Betsy Cadwaldyr Funding Appeal

  

£10.00     BUY THIS BOOK

Betsy Cadwaladyr would have been remarkable in any age; in the nineteenth century her adventurous life - she travelled the world and worked as a nurse at the Balaclava military hospital during the Crimean War - was truly extraordinary.

Her autobiography was first published in 1857, Honno Press brought it back into print in 1986 and kept it in print for 25 years. Her name has since been used for the largest health organisation in Wales and her life story is taught in Welsh schools.

Sadly her autobiography is now out of print, but Honno has plans for a new edition which will restore important elements of the original version and add new material for twenty-first-century readers and students.

The new edition of her autobiography will contain the full text of Betsy's story, the introduction by Jane Williams (who wrote the narrative) on Betsy's social and religious background and the informative introduction by leading women's historian Deirdre Beddoe.

In addition, it will include the preface in which Jane Williams described how she and Betsy worked together on the narrative, and notes to explain to modern readers the book's references to nineteenth-century events and people.

The new edition will reflect Betsy's importance in the history of the women of Wales.

Honno's funding is for new books only, and this is why we are appealing now for help to pay for the new printing. The money raised will be used for editorial fees, and printing and production costs (e.g. cover design, image licensing). Together we can help to bring to a wider readership the story of a nineteenth-century Welsh woman who was brave, adventurous, and totally unique.
