Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 019812337X, Hardcover)

An important figure in the politics of his time, Halifax is increasingly seen as an important literary figure as well. This is the first complete edition of his works to make use of all 30 available manuscripts, 17 of which are being published for the first time, having lain unnoticed for two centuries among family papers. They increase the extent of Halifax's writings as edited for the Oxford English Texts by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1912. The remaining pieces are based upon a comparison of all known manuscript copies and early printed editions, including two previously unknown holographs. The effect is to revise and deepen our understanding of Halifax in ways that are crucial to understanding his political motivation.
