Handwriting still brings writers to life after 200 years

From the capital letters she designed on the cover to her tiny writing inside, Charlotte Bronte’s Book of Rhymes (or Ryhmes as she spelled it) is an enticing piece of history. Unearthed last month and sold for more than €1.2million in New York last weekend, it will be housed in the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth, Yorkshire – the very house where 13-year-old Charlotte put this little booklet together did almost 200 years ago.

that it will end up back where it began is certainly some kind of accidental ending. That it contains 10 verses written by the author jane eyre when she was a kid is definitely pure historical and literary gold dust. But the fact that it was also written by hand – that adds a completely different dimension to my book.
