Small 8vo. (7 ¾" x 5 ¼"). Worn marbled paper boards over cloth with heavy wear to head of spine; front hinge cracked. Calligraphic manuscript of Mr. Arthur Westcott of 90 Park Street in Lynn, Massachusetts. Roughly 30 pages of alphabets, cyphers, intricate designs, full page illustrations, flourishes, and the like. Black ink throughout with exception of single page to which gilt liberally applied. Though undated, the year 1901 appears in a single page. That date is consistent with the strong Art Nouveau influences found throughout.
A unique item that reminds us of how people spent their time before the advent of electronics for individuals.
