A collection of some of the most extraordinary and powerful letters of all time, ranging from tablets that vividly describe life in the Roman Empire to remarkable wills and testaments, passionate outpourings of love and despair to succinct notes with deadly consequences. Entries include: a CV from Leonardo da Vinci, with barely a mention of his artistic talents; Henry VIII's love letters to Anne Boleyn, (which eventually led to the break with Rome); a last letter from the Titanic; and Nelson Mandela’s rebuke to the South African president. Republished edition with new cover.
