On offer is a Georgian era travel journal/diary dated from June 20th 1822 to September 6th 1823. Our traveller, while unidentified by the illegible signature the writer is undoubtedly the father or grandfather of famed musician and musical agent Robert Whyte from whose estate this book was apart of; and as the writer makes extensive notes and observations on this his 4th visit to Germany, Paris and London in well over 80 pages his identity may yet be revealed or confirmed upon further research. Daily entries get easier as one gets used to the author's scrawl. Illness seems to have dogged our diarist alot on this trip. Besides the illegible name on the front that we can not make out along with the title "Journal Pt 4 My 3rd Journey to Germany in June 1822". Research will, no doubt yield many, many details from this determined writer. Overall the book, 8.25 x 6.5 inches, is in very good+ condition save for some light general signs of ageing to the boards, with the pages being very good save for some edges being a little ragged. The spine is nice and tight. The unused last dozen pages have been cut out but the text appears complete.
