Audio recording of Bewick’s Memoir.
Bewick wrote his Memoir at the age of seventy-five so that his children, and especially his daughter Jane, should come to know more of their family history.
In the previous century an audio recording of an excellent reading of the Memoir was made by one of the staff at the Cherryburn Trust. This has now been converted into MP3 format for online listening and has been edited into shorter chapters (see below). They can also be downloaded by right clicking the menu and can be played on iPods and other such devices. (personal use only).
N.B. These recordings were originally made on analogue cassette and have been digitally encoded into MP3 format for the web. There is a slight quality issue due to the unsatisfactory nature of the original source material.
