Overview

The remarkable story of one English family during the tumultuous seventeenth century, as revealed through their original letters and documents.

“To know the Verneys is to know the seventeenth century,” Adrian Tinniswood writes in this brilliant book. The Verney family’s centuries-long practice of saving every piece of paper that came into their possession — amassing some 100,000 pages of family and estate letters and documents — resulted in the largest and most complete private collection of seventeenth-century correspondence in the Western world to date. They paint an incredibly accurate and detailed picture of life in England, Europe, and even the American colonies, through the everyday lives of one extraordinary family.
