This collection of 125 letters offers a never-before-seen glimpse of the events and people of history--the brightest and the best, the most notorious, and the endearingly everyday. Letters are not ordered chronologically or thematically, but are artfully arranged for a discovery-rich reading experience. Each entry includes a transcript of the letter; a short contextual introduction; and, in 100 cases, a facsimile of the letter itself.

Powerful. Intimate. Unforgettable.

A glimpse into the private world of famous and not so famous people from thousands of years ago up to recent times. A wide range of authors and subject matter. What a fabulous idea for a book - even more so when the original handwritten copy is included with a typed duplicate and related pictures included.

I look forward to reading the second volume.
