About this Book

The first three volumes of this set of Select Works of Edmund Burke, fully edited by Edward John Payne (1844-1904), were originally published by the Clarendon Press, Oxford, from 1874 to 1878. Liberty Fund now publishes them again, with a fourth volume of additional writings by Burke. The original set has been praised by Clara I. Gandy and Peter J. Stanlis as "an outstanding critical anthology of Burke's essential works on the American and French revolutions"; and they went on to say: "The scholarship and criticism is perhaps the best on Burke during the last quarter of the nineteenth century."...
