This odd little book of 'self-improvement' comprises 157 specimens of the art of writing letters, covering everything from turning down suitors to the crucial business (gentlemen only) of writing a will. In his foreword to this facsimile reprint John Michinson of QI likens the book to 'strolling across a host of unwritten Victorian novels, picking up traces of snobbery and dashed expectations, money troubles and stifled passions'.
