King and Parliament (A.D. 1603-1714) by George Henry Wakeling (1859 - 1936).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/king-and-parliament-by-george-henry-wakeling/
This slim volume by the Oxford University lecturer, George Henry Wakeling, deals with the period in British history from the reign of King James I through the death of Queen Anne. The story begins with England, transformed by the Protestant Reformation and keen to confront Catholic Spain, but burdened by a monarch unequal to national ambitions. Wakeling portrays the subsequent battles for dominance between the contending Protestant sects and chronicles the struggle for sovereignty between the British Crown and the emerging power of Parliament. (Pamela Nagami)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/kingandparliame00wakegoog
  • 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!

You're set up.

If I may suggest, since the years are a kind of subtitle, I'd suggest using the full title ("King and Parliament (A.D. 1603-1714)") in the intro for the first file and the outro at the end of the book, but just using "King and Parliament" for the intros for sections 2-10. It's up to you, of course. :)

King and Parliament - I think that's an intersection in Toronto. :lol:

Chapter 3 is PL OK.

After the crash last autumn I've been more systematic about keeping PL notes in dedicated notebooks. You have your own one that I started partway through Gladstone and Queen Anne, and it's already halfway full. That's great, because you're reading lots! Keep going!
