"Mr. W.S. Lewis is a prodigy of erudition who, besides editing these letters, has made a unique collection of Walpoliana and given us a penetrating account of his hero. . . . I cannot praise too highly the editing, the rich annotation of the printing of this Yale edition. An emeritus professor of English has pointed out to me, Mr. Lewis and his collaborators know more than did any of Walpole's friends about this fascinating figure."—Times Literary Supplement

"The work is a monument not only to the eighteenth century but to the twentieth as well, representing, as it does, a rare combination of the arts and skills of editor, collector, and printer. . . . Walpole, with the help of his correspondents, recreates a period as no secondary account has ever succeeded in doing. . . . Volume [36] consists of the correspondence of Walpole with twenty-six members of his extended family to which an end paper containing the family tree furnishes a welcome guide. The chronological order of the letters, exceptional where several correspondents are concerned, serves to give continuity to the story of Walpole's relations with other member of his family."—American Historical Review

"The continued high standards of editing the Walpole correspondence make Volumes 35 and 36 a storehouse of information about eighteenth-century England. Most important, however, are the many letters to and from Walpole now printed for the first time. From them, Walpole's character takes on more complexity and depth, especially in terms of his family relationships."—Philological Quarterly

"Required purchase in all serious libraries."—Choice
