“Let it Be a Book, Rising from the Ashes” – Mosul Eye

Mosul’s many libraries used to be housing the most precious and valuable manuscripts and rare prints in the region, and its libraries used to be the destination for anyone who’s looking for those treasures. And in a devastating assault on the humanity heritage in Mosul, ISIL devastated Mosul’s libraries, among the devastation it inflicted on the city, wrecking those libraries by stealing, destroying and burning those treasures, under different excuses. Once as “useless science”, another as “Illegitimate science”, and last but not least, “blasphemous books”!
The only copy of Encyclopaedia of Islam in Mosul was destroyed by ISIS when they destroyed the library. Help me to give Mosul a copy of E.J. Brill's First Encyclopaedia of Islam, 1913-1936

Dear all,
I have successfully ordered the Encyclopaedia of Islam 1913-1936, E.J. Brill's First (9 vols) today from Brill. They gave us 50% discount and the total price was (including taxes and shipping) 481.50 EUR. It shall arrive in 3 to 4 working days. I will keep you updated. With the rest of the funds we will buy more books from Brill and ship them all together to Mosul.

Dear donors,
Thank you so much for your generous donations.
I am purchasing "E.J. Brill's First Encyclopaedia of Islam, 1913-1936" today. the price with the shipping fees is 921 Euro but with 50% discount from Brill we will manage to get it just for just 467.5 Euro including the shipping fees from the UK to Paris. I will then ship it to Mosul.
With the rest of the funds I thought we will be able to buy the Encyclopaedia of Islam Three but the price is higher than I thought as Brill told me today, it is EUR 5,526. So with your donations I will get more books and ship it to Mosul. I will publish the titles of the books once I get them.

I am happy to announce that with your generous donations and a kind offer of a 50% discount from Brill Publishing, we are now ready to purchase Encyclopedia of Islam I. With the rest of the funds, we will purchase EI3 since Brill has offered the discount. I will start the process today and will be waiting for a response from Brill on Monday. I will keep you updated.
Brill also asked me to send them a photo of the EI1 volumes on the University of Mosul library stacks once they arrive. This encyclopedia will give students, researchers and scholars access to important information akin to their international colleagues to continue their studies and work. The encyclopedia will be deposited to the Unit for the Study of Istishraq (Orientalism).
Regards,
Omar
