About this Item

On offer is an intriguing and rather enigmatic pair of handwritten manuscript diaries belonging to a British gentleman and written during 1930 and 1936. We believe after a casual study of the difficult cursive that our author is a British diplomat or Foreign Service worker using a British Empire Service League. Day to day activities, mention of family, staff, contacts and payments lead one to suspect well placed intelligent writer who makes extensive notations especially of current events and most especially in the event laden year of 1936 when England suffers the death of the King, the new King beset by controversy and finally abdicating and of course Italy's assault on Abyssinia, Hitler's rantings and much, much more. The patient reader/researcher interested in the time period from the perspective of an English diplomat should be well rewarded once the cursive is conquered. 9 x 5.5 inch books are in shabby condition, 1930 worse than 1936. Covers are shot but present, loose text block but still legible and complete. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 0001097
