On offer is a very charming, original manuscript diary amazingly handwritten by a seven year old child named Lucille M Herzfeld as appears stamped on the cover in gilt over red leather. Lucille writes in a confident hand about 122 pages sometimes in English and sometimes in German. Obviously of a wealthy family, traveling in style on the Kaiser Wilhelm II, the writer identifies her age as being 7 years old and makes mention of fur coats and many shopping days. Overall this diary is an impressive accomplishment for any child let alone a 7 year old. Beginning April 23rd and ending in June we estimate based on the dates provided and the days given and the ship they are on to be 1894. Here are some snippets: "On our way from the station to the Hotel I saw a part of the Tiergarten, several beautiful monuments and the building of the Reichstag". "In the afternoon we went to the exhibition. Aunt Emmy treated us all to cocoa and ice cream, the music played and it was charming. I saw lovely pictures". Condition-wise the book is overall VG though a few of the pages have the top margin cut away and the last page has been excised. VG.
