Synopsis of  Turner: Collected Correspondence of J.M.W. Turner:

This is the first collected edition of the correspondence of J.M.W. Turner, together with a travel diary of a tour of Wales in 1792 and a short memoir by one of Turner’s closest friends, George Jones. The Diary and the memoir are unpublished, as are almost half of the nearly 300 letters and all are accompanied by full annotation and a detailed biographical index of correspondence, incorporating a large proportion of unpublished material.
