Detailed Description
Letters were the social glue of Renaissance society, facilitating personal, political, and commercial contact between individuals and groups separated by geography. They contain perhaps our most immediate insights into daily life in early modern England. The Folger's collection of manuscript and early printed letters, unparalleled in North America, offers examples of the many genres of letter. Selections in this catalog show the material conditions of early modern letter writing. The catalog demonstrates the importance of elements that were lost when the letter made its way into printed form: the seals, enclosures, endorsements, foldings, paper, and inks that all carried their own message in this pre-envelope era. Alan Stewart, guest curator, and Heather Wolfe, Curator of Manuscripts. Stewart, Alan, and Wolfe, Heather. 2004. ISBN: 0-295-98509-7.214 pgs, color.
