On offer is a charming, original manuscript relic of an early 20th Century travel by author, lecturer and professional world traveler William A. Brooks of Wellesley Hills Massachusetts. While not a journal of a particular trip or tour Brooks writes a wonderful account of the many, many people he has met over the years and from the many countries he has visited. This travel journal is typed, likely from handwritten notes and likely prepared for publication though we cannot find any such publications. Brooks was a noted speaker and casual research finds numerous mentions of his holding lectures about his various trips from the early 1900s through the 1920s. He has a wonderful narrative style moving from sophisticated enthusiast to folksy world wise traveller. This manuscript is titled: "Some People That I Have Met. Odds and Ends from a Traveler's Notebooks." There are 27 typed pages. There are some holograph corrections. Measures about 8½" x 11". Overall G+.
