The American Book Of The Dog, by Various ( - ).
Quote:
(BC will modify description and keywords before cataloging) - Here is a period piece (publication date 1891), about the early days of dog breeding leading up to the Westminster Kennel Club's development of bench shows, the birth of the American Kennel Club (1884), which established breed standards. The book contains articles by various dog breed experts. It sheds light on how the breeds we know and love today were sculpted from the best traits of dogs of yesteryear, and the goals of the persons responsible. It sheds light on old dog training theory and methods of treating disease. Articles cover 46 breeds. In the preface, Shields called this book “the grandest work on the dog ever published, in this or any country”. Its various authors were part of the movement that was developing breed standards for field and show dogs, resulting in the Canadian and American Kennel Clubs from the various private clubs.

    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/americanbookofdo00shierich
    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: Michele will proof listen other readers, but requests a volunteer to proof listen her sections. Level of prooflistening requested: standard

All set. Note that I have edited the intro back to our standard format.

Please also explain what you mean by

Quote:
NOTE: The introduction will contain a slightly longer INTRO, read by Michele.


If this infers that you will be adding commentary abut the book that is not part of the printed text, we can't accept that. You can write whatever you like in the summary, but the recording needs to be just the LV intro and outro and the text as written.

Would you like me to put in the preclaim for the cover for you?

No, it's just the extended title as shown on the Title Page of the book, read just once along with the Preface and Introduction.

Yes, please put in the preclaim for me if you don't mind.

I've been looking at this because the title spurs my inner grammar nazi to action - something appeared to be missing... And indeed there is:

It's actually called "The American Book of THE Dog". Just in case you'd like to adjust the intro/outro.

My inner grammar Nazi, usually up and about, was snoozing. I did not see it at all. But the title grated on my nerves nonetheless. Thanks, Availle, for catching that so early in the game. I have made the changes. :thumbs:
