Texts Project Aims

At present few, if any, of Sydney’s works are available in print; the last widely available selection, edited by W.H. Auden, was published in 1957 in the USA alone. The Sydney Smith Texts Project, in fulfilment of the Association’s aims, seeks to make a growing selection of Sydney’s work available once again by using the World Wide Web.  

The Association is looking after the transcripts of some 800 hitherto unpublished letters of Sydney Smith. There is a publisher interested in producing a revised and enlarged edition of the the collected letters, if a scholar can be found who is willing to edit them and write an introduction. Please contact the chair or secretary if you would like more information.

 

Thanks and calls for help...

The association is glad to place on record our warmest thanks to Richard Croucher and the Gemini Foundation for providing financial help to launch website. Thanks too to all those members who gave time to proof-reading the initial selection of texts.

Making electronic texts available is a lengthy process, whose burden may be lightened by many hands. Anyone who is interested will be most welcome to participate. Electronic texts will be especially welcome, as are any corrections of the current texts. Help with proof-reading will be similarly welcome, so will favourite sayings (particularly if sourced precisely).

Direct contact can be made via the website contacts page.
