"This four volume collection of letters is now complete and will be a lasting monument to Renouf ... Professor Cathcart applies his scholarship with great attention to the details of matters ecclesiastical as well as Egyptylogical ... the writer of the letter is identified, the text to each letter is set out and notes appear at its foot ... each volume commences with a biography of Renouf and ends with a list of brief lives of the principal correspondents or of individuals who are referred to in the letters. The work is printed on good quality paper and the typeface is clear and attractive. The production is a credit to the publishers, the University College Dublin Press." Geoffrey Allez, La Societe Guernesiaise Report and Transactions XXV (4) 2004 "[This] volumes intrinsic interest lies in the illuminative view it presents of the early years of the university and Newman's management of affairs ... This third volume of Renouf letters constitutes an important source for historians of nineteenth-century higher education. It is, as with the first two volumes, meticulously produced and carefully edited." V. Alan McClelland Recusant History 2005 "Professor Cathcart, in these four volumes of letters has presented a clear, endurable and credible picture of an important figure who touched in many ways the varied moods of the nineteenth century. He has supplied a fine introduction, unobtrusive notes, full biographies of all correspondents, a useful bibliography of source material and a user-friendly index. It is a model of how a collection of letters should be presented." A. Alan McClelland Recusant History 2007
