The Arabian Nights Entertainments - Volume IV by Anonymous. Translated by Jonathan Scott (1754 - 1829)

The fourth and final volume of Middle Eastern tales, originally written in Arabic. Scheherazade tries to prolong her husband's interest in her - and therefore her life - by telling her tales in installments. (Gillian Hendrie)
    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!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/5667

Dear MC,
I messed up the name of the translator in the database. It didn't auto populate and I misspelled Jonathan. :oops:

Section Breakdown
Note: If you are claiming all sections for a story feel free to split the sections differently. Be sure to post your preferred start/stop for your DPL.

1-3 The Story of the Enchanted Horse, part 3 – 4696 words – Read from: The next morning, a little before day-break, when all the attendants were asleep, they went upon the terrace of the palace.

4-8 The Story of Prince Ahmed, and the Fairy Perie Banou, part 1 – 4079 words - Read through: He satisfied his curiosity, and when the caravan took its departure, the prince joined the former party of merchants his friends, and arrived happily without any accident or trouble, further than the length of the journey and fatigue of travelling, at the place of rendezvous, where he found prince Houssain, and both waited for prince Ahmed.
5-The Story of Prince Ahmed, and the Fairy Perie Banou, part 2 – 3343 words – Read from: Prince Ahmed took the road of Samarcand, and the day after his arrival, went, as his brothers had done, into the bezestein; where he had not walked long before he heard a crier, who had an artificial apple in his hand, cry it at five-and-thirty purses.
Read through: He went so far, that at last he began to think his labour was in vain; yet he could not help proceeding till he came to some steep craggy rocks, which would have obliged him to return, had he been ever so desirous to continue his course.
6-The Story of Prince Ahmed, and the Fairy Perie Banou, part 3 – 4620 words - Read from: As he approached these rocks, he perceived an arrow, which he took up, looked earnestly at it, and was in the greatest astonishment to find it was the same he had shot. Read through: Pay him one to-morrow, and after that, go and visit once a month, without speaking to me, or waiting for my permission. I readily consent to such an arrangement."
7-The Story of Prince Ahmed, and the Fairy Perie Banou, part 4 – 3987 words - Read from: Prince Ahmed went the next morning with the same attendants as before, but much more magnificently mounted, equipped, and dressed, and was received by the sultan with the same joy and satisfaction. For several months he constantly paid him visits, and always in a richer and more brilliant equipage.
Read through: When the sorceress had finished her speech, the sultan asked his favourites if they had any thing better to propose; and finding them all silent, determined to follow her advice, as the most reasonable and most agreeable to his mild manner of government.
8-The Story of Prince Ahmed, and the Fairy Perie Banou, part 5 – 5166 words – Read from: The next day when the prince came into his father's presence, who was talking with his favourites, and had sat down by him, after a conversation on different subjects, the sultan, addressing himself to prince Ahmed, said, "Son, when you came and dispelled those clouds of melancholy which your long absence had brought upon me, you made the place you had chosen for your retreat a mastery.

I'd like to claim "1" the story of the enchanted horse. I listened to some finished recording from here; and read the guidelines, but this is my first time recording.

Hello Helena,
Welcome to LV! Before you record here please complete the preliminary test. https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording#Preliminary_Test This will ensure all of your settings are correct prior to recording a larger section. Unless you have recording experience we suggest you begin with something in short works until you are comfortable with the editing process. 3800 words is going to run around 30 minutes of finished audio. Editing time can take you 4 times that much of time.

To get you set up I will need to know what name you want to have in the catalog. Let me know and I'll get you all signed up. :thumbs:
