On offer is a superb manuscript relic of Victorian Era travel detailing a well documented trip by H R H Prince Edward and various dignitaries to India traveling by way of HMS Royal Yacht Serapis. The journal of the trip begins with the author, [we believe to be M. Harwell Royal Marine as was marked the chest from which this manuscript was rescued though we note a later childish hand circa 1900s wrote the name of Kenneth Ellicott among other scribbles and drawings, a later relative we suspect] being based on a hulk in Portsmouth awaiting the ship being prepared for the 9 month voyage. Researchers and historians of Victorian travel or the global politics and commerce behind this trip will relish the large folio sized 12½ x 8½ inch 86 well filled pages with super detail by this crew man giving good account of movements of crew, HRH, visitors, deaths, accidents in harbor, receiving gifts such as ostriches. Binding still complete, spine cover gone, some blank pages removed but the journal is complete and overall G.
