Arthur W. Stelfox - Diary from 21st Sept. 1949 till, vol. 18

Arthur Stelfox, Irish naturalist, was a conscientious observor and meticulous record-keeper, judging from his field notebooks—detailed descriptions of collecting locations and associated weather precede each list of specimens. Stelfox has carefully marked the year in beautifully shaded serif-style characters (keep an eye out for these!), adding an element of beauty to an otherwise functional item. His handwriting, in relatively faint pencil, can be challenging to read, but you faithful volunpeers are more than capable of decoding his records! Dig in with us.
