1 LIEUTENANT COLONEL PARKINS HEARLE 1875 - 1914 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT JOURNAL AND VADE MECUM HANDWRITTEN BY A LIEUTENANT COLONEL OF THE BRITISH ROYAL MARINES
TAVISTOCK ENGLAND 1875 Good 
On offer is a very interesting Victorian era manuscript book handwritten by Parkins Hearle who [born in Cornwall in 1849, died in Tavistock in 1915] was in the Royal Marines for most of his adult life and where he rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Dated 1875 through October 1914 with several later pages so apparently he wrote in this book until his death. The journal covers a number of subjects and reflects his thoughts and moods at different periods of his life with a mixture of original and non-original work, mainly in the form of poems. The first few pages contain original works on family, children, love etc. These include a 2 page poem about a railwayman who has to decide whether to save the life of his son or a train full of passengers. In 1879 his thoughts turn to war. Includes works by Milton and Kingsley, along with "Ruskin on the subject of War at the Royal Artillery Institution Woolwich." A number of years pass before the next poem dated 1891 "My love of long age" is evidently about his wife Sarah who died in 1886 following the birth of his daughter Elizabeth. A later 1911 poem "My Betty" appears to be about his daughter. From 1892 onwards the contents are once again concerned with war. Several new cuttings are inserted, including details of naval losses at Graspan. The book is a leather bound hardback measuring 185mm by 120mm. 85 pages contain hand written entries. Several additional pages of cuttings, one loose photograph, possibly of Parkins Hearle though it has no inscription. The book is quite thick and only about a third of the pages are written on and includes one detached page. Overall G.
