On offer is a sensational, original late 19th Century handwritten manuscript relic of the noted American Ship 'Conqueror' being a 126 page journal of a New York to Sydney New South Wales voyage from March 4th 1897 through June 22nd 1897. The unidentified writer does a super job on the narrative the first month or so but maintains course and weather information throughout the voyage and then some more personal narrative and observations a few weeks before landfall. And while the writer is unknown we can state the person was a passenger, not crew, but a passenger of some experience aboard a ocean going vessel with some ease at nautical terms and descriptions. The voyage was one of import to the writer and his descendents as the book was recently, professionally rebound in beautiful wood covers, calf on the spine and a sparkling gilt title to the spine.
