Royce Library Recovery Project

The Royce Library Recovery Project seeks to provide the scholarly community with an unprecedented glimpse into the personal library of Josiah Royce. Based upon recent archival research, I have discovered leads for recovering more than 40% (i.e. 385 volumes) of an estimated 934 volumes that formerly belonged to Royce prior to being donated to Harvard College Library.

This website serves the purpose of raising funding to facilitate archival and library research that will reclaim significant portions of Royce’s personal library. By giving to the Royce Library Recovery Project your support will help fund research that will make an important contribution to the Royce community by making available texts and marginalia that will deepen our understanding of Royce’s life and work. To learn more about this project and its principal researcher, please browse before going to the Donation Page.

Thank you for your interest and support.
