This edition, which includes virtually all the letters of Beethoven and other relevant documents, covers a period of forty years, from 1787 to 1827. It is thus an indispensable source book for a complete study of the composer's life. The three volumes contain nearly 1,600 fully annotated letters and 80 documents presented as appendices.
