Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2016. £79.99 (ISBN 978 1 107 93972 5). & Nicholas A. Joukovsky (ed.), Thomas Love Peacock Nightmare Abbey. Pp. cxlii + 297 (The Cambridge Edition of the Novels of Thomas Love Peacock). Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2016. £84.99 (ISBN 978 1 107 03186 9). The idiosyncratic joy of Thomas Love Peacock’s works is highlighted within wonderfully readable scholarly introductions from, Nicholas A.

These new editions are the first thoroughly edited and annotated imprints of Peacock since the Halliford Edition of the Works, edited between 1924 and 1934 by H.F.B. Brett-Smith and C.E. Jones for Constable.
