These collected works - now lost - targeted my own book project, the one that is due to Routledge on April 30 of 2019. These books held special meaning. Some were signed by historians I knew. Some I had lent to students which, occasionally, came back with skittish marginalia. These books were a nine-year collection. Many were purchased in Wales, at Hay-on-Wye. Others found at library book sales, some delivered to my door. They were a near decade-long obsession with attempting to understand the past, the human condition of the long eighteenth century. Two had arrived but three days before the fire.
I am done dwelling. It’s time to rebuild that library. I will use these funds to repurchase what was lost, books dedicated to my own manuscript project. I am Joe Krulder, PhD from the University of Bristol, working on a book about the execution of Admiral John Byng. But now I need your help. I am asking for your donation, thank you!
