On offer is an absolutely charming, original 1905 manuscript travel diary handwritten by a young woman, we believe, from Leith Scotland who travels to the Netherlands with her family. The unknown author writes in a firm hand and with an easy friendly manner describes the trip and the sights from boarding the 'Durward' and making 'friends of Captain Robb' as they sailed down the Forth. They journey down past the North England coast across to Rotterdam, visiting The Hague, Amsterdam, Utrecht including train journeys, tourist sights visited, thoughts on people seen etc. Titled "A few days in Holland" the hand made book has a thick card stock cover with a hand painted Dutch scene.
