Scilly and its legends. by Henry James Whitfeld ( - 0).


A travel journal to the Scilly Islands written in the Nineteenth Century. It records Scillonian legends and folklore. There's a brief diversion into period racism for a paragraph at the start of Section 17. ( Timothy Ferguson)

In verifying the author in the database, I notice his last name is Whitfeld, not Whitfield. FYI. :)

Timothy,

Tricia is correct, the author's name is Whitfeld. I had noticed that earlier, but hadn't gotten back to fix it. Please note that I've updated the top post to reflect this in the intros and outros as well as the filenames.

Hi Timothy, I'd be glad to PL, if you need someone. Nice hand-colored title page for this small volume!

Hi Sue,

Timothy hasn't stopped back since he posted this thread, so I will go ahead and add you as DPL and move the thread to Going Solo.

Thanks!

Hi Sue! Thanks for DPLing.

Sorry about the delay - my recording area is not air conditioned and Australia is having a heat wave at the moment, so it's an oven in there.

In my last post I wished for snow, and got night storms instead, which made recording in my tin-roofed garage difficult, but here is a start. There are a flurry of little chapters at the beginning.

Hi Timothy, Glad to see you've been able to start on your recording; I didn't detect any sounds of rain on the roof. Preface is PL Ok. :) All is good and well with Chs. 1 & 2, except for two tiny mis-reads:

Ch. 1, page 1 of text, at 1:01, text reads "and a blanket below." You said "and a sheet below."

Ch. 2, page 8 of text, at 4:43, text reads "It was the back fin of a shark." It sounded to me as if you read "It was the black fin of a shark."

This is enjoyable listen; I'm a fan of old travel books!
