## Reviews

"The Letters of George Santayana, scrupulously edited by William G. Holzberger over the course of thirty years, is a model of what a splendid collection of letters should be. Handsomely printed, thoughtfully footnoted, with a minimum of scholarly interference between the text and the reader . . . [The Works of George Santayana] constitute one of the grand academic publishing projects of our time.", Joseph Epstein, The New Criterion

"The eighth volume of The Letters of George Santayana—like the seven before it—has been edited in accordance with the highest standards of scholarship and accessible presentation. The books themselves are of a manageable size. People referred to in the letters are clearly identified, and obscure references are explained. Editions such as this do not typically sell well, which is an enormous shame.", Robert D. Richardson, Wall Street Journal
