Here at last is the first volume of the long--awaited edition of Henry James letters by the worlds foremost Jamesian scholar. James was a superlative letter-writer; his correspondence constitutes one of the greateat self-portraits in all literature. In this edition Mr. Edel, respecting Jamess view that only the best of a writers letters deserve publication, skims the cream of the fifteen thousand letters collected or discovered, many by the biographer himself, since the novelists death in 1916. In volume one, the first of a projected four, he provides a general introduction and a necessary minimum of annotation, and prefaces each section-- Boyhood and Youth; Beginnings; The Grand Tour; A Season in Cambridge; Travel and Opportunity; and The Choice--with an informative account of Jamess attitudes and activities during the period in question. The volume closes, appropriately, with Jamess decision in 1875, at age thirty-two, to move permanently to Europe.
