Diderot's Relations with Grimm

Excerpt

This study was begun before the recent war, the late Professor Paul Hazard having suggested to me that the Correspondance litteraire should furnish a fertile and not yet exhausted field for literary research. The further the study of Grimm progressed, the more evident it became that his relations with Diderot had never been satisfactorily explored. In the end, the most significant aspect of the undertaking became Diderot's relations with Grimm.

It is genuine pleasure to acknowledge here my gratitude to Professor Norman L. Torrey under whose patient and wise guidance this study was done. I am indebted to many others, notably the late Professor Albert Schinz, and to Professor Herbert Dieckmann with whom I had the privilege of discussing various problems, and whose Diderot bibliography proved to be indispensable. I am particularly grateful to Professor Otis E. Fellows for his counsel and aid, especially during the final preparation of the manuscript. I should like also to thank Professors Joseph F. Jackson, Harris Fletcher, Helmut Rehder, and H. E. Cunningham. For whatever errors may yet remain, the author is, of course, solely responsible. Finally to my wife I am most deeply indebted for her loyalty and understanding during the years this work was in progress.
