The letters and private papers of William Makepeace Thackeray : a supplement to Gordon N. Ray, the Letters and private papers of William Makepeace ThackerayVolume I
Part of the Routledge Revivals series
First published in 1994, these two volumes are intended as a supplement to the four-volume edition edited by Gordon N.
Ray in 1945-46. In writing to his broad range of correspondents, Thackeray produced a varied body of letters that will help readers to better understand his nineteenth-century society as well as his professional and private life - especially his relationships with women.
These volumes contain 1713 letters: 1464 to and from Thackeray that were not included in the earlier volumes, and 249 with texts that have been edited from newly available manuscripts, and that thereby replace texts that were printed in Ray from incomplete sources.
