Diary of Trip to Jersey and Guernsey (notes from Andrew Mitchell)

Eds Susan Ilie and John Le Dain ELSP c/o The Guernsey Press Shop

A delightful, well illustrated, diary of Andrew Mitchell's fortnight's holiday in the Channel Islands in 1866.  Edited by Susan Ilie and John Le Dain.  A total of 96 pages (160 x 100mm) in size is very similar in size to the original diary.  

Andrew Mitchell was 20 years old at the time of this visit and describes in great detail the vessels seen during his sea trip from Southampton.  He compares the fish market in St Peter Port, Guernsey with the Lowther Arcade in London's Strand and is clearly impressed with the cleanliness and variety of fish on sale.  

He describes his visits to Plemont and St Brelades in Jersey and is most disappointed that the boats were not sailing from Guernsey to Sark due to bad weather.  These were days long before tourists had cameras so some 20 pages of this book are well illustrated and have passages taken from Black's guide to give a pictorial view of what Andrew will have seen during his holiday.
