Title: 1920s Original Manuscript Diary of a Professional World Traveler's Trip to the Zuyder Zee
Description: Holland Netherlands Zuyder Zee Zuiderzee, 1920. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. Manuscript, On offer is a super, manuscript relic of an early 20th Century trip to the Netherlands written by author, lecturer and professional world traveler William A. Brooks of Wellesley Hills Massachusetts. This travel journal is typed, likely from handwritten notes and likely prepared for publication though we cannot find any such publications. Brooks was a noted speaker and casual research finds numerous mentions of his holding lectures about his various trips from the early 1900s through the 1920s. He has a wonderful narrative style moving from sophisticated enthusiast to folksy world wise traveller. This manuscript is titled: "From the Western Islands to the Zuyder Zee." (Zuiderzee). There are 40 typed pages. There are holograph corrections throughout. Measures about 8" x 11". Overall G+. Very Good.
