1864 Wallet/Diary: John Wilkes Booth

Our copy of an unusual diary owned by wealthy Shakespearean actor John Wilkes Booth. Confiscated at his arrest, its missing pages form the backbone of a variety of conspiracy theories on the assassination of president Abraham Lincoln, and a propmaker’s version was featured in the film National Treasure. Ours is of much finer construction, having passed rigorous testing in the XB2000 (currently the standard for international time travel). It features a wallet with expandable gussets, a diary which may be easily removed for replacement, pencil loop, and handy pockets for postage stamps, and ticket stubs like Ford’s Theatre.
