Scarce almanac, with no copies located on OCLC. 12mo. 12 by 7.5 cm. 156 pp. With nine illustrated plates plus title vignette. These include the frontis, four fashion plates, and four additional plates, two of which have two images each. Besides a diary organizer element and some typical almanac fare, there is a good amount of poetry, and material on dances. With full morocco binding that is also a brass clasped case, which also has a slightly extendable pocket to house slips of paper. Mostly unused, with inked entries only on a memorandum page listing sites -- probably places the initial owner visited in London. Otherwise, light scattered foxing and light wear.
