1 I.F. USHER 1900 - 1903 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT EUROPEAN TRAVEL DIARY OF A YOUNG WOMAN ON HER OWN
England, Europe 1900 Leather Very Good 
On offer is a large extensive travel diary used by Miss I.F. Usher of Madison Ave., New York City to record her ocean trips and travel between 1900 and 1903. The diary begins with her landing in Liverpool and a fond farewell to her cabin mate Mrs. Haigh. A woman traveling alone, Ms. Usher does not have an easy time of it right from the start when she is placed with 'an awful looking man' and begs the married couple next door to leave their door open just in case. A dedicated diarist Ms. Usher records everyone she meets, the places she goes and her impressions of all she sees. She travels sparingly taking 3rd class berths and when during the trip her bicycle falls apart and the repair shop charges her two shillings she laments 'I shall spend all my money on the old thing.' Being short on funds though does not stop her generosity when a travel companion has her 85th birthday Ms. Usher buys her a calendar for a gift. [She is obviously an optimist too!] She travels the United Kingdom, Europe and then back to England. Highlights include the Paris Exposition of 1902. Her final entry is dated January 1st 1903 with her in England. Financials and a letters received/letters answered are in the back of the journal proper. This 4 1/2" x 6 5/8" red leather diary is in very good condition.
