Builders of United Italy by Rupert S. Holland (1878 - 1952).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/builders-of-united-italy-by-rupert-s-holland/
Holland provides us with an engaging history of the Unification ("Risorgimento") of Italy by exploring the lives of some of its most important figures: Alfieri, Manzoni, Gioberti, Manin, Mazzini, Cavour, Garibaldi, and Victor Emmanuel. ( Ciufi Galeazzi)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/43607
  • 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!

Let me know if any changes are needed.

Kevin, This is not PD in death+70 countries. I assume that's not an issue.

Enjoy.

Well, here we go! Section 1, which is more or less the first half of Chapter 1, is up.
Some of the chapters of this book are pretty long, so I am dividing it into sections of about 20 pages (for me, that's about 30 minutes).

PL OK! Great reading! (This man, though!)

Your idea to divide the chapters up is a good one in my view.

You'll be pleased to know that he improves somewhat in the latter part of his life, due to the love of a good (albeit married) woman. :D
