‎Horace Walpole, famous for his novel The Castle of Otranto and his gothick castle-villa, Strawberry Hill, has been oddly shielded by his previous admirers.

The most famous of these was W. Lewis, a rich American scholar, who collected virtually all of Walpole's surviving letters and papers. Walpole wrote A Description of the Villa of Mr Horace Walpole at Strawberry-Hill near Twickenham, Middlesex, an illustrated guide to Strawberry Hill, and printed it on his own printing press.

However, he seldom gave copies out as he feared that visitors would never leave if they sought to see everything in the book.

It is the type example of the "Strawberry Hill Gothic" style of architecture, and it prefigured the nineteenth-century Gothic e rebuilt the existing house in stages starting in, and Horace Walpole's Strawberry Hill Press, founded inis the most celebrated of the early English private presses, unique for the importance of the books, pamphlets, and ephemera it produced.

Horace Walpole ‘Man of Letters’, was a prolific writer, starting at the age of 7 and continuing with this passion into his 70’s.

During his lifetime he produced some 7, letters, the world’s first gothic novel ‘The Castle of Otranto’ (inspired by a nightmare he experienced at Strawberry Hill House), and an account of his collection in ‘A Description of the Villa of Horace Walpole’. Strawberry Hill had its own printing press, the Strawberry Hill Press, which supported Horace Walpole's intensive literary activity.

Innot using his own press, he anonymously published his Gothic novel, The Castle of Otranto, claiming on its title page that it was a translation "from the Original Italian of Onuphirio Muralto".
