The Correspondence of George Berkeley

I am engaged in a scholarly project to collect, edit, and critically annotate the correspondence of George Berkeley (1685-1753), Irish philosopher and later Anglican Bishop of Cloyne (1734). My research will produce a necessary reference volume that fills gaps in the field (no complete edition of the collected correspondence exists, and several of the published letters that are available contain errors). Cambridge University Press has already expressed interest in publishing the project. I am seeking support for primary source research in scattered locations around Ireland and the United Kingdom. Among other places I will do research in the British Library and at Trinity College, Dublin -- places where most of the original letters are held. I propose to visit these locations in order to examine the original letters and related documents to complete an accurate draft of the correspondence.
