Professor Jones centers attention upon the dominating phase of Gray’s life; that is, his scholarship, and his achievements in the various fields he undertook to investigate. Since his studies included such diversified subjects as poetry, Welsh, Norse, classical literature, natural science, and oriental and English history, his intellectual biography becomes a part of the history of eighteenth century learning. Jones bases his work largely on manuscript sources, so that the volume presents a great deal of fresh material.
