About this Item

First printing, 1933. 8vo, bright raspberry cloth gilt, 176 pp. Printed at the Lakeside Press. Near fine, mainly unopened and uncut copy, no jacket. With two laid in letters addressed to Storer Lunt, an editor at Norton who was probably responsible for publishing this book, dated August 5th and September 7th 1934, from an Albert Bery. Both handwritten letters, from California, are very pleasant and mention Lunt's visiting him, and have to do with "my dear young friend, Julia Newberry, the memory of whom is and has been all these years most fragrant. I have tried to tell Miss Mygatt what the 'Diary' and 'Sketch Book' have done for me in recalling days of my Midhsipman life - among the highest of my sixty nine years of a wandering naval career." The second letter says, after acknowledging receipt of two copies of The Diary, ". it recalls memories very dear to me. She was a remarkable young girl, far beyond her few short years, and had she been blessed with health, without doubt would have fulfilled the wish of her father to whom she was so devoted. I propose tomake a pilgrimage to the Los Angeles Public Library if only to have in my hands for a moment the Diary she actually wrote." No doubt an acquaintance of Julia Newberry's in her early life in Chicago in the 1860s-70s. Bookseller Inventory # C000012646
