1 MARY aka Mamie 1876 Handwritten Manuscript Journal Diary of MARY of Washington DC
Washington DC 1876 Cloth Good+ No Jacket Manuscript 
This charming journal was purchased from the great-great niece of the writer, who was born in Washington, DC just before the Civil War began. She was in her teens when she wrote over 100 pages in her hardback notebook in 1876. In exquisite penmanship, she jotted down notes on history, science, biography, religious and philosophical thought, and other subjects of interest to a young woman with an inquiring mind in Victorian days. Mary, or "Mamie", as she was known, lived a long life of spinsterhood, went blind in her old age, and died in her mid-nineties in the early 1950's. In her final years Mamie "saw" the world through the eyes of her family and friends who visited her, asking them endless questions about the way people and things looked, in every detail. This curiosity reflects the spirit of the young woman who kept this notebook, summarizing what she had learned about so many subjects. The book is well preserved given it's age. It measures 6 3/4" X 8 1/4", and contains over 50 leaves, written on both sides, to equal over 100 pages of script.
