Abstract

The article offers an annotated and commentated critical edition of a selection of six letters chosen from the manuscript correspondence between Robert Cecil (1 June 1563 – 24 May 1612), Queen Elizabeth I’s and James I’s Secretary of State, and his son William Cecil, Viscount Cranborne (28 March 1591 – 3 December 1668). These letters constitute the most detailed non-professional advice on handwriting to be found in any Jacobean text.
