D487a - Ivory Pocket Diary

189.50
This is the classic little diary that soldiers could conveniently tuck into a pocket. It allowed them to record events or make notes in any kind of weather, especially when rainy or snowing when paper would not hold up. When the notes were no longer needed, the pencil marks were simply wiped off. The rectangular diary is made six internal ivory sheets, each imprinted with a day Monday through Saturday, two heavier external covers and is pinned at the base so they fanned out like a hand of cards. The clasp on this one is German silver (as is the decorative shield on the front cover) and is fully functional. It measures 1_ " x 3_� and is in excellent condition except for one tear down the right side of Wednesday's page. This does not, however, detract from the fanned out display of the diary which is, otherwise, very sharp.
