In his letters to Aunt Ellen Harrild, written between 1856 and 1873, Richard Jefferies recalls his memories of Sydenham where he lived with his aunt during early childhood. He recounts his uncles electric machine, Christmas parties at Round Hill House and visits to Hastings and Lewes with his aunt and the young Baxters. Richard also describes early bouts of ill-health – no doubt, the early symptoms of tuberculosis that eventually killed him. In others he confided his failings, humiliations, ambitions and plans as a young man. His letters reveal his naϊvety and are very touching.

These letters are published in full with the permission of the British Library.  The book was published on 6 November 2009 in softback and includes illustrations and photographs of people and places portrayed in the letters. 

UK postage only.
