A Bibliography of Secondary Studies of Epistolary Literature

Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675), A Girl Reading a Letter by an Open Window (1657-1659)

Like the other bibliographies on this site, this is a working bibliography because I use it myself and add to it as my studies progress. It is mostly limited to secondary studies of letters and everything that concerns this form. The emphasis is on the eighteenth century, but I have many items of general interest and of interest to people working on letters in other eras. I make no pretence to completeness and am happy to add items which readers who come here feel ought to be here.

Julie de Lespinasse (1732-1776, letter-writer) after Carmontelle (Musée de Chantilly)
