Henry St John, First Viscount Bolingbroke (1678-1751) enjoyed varied political and literary careers. This five-volume edition draws together his letters. It includes a general introduction, headnotes, biographical index and a consolidated index. It is suitable for historians and literary scholars working in the eighteenth century.
"Lashmore-Davies has performed a great service to eighteenth-century studies in making these letters easily accessible. We have long needed a more comprehensive modern edition of Bolingbroke’s correspondence, and we should be grateful for this enormous addition to the man of mercury’s invaluable epistolary canon." - Ashley Marshall, Eighteenth-Century Life
