Julia Newberry's Sketch Book is the real-life accounts of two American "Little Women" from the 1860s. Numerous people were delighted by the discovery and release of "Julia Newberry's Diary," and now they may look forward to another exceptional treat: Julia Newberry's sketchbook (or The life of two future old maids).

The sparse drawings in the diary hardly gave a hint of the hidden gems kept throughout the years in the old sketchbook wrapped in morocco by the other of the "two old maids," Julia's devoted younger cousin Minnie Clapp. Together, the narrative and the illustrations make a book that is unheard of in American publishing. It sparkles with Julia's own sardonic humor and is always tinged with a sense of tragedy. A book called Julia Newberry's Sketchbook combines humor and tears, a book which old and young alike will find lasting delight.

Julia Newberry's Sketch Book is an excellent addition to your vintage diary collection or home library.
