,

This one will certainly not be done by August 10, so you'll have the regular 2 months to get your sections done. I'll put you in - thanks! 8-)

I'll do section 5, Bodily Injuries and Poisoning vi-vii!

This whole book looks super interesting, by the way.
