Author Name:    FLORRIE

Title:   1889 ORIGINAL CHARMING MANUSCRIPT DIARY HANDWRITTEN BY A YOUNG BRITISH TEENAGER LIVING IN SWITZERLAND

Book Condition:   Good+

Type:   Manuscript

Size:   64mo - up to 3" tall

Publisher:   LAUSANNE SWITZERLAND  1889

Seller ID:   0002170

On offer is a small, original and charming manuscript relic of one young British teenage girl named Florrie who travels to Switzerland in 1889. The book, a birthday gift from Dudley (her brother perhaps) was received on January 28 1889. She began using it immediately and wrote in it every day until July 1st when entries come to a sudden end. Florrie writes about her day to day life: social visits, tasks around the house, lessons, attending Church and Bible Class etc. The family may have been of Scottish descent as she regularly mentions the Scotch Church. She spends time with friends and family, all of whom are named. Amusingly, the person she spends most time with (they see each other almost daily) is only referred to as 'German girl.' Florrie wrote most of the diary in pencil and her writing requires patience due to the small size and Florrie's rather untidy writing, but all entries can be made out. The 2½ x 3¼ inch book has gold silk covered boards and spine with floral decoration, decorative gilt patterned endpapers, pencil holder complete with original bone tipped pencil. Gilt to all page edges. Small label for stationers in Lausanne. Overall G+.
