On offer is an interesting original 1910 manuscript travel diary detailing a voyage to Holland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, & France handwritten by Minerva B. Randall, of New York City. Dated August 2nd through September 10th the reader is presented with a seemingly standard 'Grand Tour' retelling, though this diary is thick with the background history of the sights toured. However there is a fascinating association as the writer is, we believe, the mother of the noted liberal and progressive philosopher John Herman Randall III known as the 'Surveyor of the moral landscape in modern literature', this diary having come directly from his estate. The first few pages are separated from main book and the 3.5" by 6" leather journal is 'rusting' but overall G.
