about

Letters, manuscripts, drawings and ancient books... many are unique documents that offer us a closer look at the men and women who have made history. These written treasures of cultural heritage and social history, patiently collected by the team of the Museum of Letters and Manuscripts in Brussels, are the very source material for historians and researchers, and often constitute the only link between the world of the remote past and the present time. Anthology, which was conceived to preserve and publicise what amounts to an exceptional overview of history, presents 120 documents signed by some of the most famous historical figures (Alexander III, Charles V, Louis XIV), statesmen (De Gaulle, Eisenhower, Leopold I), authors (Voltaire, Dickens, Hugo Claus ), scientists (Vesalius, Marie Curie, Einstein), artists (Delacroix, Van Gogh, Magritte) and musicians (Mozart, Strauss, De Greef).
