This volume, first published in 1954, is one of three presenting the correspondence of David Hume, one of the great men of the eighteenth century. It complements J. Y. T. Greig's two-volume Letters of David Hume, first published in 1932. Klibansky and Mossner brought together letters from1737 to 1776, discovered after the publication of Greig's edition. Hume's correspondents in this volume include such famous thinkers and public figures as Adam Smith, James Boswell, and Benjamin Franklin. The edition offers a rich picture of the man and his age, and is a uniquely valuable resourceto anyone with an interest in early modern thought.
