The Remaining Diary of Mary Hardy 1773–1809
This companion volume to the four-volume edition The Diary of Mary Hardy 1773–1809 is also by Margaret Bird and is published by Burnham Press. It will appeal to family historians and to other researchers, including specialists such as climatologists and historians of the home, who need access to the full database of each daily entry.
It contains the remainder of the diary text (162,000 words) written in the Letheringsett years 1781–1809, but omitted from Diary 2, Diary 3, and Diary 4. (Diary 1, written at Coltishall 1773–1781, contains the diarist’s unabridged text.) It is intended to be read only in conjunction with the other Diary volumes.
The transcription follows the same editorial method as in The Diary of Mary Hardy. Unlike other publications by Burnham Press this volume has very few illustrations and is without annotations, bibliography and index. More details can be found at The Remaining Diary of Mary Hardy 1773–1809.
