1916-1923
112 handwritten diaries produced by Nikolaus Pevsner between the ages of fourteen and twenty-one. The diaries are bound in blue paper and all measure a uniform 6.6 x 4 inches. Some contain additional artifacts, including notes, letters, cards, and photographs, often inserted in small pockets formed by pages being glued together. The diaries are in German, and some are written in shorthand, possibly Gabelsberger shorthand or an adapted version.
The titles and numbering in this file have been transcribed directly from the label on each volume. Pevsner's labeling varies from year to year - some volumes are simply labeled with a "P." (presumably for Pevsner) and a date, while others are labeled "Tagebuch," or specifically "Erlebnisse eines Sechzehnjährigen" and "Studienjahr." Beginning with the volume labeled "Tagebuch I. (48), 1919 June-July" the volumes are numbered sequentially from 48 to 113, in addition to their primary titles and numbering.
Please note that these diaries require special handling.
