Wooden Box of Handwritten Letters (100+)
A huge collection of over 100 handwritten letters. Spanning two decades, from the 1950's to the early 1970's, all written to a Dutch lady named Anne Marie, from an academic & well travelled gentleman called Paul.
The multi page letters give a fascinating insight into the lives & times they were living through, as well as their romantic feelings towards each other…
This is a lovely time capsule, a real piece of social history, a poignant story told through letters from one man to his dear friend, the letters could quite easily be the basis of a novel, after reading them I genuinely felt touched.
All the letters have been tied in bundles relating to their year, 1956 being a particularly prolific year for writing!
The letters come in a vintage wooden box, with lock & key, unfortunately the key/lock is no longer working.
