VINTAGE BOOK SCRAPBOOK ANTIQUE VICTORIAN HAND WRITTEN DIARY WATERCOLOURS 1860's Description

VINTAGE BOOK SCRAPBOOK ANTIQUE VICTORIAN HAND WRITTEN DIARY WATERCOLOURS 1860's

Now Listed in this salefrom my own private collectionis this Vintage Book/Scrapbook.....

This is just a wonderful and poignant scrapbook,all hand written by a Victorian Lady

It contains her thoughts, poems, hand painted pictures, a diary of some of the events in her life, including a detailed description of when she had a visit by HRH The Prince Of Wales to Badmington in MARCH 1866....With the opening written words:

"The Prince is come, Dont say I said to pray. The secret must not be divulged"

Our servant whispers in anothers ear, "I'll let you see him, if you're early here"

"But why the secrecy"

And so it gos on....Fascinating...

It must have taken many many hours to put this together...Just the thought of holding something like this and knowning that nearly 150 years ago a Victorian woman, I believe of some standing, had written this with her own fair hand....

Obviously there is wear, the inside spine is weak, some pages are loose but still intact..The front and rear covers have wear, but it is crammed with pictures from far and wide, newspaper clippings, a picture of the lady herself...An insight into someones life at the time...Such a shame I could not include every picture...but what I have taken I hope, you can see and feel whatI felt on opening this piece of history....It also includes a hand written letter on early water marked parchment paper...

The book measures approx: 8.25 Inches(21cms) X 6.5 Inches(16cms)

Thank You and I wish you the very best of Luck
