The four volumes of this inclusive edition of Thackeray’s correspondence and private papers—two ready now and two to follow in the autumn of 1946—fill a great gap in our knowledge of the author of Vanity Fair and Henry Esmond. Scattered in a thousand places, some of them confidential, Thackeray’s personal papers concealed a wealth of information about a striking personality and about his time.

The third and fourth volumes include a mass of letters written by Thackeray while he was in the United States for his two lecture tours in the Eastern and Southern States.
