Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The entire publication is something of a momentous occasion for readers interested in eighteenth-century literature and the history of the novel. Publication of all the securely attributable works and letters will finally allow us to assess Richardson’s achievement with the aid of a fully annotated scholarly edition with explanatory and textual apparatus."
—The Cambridge Quarterly

"For Richardson scholars, these meticulously edited volumes will represent an epoch in the field, since they will constitute the only comprehensive scholarly edition."
-Year's Work in English Studies

Miriam Rothschild
About love and affection, spring and picnics on frosty afternoon, and the leisure that we have forgotten ever existed.
