Inscription reads, “From Uncle Paul Edmund Wilson Jr. For Going to Europe May 2d 1908.”
This is a gift from Paul Kimball, Wilson’s mother’s brother. Kimball was a surgeon. Two years after this, Kimball was stricken by a heart attack after a night out with friends.
Wilson kept a diary of this trip to Europe in 1908, and it later appeared as a preamble to his book A Prelude. It was his first trip to Europe.
His unique bookplate is visible as well.
