This bibliography from one of America's leading scholars offers a wealth of new research on one of the eighteenth century's "prolific men of letters." Richard Hurd, a Bishop in the Anglican Church, was a consummate writer and editor of books. He was a close friend of King George III and his wife and was held in high esteem by Dr. Samuel Johnson, William Warburton and other leading literati of his age. However, Horace Walpole was one of his sharpest critics. This bibliography will be a welcomed addition to the libraries of historians and bibliophiles of 18th century literature.
