This new biography includes 31 never-before-translated letters, some written by Louis's own hand. An extraordinary collection of documents, photographs, and artistic works--some unearthed from a curator's private archives in France--complement Mellor's meticulous primary research into Louis's life as a child, student, teacher, musician and genius inventor. This new, visually elegant hardcover book adds a dimension to the material on Louis Braille's life that has fed schoolchildren's biography projects for many years.
