On offer is a super original 1886 manuscript travel diary handwritten by Mr. B.B. Le Tall an Englishman and an important railway engineer and surveyor [we list separately his travels to the Levant and a Railroad engineering journal of his work in Australia] writes a superbly detailed and comprehensive book of his travels to Italy, Switzerland, Tyrol, Dolomites, Riviera, Norway, Berlin, Dresden +++. Over 300 pages Mr. Le Tall writes an unparalleled journal beginning June 1886 as he travels through Europe to study the flora and fauna of the Alps [research finds that Le Tall was a botanist and was published in later years and given the copious notes and details, this book is assuredly the foundation for his later published writings]. He returns to England and then sets off again and the reader will find that the intrepid traveler sets off again and again writing of his adventures, studies and observations through the Winter of 1889. Ephemera such a tickets, passes, news clippings are littered throughout the books adding further depth to this super narrative. Save for some trauma to the spine of the 18 x 12 cm leather book is otherwise G+.
