Select Republic of Letters Bibliography

This list of secondary texts is not comprehensive and serves merely as an introduction to and representative overview of the kind of work being pursued across this lively early modern field. The emphasis throughout is on learned correspondence and general or methodological studies. Other really useful epistolary biographies have been created by Josephus Justus Scaliger (1540–1609): Edition of the Correspondence and – with a tighter geographical focus on early modern English letters but a much broader thematic range – by James Daybell and Andrew Gordon (pdf). A list of primary correspondence editions can be consulted on our old website.
