The Gladstone Diaries - Vol. 12

PREFACE

Volumes XII and XIII (together with the index, Volume XIV) bring to a close this edition of Gladstone's diaries. In addition to the daily diary text, Volumes XII and XIII include, as with the other volumes covering the years from 1868 onwards, all Gladstone's cabinet minutes, many of his memoranda, and a generous selection of his letters written while Prime Minister (over 500 letters for 1892-4).

Her Majesty the Queen is gratefully to be thanked for permission to include material from the Royal Archives, as is the Archbishop of Canterbury--owner of the diaries--for permission to publish them. Sir William Gladstone has given permission to publish material written by his great-grandfather and preserved in the British Library, St. Deiniol's Library at Hawarden, and in many other collections. He has been a generous and helpful friend to this edition. The Gladstone family have followed their illustrious ancestor in setting an excellent example in their scrupulous and historical attitude to the Gladstone papers. The editor is also very grateful to the Earl of Rosebery, the late Lord Harcourt, and Mr. A. F. Thomson for permission to quote from papers in their possession.

The following have generously given permission for their illustrations to be used in these volumes: Sir William Gladstone, the Governing Body of Newnham College, Cambridge, Clwyd Record Office, the Trustees of the National Portrait Gallery, the Trustees of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and the Curators of the Bodleian Library. Illustrations not attributed to an owner in the lists of illustrations are the property of the editor.

The editor continues to be much indebted to the ad hoc committee which superintends the publication of the edition. Lord Blake has been its chairman since I was appointed editor in 1972; other members of the committee presently are Lord Bullock, Dr. Richard Palmer, Mr. William Thomas, Mr. A. F. Thompson, Dr. Jonathan Wright, with Dr. Ivon Asquith of the Oxford University Press as its secretary, and Dr. Fram Dinshaw of St. Catherine's College (the edition's academic sponsor) as its treasurer. Like Lord Blake, Lord Bullock and Mr. A. F. Thompson have been members of the committee throughout my editorship. No editor could wish for a better committee to which to be responsible.

The research for these volumes has been financed by the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Gladstone Memorial Trust, and especially by the Rhodes Trust which has carried the chief burden of the research costs since the mid- 1970s. The Rhodes Trust has been both generous and non-bureaucratic. It has required the edition to be edited and it has not slowed that process by requesting elaborate documentation. In today's world that is an unusual and very welcome abstinence.

Equally important in the progress of the edition to its conclusion has been Gladstone's own College of Christ Church, Oxford. Since 1970, it has provided rooms for the project, use of its magnificent library, and a Lectureship in
