The publication of Horace Walpole's Miscellaneous Correspondence marks the triumphant conclusion to what has been called "the greatest private scholarly achievement in history." Except for the comprehensive six-volume index, which will follow shortly, this is the final installment of the monumental Yale Edition of Horace Walpole's Correspondence, begun in 1937. 

"The world is grateful for the devotion of the scholarly editions at Yale. Through their labors of love the world of belles-lettres will have been enriched beyond calculation."—The New York Times

"These volumes mark the conclusion of this project that has set many standards for excellence in the field of documentary editing. . . . These volumes are essential for those interested in eighteenth century England and, as well, for aspiring editors. With the exception of Julian Boyd's Jefferson papers and Lyman Butterfield's Adams papers, it is rare to see such depth in editing."—The Manuscript Society

"[This] project has delighted and astonished three generations of scholars. Its scope is prodigious, for Lewis proposed nothing less than the publication of every single letter, whether penned or received by every single letter, whether penned or received by Walpole, that the editor's energetic searches, sleuth-like instincts, and ample wallet could bring to light. He proposed, moreover, to lay a foundation of such superb scholarship beneath this house of correspondence that the inquisitive reader could neither miss a now-dark allusion nor misconstrue an elliptical ambiguity. The achievement realizes the dream: the Yale Edition stands peerless among the various editorial projects of our day."—Reed Browning, American Historical Review

"Clearly, the Yale Walpole is a distinguished monument to the accomplishments of its celebrated subject, particularly Walpole as an indefatigable epistolary artist."—Martin Kallichi, 18th Century Studies

"The Walpole index is the fullest compendious guide to information about the eighteenth century of this or any other century."—Joseph Reed, The Papers of the Bibliographic Society of America
