The Collected Letters of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle

The preparation for print publication of volumes 40-42 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. Thirty-nine volumes have been published to date in book form by Duke University Press, and the first 35 volumes of the project have been mounted into The Carlyle Letters Online (, with volumes 36-38 now in the process of being encoded, edited, and set for incorporation in summer 2012. This culmination of a ten-year effort to bring the Carlyles to the digital world has greatly increased the global accessibility of the edition. Through Oct. 2011 of the current grant period, which began in July 2009, the CLO has had more than 560,000 of its full-text html pages accessed in more than 100 countries and has established itself as a leader in the now essential field of digital humanities.
