This 1890 biography of the English historian, politician, man of letters, and author of the first gothic novel, The Castle of Otranto (1764), is written in a light and anecdotal style—yet with sound literary judgment.  "Walpole has an almost perfect memoirist in Mr. Dobson," was the verdict of the New York Times.
