Handwritten letters by John Cavafy to C. P. Cavafy. Almost all letters have been written in the period when the poet was living in Istanbul with his mother and two of his siblings (1882-1885). Only five letters belong to later periods (1905-1920). All documents are dated. The letters from the 1882-1885 period are placed in three envelopes (in which they were found), marked “Letters by John Cavafy, sent to his brother C.P.C. in Istanbul 1882 / 1883 / 1884 and 1885”, most probably written by G. A. Papoutsakis.
