This penultimate volume of John Locke's correspondence covers the period from 15 May 1703 to 23 August 1704. The full Index to the Correspondence, originally planned for inclusion in this volume, will now be published separately as Volume 9 in the series.
From reviews of earlier volumes:
` It is more than seventy years since Henry Ollion expressed the hope that one day England would give Locke an edition of his letters worthy of the philospher and his country. Here at last we have it.' Keith Thomas, English Historical Review
`No-one could have been better equipped in learning, editorial skills, patience and ingenuity for this immense task than Dr de Beer: and the latest volume exemplifies these qualities just as well as the first. The editing is quite simply a model of its kind.' K. H. D. Haley, Times Literary Supplement
`It is a pleasure to be able to congratulate the editor, who substantially completed and proof-read the volume ... before failing eyesight compelled him to cease work.'
Times Literary Supplement
`In the combination of their subject's immense importance and their editor's extraordinarily high standards there can be few competitors for the palme d'or amongst editions of correspondence. It is a mighty achievement.'
