The Rural Magazine and Literary Evening Fire-Side Vol 1 No 1 by Various ( - 0).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-rural-magazine-and-literary-evening-fire-side-vol-1-no-1-by-various/
This is the first issue of a monthly agricultural magazine for the year 1820. From the introduction: "A leading object of the Rural Magazine will be to furnish correct views of the science of Agriculture, and the various improvements which are daily made or suggested in it. For this purpose the best and most recent European works on the subject will be consulted, and selections made from the American newspapers that are devoted or friendly to the cause. The best information on the subject will thus be condensed in a form less unwieldy than a newspaper, and more popular than in scientific books. We also expect original papers from our agricultural friends, being confident that there is much in the farming of our neighbouring counties, well worthy of being widely known and imitated." ( Magazine Editors)
    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/46995
    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.

This is a monthly periodical with all 12 issues of Volume 1 in Gutenberg. I would like to complete the volume if there seems to be enough interest.

Weird that it has an index up front, and no table of contents, eh? Will you be dividing it by entries? If so, may I do Extension of Slavery?

Yeah, I know.
We're also not doing the list of members at the end.
I'll save that section for you.

I'll MC this.

You aren't going to put individual authors in the metadata for each section, correct? The few articles I saw didn't list an author - and most of these folks would be obscure anyway, I think, so we wouldn't need to have them individually searchable in the catalog.

Section 4!

What an apropos time stamp. :)

And I'll admit, this one did get me a little hot under the collar. Had to edit out a "you tell them!"
