Letts, Son & Co or Thomas Letts (1803-1873) was an English stationer and printer who popularised the diary. He was born at Stockwell, London, the son of John Letts, a bookbinder and printer of the Royal Exchange. In 1816 his father published, ‘Letts's diary or bills owed book and almanack’ as the first commercially produced diary, which Thomas developed into of dozens of differently-printed and bound, annual publications.
