- With loosely inserted unrelated letter. Corners and spine-ends sl. rubbed.

= Interesting diary, probably by the personal physician of King Willem II, in which he has entered many details concerning the medical condition of King Willem II, as well as his own social appointments. Dr Everard was the King's physician in 1830 and remained his doctor until the King died in 1849. He was not considered to be the best of physicians by those who knew him at court. Princess Sophie was an outspoken critic of him, especially following the death of Prince Alexander in 1848, which she blamed on Everard's mistreating of his illness. The diary contains numerous concise reports on the medical condition of Willem II (incl. the medicines prescribed for his various ailments), but also lists the numerous social activities mainly in and around Paleis Het Loo. Visitors are mentioned, with times of arrival and departure, intermingled with details of illnesses, miscarriages and news of local and (inter)national concern (such as a fire in the neighbourhood due to lightning, the death of George IV and ships that have arrived in Den Helder from the colonies.
