Description

The full title is as follows: "The Letters and Life of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu; Edited by her Great-Grandson, Lord Wharcliffe, With Additions and Corrections Derived from the Original Manuscripts, Illustrative Notes and a Memoir by W. Moy Thomas." Quoted from the Thomas "Preface."

"THE present edition of the works of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu comprises the contents of the edition in three volumes published by Lord Wharncliffe in 1837, including the Introductory
Anecdotes contributed by the late Lady Louisa Stuart, a granddaughter of Lady Mary. In prefixing to that edition the Memoir written by Mr. Dallaway, Lord Wharncliffe adopted the plan of printing it entire, with notes correcting such errors and misstatements as he had observed. But to these would now have to be added many others, and it appeared to be of little avail to attempt to remedy the misconceptions and defects of Mr. Dallaway's narrative. It is therefore now omitted. A far abler pen has furnished a large amount of interesting particulars concerning Lady Mary and her family: the Introductory Anecdotes fill, indeed, so large a space in the preliminary matter, and approach so nearly to the character of a biography, that it would be hardly necessary to substitute any memoir for that of Mr. Dallaway; but for the fact that some questions of interest in the Life of Lady Mary are only lightly touched, or are at least left unsettled by Lady Louisa Stuart's remarks. It seemed desirable to investigate more closely than previous editors have done the charges preferred against Lady Mary by Pope and Horace Walpole, and those who have since adopted their statements or imbibed their spirit, and to test them by the better information which I have been so fortunate as to obtain. In preparing the Memoir I have therefore confined myself principally to these points, and have also endeavoured to avoid repeating information which the reader will find conveyed with so much vivacity and good sense in Lady Louisa Stuart's contribution."
