Have you contacted the American Printing House for the Blind in Louisville, Kentucky? They have been producing Talking Books since 1936. Their first talking book was "Gulliver's Travels" narrated by Hugh Sutton.

Subject: Talking Books pre-1952
Hello, I’m looking for information about talking book records made before 1952. I’ve done some work with books recorded for blind people, radio broadcasts of Orson Welles, and Dickens recitations. Any other suggestions would be welcome.
