1 T. DYSON HOWARD 1890 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT JOURNAL AND DIARY OF COMMERCE, MERCHANDISING, TRADE AND POETRY IN MANCHESTER ENGLAND BY AN EXCEPTIONAL YOUNG MAN
MANCHESTER ENGLAND 1890 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a very interesting 1890 manuscript journal and diary handwritten by an earnest young man [we guess that he is in his early 20s] in Manchester England. Mr. T. Dyson Howard is an extraordinary fellow who works diligently for Mr. B. his boss. [The author mentions many, many people by full name and where they are from but many times he uses initials only.] They appear to run a very large mercantile operation which sells everything from pins, broaches, silks to rifles and guns. They deal with retail customers and also wholesale to other shops. They purchase end of lines, other stores last season's goods and shop them to other merchants or sell retail. This is a very detailed look at this large business. Local collectors and historians will find a treasure trove of 19th century commerce, business and trade. Mr. Howard is commendable in almost all ways - he deals with problem accounts with confidence and grace, he handles all aspects of the shop with aplomb, he practices arithmetic and takes courses and goes to lectures for self-improvement and expanding both his mind and soul. He loves football and is a huge fan of the Manchester U. team. He plays and sometimes works for the football club. A regular church-goer, this is a man of tremendous work ethic caring for the store and its customers as if he was the proprietor. Another commitment to his personal being is the journal itself - the front of the book contains around 70 pages full of his thoughts, songs and poems all handwritten in a very nice hand. He has some personal accounts for items and work done on a few pages and he starts the diary portion near the halfway mark of the book proper. From January 1890 through June that runs for 90 pages. The book is 230mm x 190mm x 20mm part leather and cloth bound. Exterior is somewhat rough but overall G.
