On offer is a sensational early 20th Century manuscript travel diary, notebook and scrapbook compiled and handwritten by Ian Campbell Hannah (16 December 1874 - 7 July 1944) a British academic, writer and Conservative Party politician and author of such books as Christian Monasticism, Eastern Asia a History, The Heart of East Anglia, The Story of Scotland in Stone, The Sussex Coast, The Berwick and Lothian Coasts. The 250 or so page diary covers the period of 1908 through 1920 and quite heavily leans to an architectural study with super descriptions of the places he visited during his travels. Adding so much more depth are letters, postcards clippings and cut outs of the various places he visited making for a very over stuffed book. The book has 200 pages or so on New York, Cleveland and Pennsylvania and about 64 pages cover Scotland. Interestingly tucked in is a letter from Somers Clark, a noted English Egyptologist communicating about one of his writings. There is also a pen and ink drawing and some colored postcards in the book he used as illustrations. BIO NOTES: Hannah was president of University of King's College in Windsor, Nova Scotia. Married the American artist Edith Brand - he was elected a Member of Parliament at the 1935 election and held that seat until he died in 1944. Overall G+.
