This edition of the extant four hundred and sixty-four surviving letters from the editor and man of letters W.E. Henley (1849-1903) to the classical scholar Charles Whibley (1859-1930) cover the period late 1888 to June 1903 and give an insight into the workings of an editor and his major contributor and also their firm friendship, with Whibley replacing Robert Louis Stevenson in Henley’s life.

Reviews

“As a cultural, literary, publishing, and personal history, then, these letters are a welcome addition to the historical record and will offer sources of pleasure and insight to new readers for years to come... The Henley-Whibley letters, admirably annotated, thus pose a resource of special interest to newspaper and publishing historians.”
