About This Item

ADAMS WATERTOWN NEW YORK NY. Very Good. 1881. Leather. On offer is a fascinating pairing of original handwritten diaries once belonging to Adams, New York man, Edwin H. Chafin. One handwritten diary records the life, activities and commerce of a young Mr. Chafin in 1881 and then 33 years later we have his 1914 diary. Like bookends it is very intriguing to read and compare the activities and duties of a man in his 30s [he reveals his wife is 63 in 1914, thusly 30 in 1881] and then read of his more frequent church going and pension collecting three decades later. Local collectors and historians and genealogists will find a unique prospect of research in this personal history spanning the 19th and 20th centuries. ; 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall; Sociology, Ageism, Age Studies, Aging, Genealogy, Personal, Memoir, Handwritten, hand written, autograph, autographs, signed, letters, document, documents, manuscript, manuscripts, writers, writer, author, holograph, personal, Americana, Religion, Pioneer, Florida, FL, Education, ANTIQUITÉ, CONTRAT, VÉLIN, MANUSCRIT, PAPIER ANTIKE, BRIEF, PERGAMENT, DOKUMENT, .
