Diary volumes

In this four-volume edition by Margaret Bird the books may be purchased separately or as a set of four. All are hardback, and every volume has an editorial introduction, chronology, glossary, bibliography and index.

The transcription of the diarists’ text uses their original spelling. A minimum of modern punctuation has been inserted, for clarity of meaning. This is explained on the publishers’ website under Helpful layout.

All the illustrations are black and white, apart from the dustjackets which are full colour as shown here. Further information about the contents can be found on the links below.

The prices are for direct sales from the Burnham Press website:
