POST IN THREAD - any ADMIN can edit this post and delete your post

This thread is for multi volume works which have some volumes catalogued already but are not complete and no one has put their hands up to complete.
If you are interested in either reading another volume as a Solo or starting a group project, just set it up in the new project Launch Pad and ask your MC to update the list. Some of the projects are very long and will need a high level of experience and commitment :D

And if there are some not listed please post here and they will be added.

I'm releasing the hold on The Book of a Thousand Nights and a Night Volume 9, if someone else wants to coordinate it. The MW is basically set up except for word counts.

I don't know if these books count, as the first volume hasn't been catalogued yet (and won't be for some time!).

I'm still recording the first volume in Henry Mayhew's "London Labour and the London Poor". It's quite a long work, but the language flows easily and there are lots of verbatim interviews with the street folk of London.

There are three more volumes still to be recorded:

EDIT: GillH has just taken up the challenge and is starting volume II as a solo.

Volume I viewtopic.php?f=12&t=62012

https://archive.org/details/londonlabourand03mayhgoog

Volume II viewtopic.php?f=12&t=70327

https://archive.org/details/londonlabourand00mayhgoog

Volume III
https://archive.org/details/londonlabourand01mayhgoog

Volumes I, II and III are subtitled: Street folk: street- sellers, buyers, finders, performers, artizans, and labourers.

***
Volume IV (Subtitled: Prostitutes, Thieves, Swindlers, and Beggars.)

I might be interested in BCing the next volume of The Book of a Thousand Nights and a Night. I see above that Volume 9 is already set up?

I think it's about half way through? I'll have a look and pull it out for you.

edit:
It's here: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=69302

still needs a lot of word counts filled in, but otherwise it's done.
Cheers,
Ava.

Excellent! I'd love to pick it up. Can I get access to the post, or should I launch a new post with the same MW?
