"What is sweet about Walpole is plentifully abundant in Derek Jarrett’s magnificent and definitive edition of Memoirs of the Reign of King George III. . . . Jarrett has restored sections earlier editors regarded as too risqué or too critical of George III, and he has provided careful and illuminating notes to the text. No one is likely to do better."—Albion
