"The archives that emerged from the parochial administration of the English poor law before 1834 include letters that came from the poor themselves. Some 750 of these pauper letters are contained in this volume, revealing the strong belief of the poor in their right to relief and their surprisingly powerful position in negotiating their case with the overseers."--Publisher description.

4 vols. " The book contains over 2,000 letters, and while a few are business – to publishers, agents and secretaries – the majority are much more personal. Wells's private correspondence extends from letters to President Franklin Roosevelt and Prime Ministers Winston Churchill and A.J. Balfour, to persons such as ‘Mark Benney’, who wrote novels based on his life in the slums and his time in prison. There is correspondence too with his many female friends and lovers, among them Rebecca West, Eileen Power, Gertrude Stein, Marie Stopes, Lilah MacCarthy and Dorothy Richardson [...] Some of his letters on the controversies of free love, socialism, birth control, the Fabian Society, and the nature of the curriculum of the new London University in the 1890s are included." (From the publisher's description)
3 vols. "Roughly one third of the eighteenth century is represented by each of the three volumes. Of the sixty-three poets included (eleven women, forty-eight men, four anonymous), thirteen are found in the first volume (1700-1740), twenty in the second (1740-1780), and thirty in the third ((1780-1800). These divisions are meant to reflect the increasing number of laboring class poets who published as the eighteenth century unfolded. Authors are included chronologically by publication date of the first poem included" (From the Eighteenth Century Studies Journal review by Lorna Clymer)
