With the Rev. William Cole, I
Imprint: Yale University Press
The Yale Edition of Horace Walpole's Correspondence, encompasses as it does politics, society, literature, the arts, and antiquarianism, constitutes a conspectus of the life and thought of the eighteenth century. Indeed, the serious student of the time, whatever his field of interest, will find that Walpole and his correspondents have said something, perhaps a great deal, about it. The emphasis in this edition of Walpole correspondences is upon their value to scholars as the most informative record in letters of his time.
