The Letters of Robert Bloomfield and His Circle, Edited By Tim Fulford and Lynda Pratt
about this edition search this edition

Thematic Index to the Letters
of Robert Bloomfield and His Circle

Numbers in square brackets refer to the letter numbers.

Where letters are addressed to, rather than from, Bloomfield, or sent between members of his extended circle, the identity of the correspondent(s) has also been given. In a small number of instances, parts of a single letter have been written by more than one correspondent. Here again, the identity of the writer has been indicated, however, only for the relevant entry in the index. (So, for example, letter 379 is by Joseph Weston to George Bloomfield, but has a preface by Hannah Bloomfield).
