A Course of Lectures on the Principles of Domestic Economy and Cookery by Juliet Corson (1841 - 1897).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/a-course-of-lectures-on-the-principles-of-domestic-economy-and-cookery-by-juliet-corson/
"This course of lectures is designed to meet the wants of two classes of persons:
First—Those who are experienced housekeepers, familiar with the principles and practice of cookery, but who desire information concerning the preparation of the finer dishes of the modern school.
Second—The young ladies in attendance at the University and others like them, who have had their time and attention so engrossed with studies and other duties that they have not had the opportunity to qualify themselves in this most important branch of a woman’s education." ( From the Introduction)
    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/35567
    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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

Section 0
I’m not sure if the first line of the intro is what Carolin intended.
‘"Lecture [number] of A Course of Lectures on the Principles of Domestic Economy and Cookery.’
I hear ‘Section 0 of A Course of Lectures on the Principles of Domestic Economy and Cookery.’

Carolin, is that ok or should it be ‘Preface and Introduction of A Course of Lectures on the Principles of Domestic Economy and Cookery.’? Also, did you intend for the Bill of Fare for The Housekeeper’s Course and the University Course to be omitted?

Other than this possibility, section 0 is PL OK.

Section 12
The book ending is missing.
"End of A Course of Lectures on the Principles of Domestic Economy and Cookery, by Juliet Corson."

I think I agree with this suggestion - I don't know why I went with "Section 0", because that doesn't make any sense to me... :?


Also, did you intend for the Bill of Fare for The Housekeeper’s Course and the University Course to be omitted?
I didn't read it because to me it seemed like essentially a convoluted form of the table of contents. But entirely up to Carolin!
