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.

Its been pointed out to me that we only have part 1 of this book
https://librivox.org/the-afghan-wars-1839-42-and-1878-80-part-1-by-archibald-forbes/
Part 2 is the 1878-80 war and is available here http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/8428 . not sure it is strictly multivolume, the reader just chose to only read half of 1 book but condidering the current Afghanistan situation , more of the history may be an interesting addition to the catalogue

I think that we only have series 1 of The Ingoldsby Legends by The Rev. Richard H. Barham. There are three series and they are sometimes published as each series one volume.
My occasional blog is Games from Folktales

Is there a source for these? I checked both Gutenberg and Google Books for "The Lectures of Col. R. G. Ingersoll" and could find only two volumes, one identified as "Volume I" and the other as "Latest" (which is what is listed as "Volume 2" in the LV catalog).

II think I see where the confusion lies. There are in fact only two numbered volumes there - and at Gutenberg and Google Books - under the title "The Lectures of Col. R. G. Ingersoll" (the title given in the OP). There is also one unnumbered volume titled "The Complete Lectures of Col. R. G. Ingersoll", and four volumes devoted to lectures in the 12-volume series titled "The Works of Robert G. Ingersoll". A quick glance at the contents of a few of these volumes shows that there is considerable overlap among them, and I don't know if there are any lectures in the lectures volumes of the "Works" series that don't appear in the "Lectures" series. I'll check that out when I have a little more time. But at this point I think it's possible that the two volumes in the LV catalog contain all the available lectures.

That would be good - maybe post it in the book suggestions if you don't want to read them yourself and I'll keep this thread for multi-volume works.

Anne
I did a bit of spelunking and decided that the two volumes already recorded at LV are in fact the only two volumes in the series "Lectures of Col. R.G. Ingersoll". Gutenberg.org has a number of lectures not included in these two volumes, but they aren't included under the same title, so it's probably fair to say that they don't fit the category of this post. I'll put together a full list, perhaps claim a few for myself, and post the rest in book suggestions.

However, there is a multi-volume Ingersoll work that is not completely recorded. This is the 12-volume "Works of Robert G. Ingersoll" published by the Dresden Publishing Company in 1902. We have only two of these in the LV catalog: Vol. 04 and Vol. 10. The remaining 10 volumes remain to be recorded:

Vol. 01, Lectures http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38801
Vol. 02, Lectures http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38802
Vol. 03, Lectures http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38803
Vol. 05, Discussions http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38805
Vol. 06, Discussions http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38806
Vol. 07, Discussions http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38807
Vol. 08, Interviews http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38808
Vol. 09, Political http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38809
Vol. 11, Miscellany http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38811
Vol. 12, Miscellany http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38812

(Of the "Lectures" volumes, Vol. 01 and Vol. 02 don't supply any new lectures not already recorded in the "Lectures of Col. R. G. Ingersoll", but Vol. 03 does have some new material.)

Memoirs of Napoleon Bonaparte by Louis Antoine Fauvelet de Bourrienne (1769-1834)
Volume 1 completed: https://librivox.org/memoirs-of-napoleon-vol-1-by-louis-antoine-fauvelet-de-bourrienne/
Volumes 2-16 to be done: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/author/1227?sort_order=title
(Note: the volume numbering is different in "Memoirs of Napoleon Bonaparte — Complete", being only 4 volumes.)
The first volume was 3.5 hours; I assume the others are of similar length.
