"Ex musæo Hvthii."
Fifty-three hitherto unpublished letters of Burke, supplemented by some reprinted from his published correspondence and diary, "the extreme dates being 1783 and 1797, though the main interest centres on the last nine years, the period between the outbreak of the French revolution and the death of Burke. The remaining forty-two letters are selected ... with a view to illustrating the subjects mentioned in Burke's letters ... Many of these ... are important documents, worthy of publication for their own sake, and all, so far as I am aware, are hitherto unpublished." cf. Introd., p. [xiii].

Search Tips

Phrase Searching

Use quotes to search an exact phrase: e.g. "occult fiction"


Use * or ? to search for alternate forms of a word. Use * to stand for several characters, and ? for a single character: e.g. optim* will find optimal, optimize or optimum; wom?n will find woman and women.

Boolean Searching

Use AND and OR between words to combine them with Boolean logic: e.g. (heart OR cardiac) AND surgery will find items about heart surgery or cardiac surgery. Boolean terms must be in uppercase.
