Mrs. Piozzi's Thraliana by Charles Hughes (1851 - pre1925).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/mrs-piozzis-thraliana-by-charles-hughes/

" It is many years since Dr. Samuel Johnson advised me to get a little book, and write in it all the Anecdotes which might come to my knowledge, all the Observations which I might make or hear, all the verses never likely to be published and in fine everything which struck me at the time. Mr. Thrale has now treated me with a Repository, and provided it with the pompous title "Thraliana." I must endeavour to fill it with nonsense, new and old."

Selections from the intimate record of her life from 1776 to 1809 by the hostess and friend of Dr Johnson (and the friend of his friends) selected and edited with commentary by Charles Hughes. ( barbara2)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/stream/mrspiozzisthrali00hughrich#page/n0/mode/2up
  • 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!

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

You haven't posted in this project in 5 months, but you're active in the forums. I assume you're still going to do this project?

Oh yes! Sorry Tricia, I got held up. My plan at the moment is to begin this project in July. Should have posted in the forum :oops:

Pam and Tricia,

I have several sections to go to wrap up my other project. I estimate beginning Thraliana at the end of the month.

Best,

Barbara

Hi Barbara,

This is absolutely delightful. I only wish it were longer!

One note because it impacts the meaning:

At 04:41, regarding the volumes of "Thraliana," the word "each" omitted from "Thraliana each containing from 250-300 pages"

My best,

Pam
