Seller ID:   0002147

On offer is an interesting, rather charming original 1891 manuscript diary handwritten by an Ottawa Canada student, Walter B. Martin, detailing his personal and school times and activities. As with most Canadiana weather plays an important role and is mention daily. A gift from Sid, to Mudde [a nickname we assume] carries the inscription: 'Write in this diary everyday or I will pound you when we meet.' He writes from February 1st to sometime in May when he states his inability to carry on writing a diary. Oddly the first few pages are only Sundays. [He used a red ink at times which smudged somewhat in the corners where he must have leaned his elbows making for some difficult reading.] There are later pages that had been set up for what appears a Grand Tour to Europe and Western Canada. He has made headings for dozens of stops but only written in less than a dozen. All told there are approximately 50 pages of entries. That said the book is folio sized and the 40 odd pages with regular diary entries are well filled. There are also some clippings on a few pages. The 13 x 9 inch leather-backed brown cloth, gilt title on front, covers worn and with some smudging as mention, spine chipped, hinges broken but holding, internally good. Overall Fair+.
