Recensioner i media

Peter Raby, Literary Review The book is a valuable addition to the literature on Wallace. The editing is scrupulous and detailed but not intrusive. The texts have been retranscribed and corrected. The illustrations are attractive and judiciously chosen. This is an excellent introduction to the formative years.

Caroline Cornish, Journal of Historical Geography it is good to have these letters in hard copy, and, at 16.99, this volume represents excellent value.
