The inside of the journal is relatively in good condition, certainly readable, pages turn alright, there is some browning and natural aging.
On the cover page it states that this journal was presented to Anne Stout by Mr. And Mrs. Calvin Miller June 29 th , 1849. Below it states presented to Della phelps by friends June 21 st. 1877. Perhaps the book was passed down to the daughter.The journal is filled with writings from many different people, with greetings, congratulations, to poems, sonnetts, writings from books, rememberances. They begin in 1849 and the last date is about 1889. Some of the writing is absolutely beautiful, most if not all the writings are signed and dated. There are also some leaves in the journal. Also there are pages with printed (manufactured) engravings seperating sections. It is a wonderful look back into the past of these two women and the lives and activities of their friends and family.
