Mary Watts Diary


Never previously published, due to tiny, almost illegible handwriting, the diary volumes have now been painstakingly transcribed and edited by Desna Greenhow, who has extracted the most illuminating passages. Including detailed annotations, an introductory essay and short commentaries at the start of each year represented, this book chronicles life in this artistic, literary and political circles of the time, while also providing invaluble insights into Mary's own considerable achievements- most notably her management of the building and decorating of her unique Watts Cemetery Chapel.
