This collection of over 650 letters from the ready pen of Elizabeth Gaskell holds much appeal for both the scholar and the general reader.
Firstly, it is very well organised as an academic resource - the letters are presented chronologically (a task requiring some admirable detective work in the case of undated letters) but a numbering system at the head of each letter allows for speedy tracking of letters to an individual addressee. Literary and biographical indices facilitate cross-referencing
