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 size 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.

"Together with a painstakingly edited volume of additions and corrections, these volumes mark the completion of a distinguished literary and scholarly enterprise begun in 1937."?Library Journal

"The work is a blessing to many forms of historical scholarship. It is also, however, an opportunity to non-specialist readers. If you like anecdotes and aphorisms, contrasts in manners?if you want to see, close up, some basic but hidden aspects of the sociable, rational beast?you will benefit from Walpole."?Irvin Ehrenpreis, New York Review of Books
