1 volume, 20 x 12.5 cm.
The transcripts, originally made by Clara Barrus and Elizabeth Burroughs Kelley, should be viewed as a map to the original. Due to the difficulty of interpreting handwriting, complete accuracy of the transcripts cannot be ensured.
During the period covered in this journal, Burroughs published Fresh Fields (1885) and much of the journal relates to his writing and research. There is also a description of his visit with Walt Whitman in Philadelphia in December 1885.
