Product Description: '... edited with impressive scholarship... the footnotes... are exemplary' -The Keats-Shelley Review 16 (2002)'In addition to an eighty-page introduction, which digests Peacock's life and achievement, there is an an excellent index, and the book is produced in the impeccable tradition of the Clarendon Press' -The Keats-Shelley Review 16 (2002)'The publication of this exemplary edition - enhanced by a thorough introduction discussing Peacock's correspondents and the history of his manuscripts,... an invaluable twenty-page chronology of Peacock's life (really the outline of a more scholarly biography than has yet appeared), richly researched annotations, and an excellent index - opens a new era in Peacock studies' -Keats-Shelly Journal 51 (2002)'... he has provided students of Romanticism with the most important publication on Peacock since the Halliford Edition of his Works (1924-34)' -Keats-Shelley Journal 51 (2002)'The Letters of Thomas Love Peacock belongs in every research library and in the private collections of as many Romanticists as can afford it for the lasting value of it voluminous new evidence on the life of Peacock;... on the Shelleys and members of their circle; about the period covered by the correspondence it includes (1792-1866); and as a standard against which those editing letters of the period can measure their mastery of the materials with which they are involved.' -Keats-Shelley Journal 51 (2002)'The scholarship is evident in annotation that is enormously impressive... The notes are full of interest and Joukovsky makes his scholarship all the more useful by compiling a very fine index to the whole edition.' -Review of English StudiesThomas Love Peacock (1785-1866) was a lifelong and assiduous letter-writer at a time when the familiar letter was often virtually an art-form in itself. He had a wide circle of correspondents, and was a close friend of Shelley, whom he assisted over both personal and business affairs after Shelley's abandonment of his wife Harriet and departure to Italy. Friend also of many Radicals of the early nineteenth century, his letters often display the satiric wit of his published prose works such as Headlong Hall and Crotchet Castle. In the later part of his life he rose to high position in the East India Company's service, succeeding James Mill, under whom he had worked, as Examiner. This is the first time his extensive correspondence has been gathered together and given scholarly annotation: the two-volume edition will be invaluable both to students of Romantic literature and to historians of the period.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
