Horace Walpole at 300 blog

July 3, 2017

The Lewis Walpole Library announces the launch of a new blog “Horace Walpole at 300” in celebration of the life, works, and collections of Horace Walpole on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of his birth. This year-long blog will feature items from the Lewis Walpole Library’s collection associated with Walpole. Each week, a new blog post will look at something that Walpole either owned, wrote, had printed at his house Strawberry Hill, or in some way was closely connected with him. Alternating with entries by current Lewis Walpole Library staff and former Fellows will be chapters from W.S. Lewis’s Rescuing Horace Walpole, reproduced here with permission of the Yale University Press.
