  2. Written by Angela Tellier.

     In 1930, Dr John Buchanan bequeathed £4,000 to the University of Liverpool to fund a lectureship in Esperanto. It was the first of its kind in the world, and is still in existence today. This illustrated narrative explains why Buchanan left money to universities, hospitals and other philanthropic organisations, and why, in particular, he chose to favour the University of Liverpool with such an unusual bequest. It describes the early days of Esperanto at the University, and follows the development of the John Buchanan Lectureship and Prizes from the inaugural lecture given by Professor William Collinson in 1931 to the latest planned seminars and workshops.

    • The author skilfully combines scientific research with popular anecdotes. A fact-filled text is supplemented with photos and easily digestible extracts from articles and other documents. It's a model book; it shows, by example, how to write (whether in Esperanto or in English) a necessary history of the Esperanto movement in Britain - Paul Gubbins
