"Mr. Hazen's catalogue of Horace Walpole's library identifies virtually every printed piece at Strawberry Hill, shows where it stood on the shelves there, gives the history of each book in so far as it has been recovered and the prices it has fetched, indicates Walpole's marginalia and extra-illustration, and finally, shows how he used his books in writing his works and letters." (from jacket front flap).
