From the editor of the New York Times bestseller and instant classic Letters of Note, comes this companion volume of more than 125 captivating letters. Each turn of the page brings delight and discovery in a collection of correspondence that spans centuries and place, written by the famous, the not-so-famous, and the downright infamous. Entries are accompanied by a transcript of the letter, a short contextual introduction, and a spirited illustration—in most cases, a facsimile of the letter itself. A splendid gatefold features one extraordinary hand-embroidered biographical letter. As surprising as it is entertaining, Letters of Note: Volume 2 is a gift of endless enjoyment and lasting value.
