Big Book Sale

We have put a huge selection of our books on sale. Prices are discounted 10% to 70% off of retail.


B4026. Letterwriting in Renaissance England
B4026. Letterwriting in Renaissance England. 2005. 216pp. 9"x12". Paper.

We have many books on the formal hands and the books great and small that they were used in. However, there is much less for the general reader on the everyday use of the handwritten word in correspondence. This book fills part of that gap. There are short discussions of tools, letterwriting manuals, the letter and social signals, use of secretaries, love and friendship, and the postal “system.” There are wonderful examples with thorough descriptions, providing further insight into the subject. The book is elegantly designed and finely printed to grace your bookshelves. Though the exhibit is long past, with this book you get to savor it at your leisure, sitting down in a comfortable chair with your favorite beverage.
