Is it Genuine?
Without seeing the original or at least some better quality photographs, it is hard to say.The owner was asked this question, his reply was:
"I can certify this document is original. My tutor bought this document from the owner of the house of Bérenger Sauniere."
He also added: "I have had an offer of 8000 Euros for it."
I have contacted the owner to see if he can send me some more information and photographs.
I will add any new information if I receive it.
As this Journal is marked May 26th 1901, which is very specific, do other journals exist with different dates?
