This edition contains over 100 previously unpublished letters written in French to or by James, 1st Earl Waldegrave, who held the post of British Ambassador to France from 1730 to 1740. It provides insight into a transition period in France, a time of intellectual, social and political ferment marked by unstable relations between the major powers. The text may form the basis for a full study of Waldegrave's contribution to Anglo-French relations in the first half of the 18th century. Letters are printed in French, annotations accompany them in English.
