The Story of the French Revolution by Ernest Belfort Bax (1854 - 1926).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-story-of-the-french-revolution-by-ernest-belfort-bax/
Preface Excerpt: "The following sketch of the course of the French Revolution was originally published during 1889 in serial form in "Justice," the weekly organ of the Social Democratic Federation. It has been revised, corrected, and, in some parts, added to, for the present re-issue. It need scarcely be said that it in no way pretends to be a complete history of the great political, social, and intellectual movement it describes. The present volume is designed primarily as a guide to those who, not having the time to study larger works on the subject, yet wish during these centennial years to have in a small compass a connected description of the main events of the French Revolution, more especially from the point of view of modern Socialism." ( Celine Major)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/storyoffrenchrev00baxe
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

Celine,

I can MC this for you.

MW is setup and started.

I made a few minor changes to the first pot including shortening the filename, feel free to adjust it if you can think of a better one.

Since you already have a DPL, I am moving this over to "Going Solo".

Have a great evening!!!
