an interesting peek into the lives of celebrated people through the centuries. A love letter can be very telling....
Jori Richardson
"Love Letters: An Illustrated Anthology" is a beautiful book. It is filled with letters of historical figures to their partners. The book is split into various sections, such as "Jealousy," "Passion," "Beginnings," "Endings," and so forth.
The book mainly contains notes penned by those in the 1700's - 1800's. Letters between King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn are included, as well as many of my other favorite persons in history. These include Victor Hugo, Stendhal, Napoleon Bonaparte, Catherine of A

I loved this book!!!! The letters are all amazing and a really interesting insight into the minds of famous people. Really enjoyable and actually not as romantic as you might think.
