Bishop...schools of fish...observations of the sailors' life and work...whales, porpoises, huge jellyfish...stops in Gibralter, Majorca, Monaco, Italy, Vatican City, Pompeii, Switzerland, Germany all described from an intimate first-hand perspective...a number of small drawings by Barrett illustrate the diary...plain board cover with a leather binding strip...Barrett was apparently very well read as he offers some historical background of the places he visits mixed in with his own observations... a fascinating mid-19th century ephemera lot.
