An edition of the correspondence from the Marquise du Deffand to George Augustus Selwyn, celebrated wit and minor politician of the eighteenth century. Selwyn, like his life-long friend Horace Walpole, destroyed or had destroyed his side of the correspondence, but the Marquise's letters survive, providing an interesting insight into the social history of the times. Thirty-two of these letters are published for the first time in this volume. Includes preface outlining the textual apparatus, an introduction, an appendix containing twenty-five unpublished letters to Selwyn from other French correspondents, a bibliography, and an index.
