An Almanack for the Year of Our Lord God MDCCCVIII.

London: Company of Stationers, 1808. 48mo. 48pp. A remarkably thorough almanac, of a larger format than the usual annual issuance from the Company of Stationers. In addition to the expected calendars, weather forecasts, and dates of eclipses, the almanac also provides a table of British regents from William the Conqueror to George III, brief biographies of the era's rulers of Europe, dates of legal terms, court sessions, and post office holidays, routes of the mail coaches, a listing of current bankers, and the members of the Lord-Mayor's court. A tidy snapshot of the London life in the early nineteenth century, bound in red morocco wrappers highly decorated with navy and cream onlays and extensive gilt patterns. Fine in slighly sullied matching slipcase. Item #31357

Price: $800.00
