Publisher's Weekly

This literary valentine edited by poet and translator Scheu-Riesz presents epistolary marriage proposals by historical figures. Grouped by era (Renaissance, Baroque, Victorian, etc.) and including declarations of love by Henry VIII, Abraham Lincoln and Victor Hugo, these letters offer models for popping the question for those without their own personal Cyrano de Bergerac. By turns funny and sincere, with delightful illustrations, this is a great gift for the paramour who's reluctant to settle down and might take the hint.
