About this Item

12 small hardcover volumes, about 9x14 cm or 5.5 x 3.5 inches, of varying bindings, some leatherbound, some cloth. Each volume was sold as a diary for a specific year and has printed dates for each day of the year (a few of the diaries are Kleiner Notiz-Kalenders published by Trowitzsch in Berlin , most are Schreib and Termin-Kalenders by Carl Kuhn of Berlin.) Only the following years remain in the collection: 1826, 1829, 1830, 1833, 1835, 1840, 1841, 1857, 1864, 1870, 1871, 1872. All the entries are in brown ink, in German and in the same female handwriting. All are neat but the writing is tiny and dense and would likely be somewhat hard to read. A few pages suffer from light bleeding from one page to next. Maybe a third to a half of all days have entries but many entries are a page long or more written on interspersed full size pages with no printing, presumably provided by the publisher for this purpose. There are just a few pages with children's scribbling but fortunately these two children scribbled their names: Otto Frischbien and Karl Frischbien. To find an original diary covering over 40 years of one person's life is Rare and Remarkable. Unique and desirable. Bookseller Inventory # a68032
