Holograph manuscript journal of a seven-week tour through France, Germany and Switzerland taken by Stocker, Apothecary to Guy's Hospital, in the company of the Tupper family, including the 19 year old Martin Farquhar Tupper.

Stocker shows particular interest in places connected with Voltaire and Byron, describing Byron's graffiti at Chillon and Voltaire's bedroom at Ferney.
