Price an extremely busy attorney in Los Angeles California. Thousands of entries, Price, originally from England, was a dedicated diarist, born in 1898 thusly in his 40s and 50s during the writing of his diaries details to the reader a hard driving, intense man with a soft and sensitive side for his family, those involved in the War effort back home [he is committed to writing multiple British prisoners of war] in England and in many ways the soul of a poet using the endpapers and memorandum pages to record verse he likes and wishes to remember. One also learns of his love for classical entertainment frequently going to operas like Othello, Aida, Don Giovanni, Il Trovatore, Magic Flute and more. Traveling constantly from his multiple offices, probate court, work on films, leading investigations, meeting in other attorney's offices and his home or homes with is wife Betty and daughter Alice, historians and researchers of the time and the place will be hard pressed to find a more detailed rendering of his life in Los Angeles.

The 3" x 4" books are overall G+.
