The diary features works of art on vellum which date mainly from the 18th century and includes paintings by Aubriet (1665-1742), Ehret (1708-70), Bolton (1758-1799), Turpin (1775-1840) and others. The diary is week to view and includes an internal storage pocket and ribbon marker. It is available in desk and pocket formats.
