Manuscript travel diaries, 1959-1976.

Physical Description
12 v. ; 25 cm. and smaller

Historical/Biographical Note
The scholarly printer E. Harold Hugo, associated with the Meriden Stinehour Press in Meriden, Connecticut, was a member of the Grolier Club, a New York City bibliophile organization. He went on several trips organized by the club that visited major libraries and collections in England, Holland and Italy, as well as trips of a more general nature in Europe. He died in 1985.

Scope and Contents Note
The collection consists of five leather-bound diaries and seven spiral bound diaries documenting trips to Europe between 1959 and 1976. All the diaries contain notes on sights and people, meals, gifts purchased and expenses. The leather bound volumes document trips made with the Grolier Club and have tipped-in or mounted ephemera (menus and wine lists, tickets, postcards, programs and a few photographs).
Of special interest is the diary kept for the Grolier Club’s “Iter Italicum,” a trip to Italy in 1962, bound in blue morocco gilt by the Harcourt Bindery of Boston, Massachusetts. The final seven leaves contain signatures of fellow Grolier Club members on the trip.
