The Collected Letters of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle

The preparation for print publication of volumes 43, 44, and 45 of the Collected Letters of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle, and publication of volumes 39-41 in an existing online archive. (36 months)

Begun in 1970, the Duke-Edinburgh edition of The Collected Letters of Thomas [TC] and Jane Welsh [JWC] Carlyle is regarded by biographers, historians, critics, students, and general readers as one of the finest and most comprehensive literary archives of the nineteenth century. Forty-two volumes have been published to date in book form by Duke University Press, and the first thirty-eight volumes have been published in the Carlyle Letters Online (http://carlyleletters.org), with volumes 39-41 now in the process of being encoded, edited, and set for release in spring 2015. This culmination of a thirteen-year effort to bring the Carlyles to the digital world has greatly increased the global accessibility of the edition. Through November 2014 of the current grant period, which began in October 2012, the CLO has had more than one million of its full-text pages accessed in more than 180 countries and has established itself as a leader in the now essential field of digital humanities.
