Description

This small vellum diary, with its middle tie, is precisely the sort of notebook an observant gentleman would be expected to carry on his travels. This traveller describes the coinages in Florence and Genoa, records epitaphs, and sketches coats of arms. And like most travellers, he apparently never finished the journal.
Reise von Napoli nach Sicilien und Malta 1679 14 Octr. Ms. handwritten in German, Italian and Latin. Bound in vellum, with flap and tie.
