J. Raven wrote in "The Times - Literary Supplement": „Corvey also eclipses the large special collections of early British novels at the universities of Bristol and Aberdeen, and of Pennsylvania and Illinois. It is a more impressive survival than even the astonishing Hammond circulating library, preserved almost completely at the New York Society Library in Manhattan.

Professor Dr. P. Garside wrote: Edition Corvey "....has the capacity to transform our understanding of the fiction of the Romantic era,,,,,,[with] English Fiction, comprising over 2450 titles [originally published] between 1790 and 1834" (page 28 in: Peter Garside, James Raven, Rainer Schoewerling, The English Novel 1770 - 1829: A Bibliographical Survey of Prose Fiction published in the British Isles, Vol. II: 1800 - 1829, Oxord University Press, 2000, Oxford).

Another Testimonial: "... the most concentrated source available worldwide for the Romantic Era" (P. Garside, University of Edinburgh).
