"This great edition of Walpole's correspondence has been called encyclopedic. Its index not only justifies that accolade but proves once again that as a scholarly enterprise of eighteenth-century life and culture the edition has few if any rivals."?Robert Halsband, Times Literary Supplement

"[The project] sets new standards for scholarship: the index alone comprises five volumes and more than 3,000 entries. One historian noted that the Yale project collected 'more information about a single human life than was ever done before.'"?Bruce Jacobsen, New York Times
