The World’s Famous Orations, Vol. III: Great Britain - I
byWilliam Jennings Bryan (1860 - 1925) and Francis Whiting Halsey (1851 - 1919)
.

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/the-worlds-famous-orations-vol-iii-great-britain-i-by-william-jennings-bryan/
In 1906, William Jennings Bryan, himself a famous American orator, and Francis Whiting Halsey published a series of the most famous orations of all time. They are ordered by both geographic area and time period, ranging from Ancient Greece to their contemporary United States. The third, fourth, and fifth volumes of this collection concern British speakers. The speeches contained in this third volume are ordered chronologically. We begin in the year 710 AD with a speech on the Saints, and end this volume in 1777 with the realisation of the impossibility of regaining control over the American colonies. ( Carolin)
    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/worldsfamousorat1906brya
      If you find the text difficult to read, you can refer to this version: http://www.bartleby.com/268/3/ but the dpl must check against the scan. thank you!
    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.

John Milton - Plea for the Liberty of Unlicensed Printing

part 1
please read until
The Christian faith, for that was once a schism, is not unknown to have spread all over Asia, ere any Gospel or Epistle was seen in writing. If the amendment of manners be aimed at, look into Italy and Spain, whether those places be one scruple the better, the honester, the wiser, the chaster, since all the inquisitional rigor that hath been executed upon books.

part 2
please start at
Another reason, whereby to make it plain that this order will miss the end it seeks, consider by the quality which ought to be in every licenser. It can not be denied but that he who is made judge to sit upon the birth or death of books, whether they may be wafted into this world or not, had need to be a man above the common measure, both studious, learned, and judicious; there may be else no mean mistakes in the censure of what is passable or not, which is also no mean injury.

Hi Carolin ( and Welcome Gordon!),
The PL for Section 1 is complete. It is PL OK. Could you please change the Section 1 Line Item in the MW to PL OK for me as I do not have MW access for this project.

:thumbs:

Betsy

Hi gordon, i noticed the discrepancy between the length of the recording and the word count, and it turns out you are missing the first two pages of the oration. Could you please have a look at this and see if you can add those? Thank you! :)
