A Catalogue of Almanacs. Bookseller's Catalogue 168

London: Marlborough Rare Books, 1996. Illustrated.
12mo, wrappers. Fine.

Most of the 83 almanacs listed in this catalogue were printed in Paris in the early 19th century. Quite a number of these are not listed in Grand-Carteret's Les Almanachs Francais, 1896. which describes 3,633 titles. Despite the great pains taken to print, illustrate, and bind them in as attractive manner as possible, owing to their ephemeral nature the great majority of them ended up in the waste basket at the end of the year. Hence their comparative rarity today.
