1 SIR DR. DAVID MOORE LINDSAY 1899 - 1930s ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY, FAMILY HISTORY AND GENEALOGY HANDWRITTEN BY AN ESTEEMED IRISH DOCTOR, WAR HERO, KNIGHT TEMPLAR, EXPLORER, FRIEND OF THE WEALTHY, FAMOUS AND SOMETIME GUEST OF THE KING OF ENGLAND
BALLYMONEY IRELAND SALT LAKE CITY 1899 Full-Leather Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is the extraordinary manuscript vade mecum - a catchall diary, journal, genealogical record and history of a very large, successful family most of whom are renowned doctors, hunters and military men from Ireland. Handwritten by David Moore Lindsay in 1899 this leather notebook is jammed with family trees, autographs including clip signatures, notes on his Black Watch service, secret societies [of which he is addressed as Sir David was a highly placed Knight of the Red Cross, Knight Templar, Knight of Malta of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem etc.], the family's Norman connections, Mount Royal Quebec connections, plus when discoverer of the North Pole, Admiral Peary died he wrote two pages of his memories of Peary and his colleague Stefansson whom Lindsay both knew well. Dr. Lindsay is an amazing man: traveller, explorer, big game hunter, successful soldier, renowned ophthalmologist and superbly detailing his life and times. In many ways this is also a biographical mine of information of famed General Sam Steele of Canada as a goodly percentage of the 150 odd pages of the journal are dedicated to. Collectors and researchers would be hard pressed to find a more balanced picture of a post Victorian gentleman's life with as rich and broad a background as interesting as Lindsay's. Littered with ephemera, news clippings, charts, diagrams, photos, postcards including an enlistment card for E J Steele April 03 1883, a Grand Trunk Railway ticket, Scotland 1927 licence to kill game, a 1926 Denver & Rio Grande Western Railway pass, a tribute to General Sam Steele (of the Lord Strathcona Horse Regiment of Canada. As a Major he distinguished himself when Louis Riel attempted his second rebellion) related through Lindsay's wife plus much, much more. The premium leather book, 7 x 4 x 1.5 inches is 90% full and overall VG.
