"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Fifty-three hitherto unpublished letters of Burke, supplemented by some reprinted from his published correspondence and diary, "the extreme dates being 1783 and 1797, though the main interest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 are important documents, worthy of publication for their own sake, and all, so far as I am aware, are hitherto unpublished."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].
