Measuring 4 inches high and 2 ¾ inches wide, this little notebook is a lovely survivor from the 1860s.

Made from brown leather with attractive gilt tooling on the front and back as well as on the spine, it features two identical beadwork panels in shades of blue, white, black, gold and grey.

The inside is lined with watered silk and there are useful envelope pockets at the front and back of the book for holding visiting cards and other essential items.

In the middle of the book there is a thick piece of sketching paper but all the other pages are thin note paper with gold edges.

The first four or five pages have been written on in pencil, listing the names of visitors to the newly married Mr and Mrs John Watson. One page is dated 28th January 1862. All the remaining pages are blank.

Condition: the straps which once held the book shut while retaining a pencil are now gone with just tiny scraps of leather remaining (this can be seen in the penultimate image). Otherwise the book is in nice condition for its age.
