On offer is a very interesting archive of five [5] original manuscript diaries dated 1917 through 1926 handwritten by an unidentified rural woman artist living in the Ithaca New York area. While the author is unknown there are many clues and references that should no doubt lead local researchers and historians to discover her identity. Entries ranges from the mundane day to day such as watching a squirrel, fixing the barn door, wanting to go to bed at 9:00 PM but having to say up because visitors dropped by, taking a friend to town, etc. There are many references to creating art both original and copies of known works. The author seems to be a 'contract' artist who is commissioned to create works of art which she delivers to different towns. The author does a fine job detailing her life and times mentioning her daily work, her friends and visitors and she appears to be an avid fisher frequently going out to the local lakes. Many places are named including: Cascadilla near Ithaca, Cayuga Lake, Beebe Lake, Varna, Enfield, Binghamton+++. Names mentioned include: Fred Crutt, Ed Middaugh, Amelia Reed, and the Zonta Club. Overall the approximately 4 x 6 inch diaries [1917, 1918, 1920, 1924 + 1926] are in G+ condition with light normal usage showing. The 1926 diary does have a one inch tear on spine. All are burgundy with black or blind stamped lettering.
