§ First edition. While more limited in scope than Dyer’s earlier work on the subject (Tarr restricts himself to the writings of Carlyle, with a few exceptions), Tarr’s volume is easy to use, and accessible, making great use of Tarr’s encyclopedic knowledge. See PBSA LXXXIV, No. 2 (June, 1990), pp. 188-190. Item #104300
