From Arthur Mee's Children's Encyclopedia...

As a side-project I set myself the task of reading (not all out loud) this 10-volume set of Arthur Mee's Children's Encyclopedias which has been in my possession since childhood (and is very much older than that). Every so often I come across something that I decide to record. Those recordings are listed here (latest first):
