One historian noted that the Yale project collected ‘more information about a single human life than was ever done before.’”—Bruce Jacobsen, New York Times When searching the electronic version of The Yale Edition of Horace Walpole’s Correspondence, researchers should be aware of Lewis’s original editorial method: “The first decision in editing this work was to publish the letters by correspondences and not chronologically.

The Advisory Committee, I believe, are now unanimous that this decision is the right one, since most of the major correspondences and many of the minor ones have a predominant subject.
