About this book


These letters have been selected according to their ability to convey the essential biographical developments of a very interesting life, and their ability to represent highly characteristic verbal and pictorial expressions of a great man of letters. In spite of his struggles, Thackeray articulates in his letters an exhuberance characteristic of one of the great enjoyers of life. Seventy five of his comical illustrations accompany the texts of these letters.
