Re: Late Qing Intellectual History Resource: 沅湘通藝錄

Don, I would love to take it over from you. Worked on earlier exams, but remain interested. Can you let me know whether it is still available and what would be the best arrangement? You can email me if that is easier (contact info here: https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/staffmembers/hilde-de-weerdt#tab-1 )
Best,
Hilde
