About This Item

S.S. OCEANIC, CHICAGO ILLINOIS, BOSTON MASS. Very Good. 1900. Leather. On offer are two handwritten manuscript diaries written by George Dresser Smith of Chicago, Illinois. In the first diary, a lovely journal style leather notebook, George identifies himself on the fep. We believe he is a young man, perhaps mid teens, traveling with his family from New York City on August 18th 1900 on the steamer Oceanic. George details a very comprehensive 'classic' European tour for two full months but the writing ends abruptly on October 18th, 1900, the date being handwritten but nothing else on this day and the rest of the book is blank. The second diary is a cheap notebook style paper cover journal. Unnamed and undated the handwriting is most certainly the same yet more mature. George at this point in his life is working/mentoring/studying with Dr. Addison, Dr. Talbot and Dr. Broadhead in and around Boston but they seem to make many trips back and forth to New York. It appears that the doctors are Reverends and from Sunday April 6th through Wednesday May 21st George works, lives and studies among them. Research suggests this journal may be penned in 1913 having the correct correlation of day to date. Further research may bear more precise information. Here is a snippet: "Pleasant and warm day. Went down to boat to go to island of Marcolm where the inhabitants had made no progress for 200 years. They wore bright colors and wooden shoes. All home made and lived in small houses with no chimneys." "When we arrived we took a carriage and went to the church of St Ursula where we saw the bones and sculls of the 7000 vergins who went to Rome and were killed on their way back besides some beautiful glass windows…" VG.; 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall; KEYWORDS: HISTORY OF, RELIGION, CHRISTIANITY, CHRISTIAN STUDIES, AMERICANA, Personal, Memoir, Travel, Handwritten, hand written, autograph, autographs, signed, letters, document, documents, manuscript, manuscripts, writers, writer, author, holograph, personal, Americana, Chicago, Steamship, Europe, Religion, Catholic, Catholocism, antiquité, contrat, vélin, document, manuscrit, papier Antike, Brief, Pergament, Dokument, Manuskript, Papier oggetto d'antiquariato, atto, velina, documento, manoscritto, carta antigüedad, hecho, vitela, documento, manuscrito, .
