This is the most comprehensive study of women's letters and letter-writing in early modern England so far undertaken. Drawing on over 3,000 manuscript letters, James Daybell shows that letter-writing was a larger and more socially diversified area of female activity than often thought. The letters themselves are unparalleled as intimate and immediate records of everyday life.
