The Wynne Diaries

£15.00

Product description

The Wynne Diaries (1789 - 1820); passages selected and edited by Anne Fremantle. These journals of Elizabeth Wynne Fremantle have been edited for John Tapling Fremantle and Adam Fremantle, her great, great, great grandsons. Published by Geoffrey Cumberlege, Oxford University Press, 1953.

The early parts of the Wynne Diaries, which run from 1789 to 1857 in 41 manuscript volumes, provide a vivid and informative account of a well connected English family in Europe (mainly in Germany and Italy). The bulk of them were written by Elizabeth, but diaries of her younger sisters, Eugenia (born 1780) and Harriet (born 1786), have also survived. The first two years of Elizabeth's are in French and the rest in English, with some passages in French and German. The diaries, except for one notebook covering part of 1796, which was lost at sea, were preserved by the Fremantle family, but not published until the 1930s. (Source: preface)

Book is in very good/fine condition. Inside covers are slightly brown with age, but otherwise everything seems immaculate. No dust jacket. Blue cloth with gilt lettered spine.
