Although a biography of Emma, this contains a large number of letters from Charles and is an important source of information about his day to day and family life. Edited by their fourth child, Henrietta Emma, it was first printed for private circulation amongst family and friends; the records of the Cambridge University Press show that there were 250 sets. The published edition is closely similar to the first, but the second volume starts in 1838, with their engagement, instead of in 1840.
