The Edmund Burke Collection
William B. Todd wrote the descriptive bibliography of the works of Irish statesman Edmund Burke (1729?-1797). Numbering over 260 volumes, this collection was Todd's own library of early editions of Burke and of contemporaries such as Bolingbroke, Paine, and Sheridan. The collection also includes a set of The Annual Register from 1759 to 1802.
The collection was acquired by purchase in 1994 with a finding aid: Todd's own list numbered according to his book, A Bibliography of Edmund Burke (London: Hart-Davis, 1964).

Please note that the Department of Special Collections continues to acquire editions of Burke's works that were not among the editions that came with Todd's library. For these, and for other works about Burke and his contemporaries in print and microformats in the University Libraries, you may search the ND Libraries catalog.
