This edition of the extant four hundred and sixty-four surviving letters from the editor and man of letters W.E. Henley (1849-1903) to the classical scholar Charles Whibley (1859-1930) cover the period late 1888 to June 1903 and give an insight into the workings of an editor and his major contributor and also their firm friendship, with Whibley replacing Robert Louis Stevenson in Henley's life.
