This fine collection is accompanied by an essay by Sir John Pollock that skillfully places the writers' ideas in the perspective of recent experience. A crucial document for lawyers, the letters are also delightful reading. Clifton Fadiman, in "The New Yorker," noted that, taking in questions of philosophy, history and literature, touching often wittily on hundreds of famous personages and appealing, I should think, to anyone interested in the play of two first-rate minds...these volumes recall to us something forgotten these days: the charm...of scholarship when it is the easy tool of men who are more than scholars.
