Collection of Letters

A letter collection or collection of letters consists of a publication, usually a book, containing a compilation of letters written by a real person.

Unlike an epistolary novel, a collection of letters belongs to non-fiction literature. Letter collections have a strong link with biographies, autobiographies and historical narrations.[1] Some biographies have been written in the form of "Life and letters"; in these cases the biographer has access to most of the surviving correspondence of the subject which usually includes a selection from both sides of that person's correspondence. The Life and Letters of Frederic Shields (1912), was a biography of her teacher by Ernestine Mills.[2]
