The Memoirs of Chateaubriand Volume V by François-René de Chateaubriand (1768 - 1848). Translated by Alexander Teixeira de Mattos (1865 - 1921)


The memoirs of Chateaubriand continue in Volume 5, with the author, now a grand hommes des lettres, still in the thick of political events, telling his story with his trademark acerbity and melancholy, interspersed with extracts from his voluminous correspondence with the literary, intellectual and political stars of his age. ( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/55070
  • 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!

Be right back with a MW Nicole.
...One MW, I've shortened the filename, you only need single digits this time.
Let me know if you need anything else, hopefully we attract a DPL soon.
